Imagine the Normandy returning to Earth and trying to establish a comm link with the Alliance. Imagine the entire crew anxiously waiting and hoping to hear another voice after so long. Suddenly the crew erupts in cheers when Admiral Hackett’s voice comes over the comms.
“We read you Normandy, loud and clear.”
There’s a short pause before Hackett says, “We got someone here who wants to say hello to the crew.”
A weak, raspy voice is then heard.
“This is Commander Shepard….welcome home Normandy.”
