I did finish Jack’s loyalty mission, along with some other side missions.
For Jack’s mission, she wants to return to the facility where she grew up so she can blow it up. She was tortured and experimented on, which does explain why she is so misanthropic now. In fact, I’m surprised she isn’t worse!
It was a pretty straightforward mission at first, with us going through an abandoned and overgrown facility. We fought off some Varren. And then, we ran into Blood Pack mercs! Their leader threatened to kill us, so we killed him first. We then found the person who hired the mercs. A man named Aresh had hired him, because just like Jack he had lived at the facility and wanted to return.
We talked to him some more, and he wanted to rebuild the facility and resume experiments, “to unlock biotic potential”. I was asking him why he would want to do it, and he said that his suffering must have been for suffering. Jack wanted to kill him, but I didn’t let her. We told him to leave, and then we blew the place up.
We returned to the Normandy, and Jack and Miranda had a fight. Miranda wouldn’t admit to Jack that what Cerberus had done to her was wrong. I had to side with Jack on this one; what happened to Jack was very messed up, and even if it was a facility that had gone rogue, Cerberus should have been monitoring them better and put a stop to it. Why would they just let a facility stop reporting to them? That was irresponsible. But now, Miranda hates me and is no longer loyal. I hope there’s a way to regain her loyalty. I’ll have to work on that.
I also prevented the MSV Broken Arrow from crashing into a human colony. It had been taken over by geth, so I had to fight them off and restore power to the engines so the ship could be maneuvered away from the planet. It was a timed mission, and I always feel stressed watching the time tick down. I’m more used to it now, and handled it just fine.
I also took care of an anomaly I found while scanning planets. The geth had set up a climate change thing, and I stopped it and fought them off. Now we have it, and maybe it will be useful later? I’ll have to find out.
Next time, I’ll continue to finish off side missions and maybe finish Tali’s loyalty mission.
