Watching Alec Ryder work his magic to get to this point had to what it was like for Shep’s team following her around.  You think ‘oh you guys are so useless, why am I doing all the work” blah blah blah…  You’re always told how N7 soldiers are a cut above the rest, that there’s a reason they’re chosen for the role, but it doesn’t really sink in until you’re following Alec around, shields down with half health wondering how the hell this old guy is dodging so many bullets.
