Marauder Shields 28: Signals (Mass Effect) by koobismo Marauder Shields 28: Signals (Mass Effect) by koobismo
The 28th episode of the "Marauder Shields" Mass Effect comic.

In this one... Desperate decisions are made and an old friend returns, proving he is as dangerous in death as he was in life.

Be sure to play this track in the background to upgrade your reading experience: [link]

This is an ongoing story providing an alternative fan-made ending to the Mass Effect story, with a single game-changing maverick transforming the course of history: Marauder Shields. Be sure to start reading at episode 6.

Thanks and pat-on-the-bottoms to MichelKobayashi for making us believe in Marauder Shields and to my awesome team, with a special mention to Matt "Calavera" O'Connor who helped me make a few lines in this episode even more spunky!

Hold the line!

[The Mass Effect universe, its design and characters are owned by BioWare/EA Productions. This is a work of parody and fan-fiction, created under the terms of fair use. And, yes, I remain a giant fan of BW & ME]

P.S. Took me some time to complete... But I hope you see why. ;) I think it's the longest episode to date!

P.S.2. If you're not following me yet, do so at [link] - I've got bacon.

P.S.3. If you like ambients and epic space music, be sure to buy the soundtrack from my unfinished game, "Starsignal", available at [link] - more info here: [link] - helps me finance my own projects and fun stuff.

P.S.4. Help me spread this series around - retweet, send out links, share this with your friends and post it on your facebook wall! Everything helps!

I initially dismissed the thought that the Crucible was a Trojan Horse simply because the Reapers are far too powerful to defeat without a somewhat miracle device so either way we are toast.
But latter Cerberus actually found a way to harness indoctrination and even control reaper troops, I guess things can be different, especially if the Crucible is an indoctrination amplifier...

ohhhhh god this makes so much sense

The Crucible being a Trojan Horse makes far more sense than someone somewhere figuring out hat for some reason plugging it into the Citadel will destroy the Reapers.

Which come to think of it... why would anyone ever think that would work?

Loving this! The writing is amazing. March down to Bioware and hand them this comic. They could learn a lot from you!
