I'll add one more response then sign off. I appreciate your comments, but I think they're more of opinion than fact. Husks are Husks, plain and simple. They're Human corpses reanimated by the Geths using Reaper tech, specifically using a kind of impalement. There's not enough said about how Collectors are made to support that their origin is anything like Husks. Harbinger only possesses Collectors. I would think if Husks were so similar he'd once in a while possess them too. Protheans are a much smarter race to start with. Also, you started out saying Husks are not indoctrinated. Now you're lumping Collectors in with them saying they're like a form of Husk. Can't really have it both ways. As with indoctrination, you seem to be interjecting a lot of your own assumptions when it comes to the reasons for Harbinger's actions. Just because he admires Shepard's tenacity and ingenuity doesn't mean he's there merely because he's fascinated by him. A strange romance possibility and something about giant bedbugs comes to mind. LOL At the end of ME 2 and even before Shepard escapes the asteroid before destroying the alpha relay Harbinger makes it clear he's there to destroy the Humans (asteroid) and that the Collectors had failed him (ending). That sounds all too much like a war bent general to be there just spectating. Clearly he's there overseeing what the Collectors are doing. Although I do find huge flaw in him saying to Shepard on the asteroid that Humanity must be destroyed. Kinda throws the whole harvest the smart, let the rest go mission statement right out the hypocritical window. So yeah, lots of flaws in the game, but there's every bit as many flaws and ideas in what some of the fans want (and try to creatively interpret). Speaking of the asteroid, I had one guy refute what I said about it not making sense that the endings showing all the relays being blown up didn't in turn wipe out the systems they were in, using the supernova created by the asteroid hitting the alpha relay as an example. He claimed it was explained by Dr Kenson that "a mass relay blowing up by itself won't cause a mini supernova but rather its because the size of the object they slam into the relay causes the mini supernova effect due to sheer force". Well no she didn't. I showed that conversation to him and nowhere in it does she say or even imply that. She only said the asteroid would probably be enough to destroy it. Furthermore, you'd think something as powerful as the Crucible would create just as much force, causing a supernova and in turn destroying the systems the relays are in. Whether it's an intelligent Prothean ray beam or not, it's still using a shit load of energy to destroy THAT many relays one after the other, yet no supernovas, no destroyed systems.
