While traversing slipspace the flood controlled Covenant cruiser Indulgence of Conviction (The Cruiser that brought the flood to Earth in the Halo 3 mission Floodgate) suffers a strange accident. Whether through a fluke of Quantum Mechanics, or the mad designs of some depraved god, an exact duplicate of the ship is created. While the original continues on to Earth, the duplicate is thrown wildly across dimensions and crash lands on the Systems Alliance colony of Eden Prime in the Mass Effect universe during the time period of Mass Effect 2.
There are 2 scenarios here
- Through a crazy series of events involving a computer virus somehow combining with the Common Cold, The Reapers get lost in space and do not show up in the Mass Effect galaxy.
- The Reapers updated their anti-virus software and ate a bunch of oranges, so computer/cold virus combo had no effect and the Reapers continue on as usual.
Will the Mass Effect races be able to deal with this new threat in time, or will the Flood turn the entire galaxy into an unending hellscape of shambling horrors?
How will this end?
