From: Mass Effect 1

Shepard: Do you really believe the Reapers will let us live?

Saren: Now you see why I never came forward with this to the Council. We organics are driven by emotion instead of logic. We will fight even when we know we cannot win. But if we work with the Reapers—if we make ourselves useful—think how many lives could be spared! Once I understood this, I joined Sovereign, though I was aware of the… dangers. I had hoped this facility could protect me.

Saren: You’ve seen the visions from the beacon, Shepard. You, of all people, should understand what the reapers are capable of. They cannot be stopped. Do not mire yourself in pointless revolt. Do not sacrifice everything in the name of petty freedoms. The protheans tried to fight and they were utterly destroyed. Trillions dead. But what if they had bowed before the invaders? Would the protheans still exist? Is submission not preferable to extinction?”

Shepard: Together we can stop Sovereign. We don’t have to submit to the Reapers. We can beat them!

Saren Arterius: I no longer belive that Shepard. The visions cannot be denied. The Reapers are too powerful. The only hope of survival is to join with them. Sovreign is a machine. It thinks like a machine. If I can prove my value, I become a resource, worth maintaining. There is no other logical conclusion.

Shepard: You were a Spectre. You swore to protect the galaxy. Then you broke that vow to save yourself.

Saren: I’m not doing this for myself. Don’t you see, Sovereign will succeed. It is inevitable. My way is the only way any of us will survive. I’m forging an alliance between us and the Reapers, between organics and machines, and in doing so, I will save more lives than have ever existed. But you would undo my work. You would doom our entire civilization to complete annihilation, and for that, you must die.

Saren: Join Sovereign and experience a true rebirth!

Shepard: I’d rather die than live like that.

Saren: Then you will die. And your companions. Everyone you know and love. Everyone you’ve ever met. Don’t you understand? You will all die!

Wrex: So this is the great Turian general? How did your kind ever beat us?

General Septimus: I may be drunk, krogan, but you are ugly and tomorrow I will be sober!

Tali: Dancers are highly respected among my people, but I get the feeling these women are not held in high esteem.

Sovereign: The pattern has repeated itself more times than you can fathom. Organic civilizations rise, evolve, advance. And at the apex of their glory, they are extinguished. The Protheans were not the first. They did not create the citadel. They did not forge the mass relays. They merely found them. The legacy of my kind.

Shepard: Why would you construct the mass relays then leave them for someone else to find?

Sovereign: Your civilization is based on the technology of the mass relays, our technology. By using it, your society develops along the paths we desire.

Sovereign: Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.

Kaiden Alenko: I don’t think this is a VI.

Sovereign: There is realm of existence so far beyond your own you cannot even imagine it. I am beyond your comprehension. I am Sovereign.

Vigil: You are not Prothean, but you are not machine either. This eventuality was one many that was anticipated. This is why we sent our warning through the beacons.
