Asari Scientist is a non-playable class in Mass Effect.

This class is primarily focused on biotic power, though the Electronics talent, unlocked from First Aid, can increase shield strength as well as provide some ability to overload enemy shields and access secure objects and systems. Both an omni-tool and a bio-amp may be equipped. Lack of any special accuracy or damage with weapons makes a pistol a good standard choice, but as NPC squad members can be surprisingly accurate with any weapon even without special training, a sniper rifle or assault rifle can be effective as well. Weapons should probably be modded for support utility over raw damage as the Asari Scientist can't compete in the latter area with more combat-oriented classes.

Warning: If all of Liara's abilities that are actively usable in combat are unlocked, the Overload ability icon becomes hidden in the HUD. This occurs in all versions of the game, despite changes in the HUD design. The player will only be able to benefit from Liara's Overload if the Squad Power Usage option is set to "Active" allowing her to use it without being explicitly ordered.
