Earth is under attack by a monstrous race of gigantic living ships known as the Reapers. Even if Commander Shepard could unite all surviving species in the galaxy, only a miracle could save them. Then again, Shepard did come back from the dead.
In the DLC 'Citadel DLC' Ashley Williams and Commander Shepard have a drinking contest at the casino bar. At that moment a Vorcha and Batarian walk over to them. This is the conversation they have. [The batarian hits Commander Shepard's arm to get his attention]. Batarian: "My friend doesn't like you Alliance types". Ashley Williams: "Listen dude, we're trying to do something here".
