Chapter 61 – The trial
To Garrus’ slight surprise the garden plaza, where the hearing was to be held, wasn’t anything like the courtrooms he had seen back on the Citadel, when he had been called to witness in cases he had worked in C-Sec. It was an amphitheatre-like construction that didn’t look like it belonged inside a starship. There was also a large number of quarians, who had gathered around to follow the proceedings.
As they walked through the crowd Garrus noticed that the three judges were already standing on the podium waiting for them. Shala’Raan took her place on the highest seat as the spoke-person of the gathering.
“This Conclave is brought to order,” she started formally. “Blessed are the ancestors who kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this season. Keelah se’lai.”
The entire crowd repeated the last words, and even Garrus found himself muttering them along with the others.

Chapter 59 – Admiral Hackett
Shepard came back late in the ship's evening. She made her usual round to check on the crew.
“Sorry about Miranda's burst,” she said, leaning to the door frame. “I guess it was eating her that you knew where I would want to go next, and she had no clue.”
“Don't worry about it,” Garrus shook his head. “After I went to the bar I met an old friend of yours. Conrad Verner.”
“Verner?” Shepard repeated surprised. “That guy who wanted to be a Spectre? What was he doing on Illium?”
“Trying to be like you,” Garrus replied. “And failing just as miserably as I did. I pulled him out from a jam he had gotten himself into and told him to go home.”
“Good,” Shepard sighed. “I don't think I would have had patience to deal with him today. Two years ago he was a pain in the ass.”
“Don't worry, he still is,” Garrus smiled. &

Chapter 57 – Protheans
The next few days they kept jumping from one system to another, mostly doing some mysterious ‘Cerberus business’, but the normal status quo was returned on the ship, when Miranda stayed on board, fulfilling her duties as the executive officer while Shepard was away.
Garrus stayed on board as well, improving the calibrations of the cannons. Every evening Shepard visited him to see how much progress he had made, but it appeared that their little, private heart-to-heart conversations had come to an end. The few words they exchanged were strictly to business and Shepard never stayed long.
During their conversation the previous evening, Garrus had told Shepard he expected to have the cannon ready to use during the next day. He had left the last set of diagnostics running, when he headed for lunch.
“Make way!” a shout came from the direction of the lift and Garrus turned to look, recognising Zaeed’s voice. “Mov

Chapter 55 – The trap
“We need a little help here, EDI…” Shepard said, when their platform finally stopped spinning.
“I’m having trouble maintaining connection,” the AI reported. “There is someone else in the system.”
“Collectors!” Garrus warned, when he saw another platform fly toward them.
“Damn!” Shepard cursed. “Take cover and take them out!”
That was easier said than done. The platform carrying their enemies danced around from left to right and back again before stopping and unloading the remaining two Collectors on the platform Shepard's team was using. After the platforms were connected, it was easier to aim, but the enemies had the same advantage. Finally the Collectors were down and they had a chance to look at the data terminal EDI was trying to access.
“Connection re-established,” the AI reported. “I need to finish the download before I can override an

Chapter 52 – Maelon
In the next hospital room they found a dead female krogan lying on a table. Always curious for data, Mordin hurried to scan her.
“Dead krogan,” he muttered. “Female. Tumors indicate experimentation. No restraint marks. Volunteer. Sterile Weyrloc female willing to risk procedures. Hoped for cure. Pointless. Pointless waste of life.”
“I didn’t expect you to be disturbed by the sight of a dead krogan,” Shepard pointed out sharply.
“What? Why?” only then the professor seemed to notice Shepard and Garrus. “Because of genophage work? Irrelevant. No, causative. Never experimented on live krogan. Never killed with medicine. Her death not my work, only reaction to it. Goal was to stabilize population. Never wanted this. Can see it logically… but still unnecessary. Foolish waste of life. Hate to see it.”
“I didn’t think you’d had much direct contact with things lik
