EDI's fate in ME3 (May be spoilers in here)

#1 Posted by kristov_romanov (465 posts) -

I kinda like EDI a lot, and Tricia Helfer has said she is recording lines for ME3.

I am wondering what has happened her now that the new Normandy is back in Alliance hands. Is she shackled again, or as trusted as any other member of the crew? Or is she in some AI lab being examined?

Anyone who has read the novels would know what the Alliance think of AI research, versus the greater Citadel council's ideas.

Would be great to hear if anyone else is interested in her fate.

If she's as clever as she seems: she will bargain with them. Keep her integrated and unharmed, or she'll wipe that Cerberus data. Besides, I'm sure she's proven her use in defending the ship.

@kristov_romanov: I haven't gotten around to reading the ME novels. What exactly is the Alliance stance on AI?

Shove that sultry voice down the body of an android! Better yet, put her AI into the robo doggy.

The Alliance simply took the SR2 and simply remodeled it to suit Alliance Designs, EDI is still in the game

@FreakAche: They did illegal research into AI in the first book after finding some reaper tech. It explains how Saren got into his whole situation.

When the Council found out about the research the Alliance received heavy fines and

I know she will be back in it, I am wondering in what capacity though. This, from Game Informer via the Mass Effect wiki, piqued my interest: 

The Normandy SR-2 will return in Mass Effect 3, and it has been claimed by the Systems Alliance, who has taken the ship apart, studied it, and then rebuilt it with new technologies and new areas.

No not really.  She didn't really use 90% of the stuff we were told she could...
 
She did prove her use in helping Joker though.

She also protected the ship's system from getting permanently friend when they boarded the collector ship as well. She's proven her use to me.

^Lmao. Nailed it.

EDI was awesome. My love for Tricia Helfer could be slightly clouding my judgment, but she became one of my favourite characters in the entire trilogy in ME 3.

I was going through some of my old posts and saw this again

Well, given her previous role in BattleStar Galactica, predicting that might happen seems pretty obvious in hindsight (not that I was expecting it).

SHE WAS INDOCTRINATED ALL ALONG!!!!! THEORIZE!!!

Seriously though, as far as my ending is concerned...

She's no different than anyone else, cos I chose synthesis.

Also, keep in mind that they'll be developing more content than just the ending stuff, so it's possible that whatever she is recording is for another piece of DLC.
