Re: Mass Effect 3
You have to wonder though, who they were planning on liquidising before they settled on humanity. I mean, Sovereign wouldn't have tried to open the citadel relay to dark space unless they had a prime candidate. Yet from what Harbinger says the council races were all discarded as unsuitable. The Vorcha certainly had an adaptive genome, but I can't see their intelligence being sufficient for heir needs. The Batarians maybe?
Is intelligence even a factor anymore, now that the dark matter plotline has been dropped? I thought the Starchild just needed someone to make the choice between the three fates, regardless of their genetics...
