Just a reminder and a heads-up for new editors: Codex entry pages are to be left pristine, i.e. copied directly from the in-game Codex with no edits (aside from any spellchecks). Save new information for related non-Codex articles. --Tullis 13:08, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Codex inconsistency on Battle of the Citadel Paragon
I'm hoping that I can get come confirmation on this before I change it, but after looking through all of my saved games, I notived that the Paragon version we have here is incorrect. However it is worded like a Codex entry so I would like some confirmation on this before I replace it. In the blockquote below I have a copy of the Paragon version of the Battle of the Citadel from my game, all of my saved games say this, and I was hoping to get some confirmtaion before I replace it with this one.
“In 2183, a rogue Spectre named Saren Arterius attacked the Citadel through a functioning mass relay hidden inside a statue on the Presidium. Saren brought a combined force of krogan and geth infantry from Ilos, timing the attack so that he would be at the Citadel's controls when the geth fleet and his flagship, Sovereign, arrived. In the battle that followed, the Destiny Ascension dreadnought evacuated the Citadel Council, but ordered the wards' arms closed, sealing them and the geth inside an impregnable shell, cutting off any reinforcements or escape. This combative tactic would have wholy destroyed the Council fleet were it not for the actions of Commander Shepard, who had followed Saren through the relay from Ilos.
Led by Shepard's ship Normandy, the Systems Alliance's Fifth Fleet assembled under the command of Admiral Hackett and waited just outside the Citadel's closed arms. Meanwhile, Shepard fought Saren's forces inside the Citadel and eventually forced the ward arms open again. The Normandy defended the Destiny Ascenion as it fled, saving the lives of the Citadel Council. Taking its cue from the Normandy, the Fifth Fleet supported the withdrawal, and took heavy losses from sovereign's advanced firepower. At about the same time Shepard killed Saren, Sovereign's once-impervious kinetic barrier overloaded and the Fifth Fleet focused its military might to shatter the flagship. The geth fleet was soonn decimated without its leader.
In gratitude for the many human lives sacrificed to save it, the Council made the unprecedented move of offering humans the chance to become a Council race. Ambassador Donnel Udina and Captain David Anderson accepted this honor on behalf of their species.”
If anyone can check and confirm, I'll replace it, but I figured I'd get some input here before I do as it has been up for a while. Lancer1289 20:16, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
- Yes, your version is what's in my game as well. Looking through the history, it looks like an anonymous editor changed the article to its current state shortly after the initial version (what you have) was added. Guess it was just overlooked. Dammej 20:32, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
- Well that's good, probably someone who was trying to improve the wiki, not knowing our policies on the Codex. Anyway I'll replace the current version with the real one, and hope that no one objects. Lancer1289 20:38, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
It seemed pretty clear to me from the footage from ME1 that Sovereign was the only ship to end up inside the Citadel when the station's arms were closed -- the Destiny Ascension along with the Citadel Fleet and the Geth fleet. If the Fifth Fleet arrived to save the D.A. (paragon choice), the fighting with the Geth was all done outside the Citadel. Does anyone know why the ME2 codex relates a slightly different story? 184.108.40.206 00:43, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
