Thunderbolt: "CITADEL ACTION NEWS, 08.04.2183: SHEPARD NAMED FIRST HUMAN SPECTRE
CITADEL - We have received word from our sources deep inside the Presidium that Commander John Shepard has been named the first human Spectre in history.
Shepard joins the elite ranks of the galaxy's strongest and bravest during a dangerous time. Shepard's promotion to Spectre is the result of one Spectre, the famous Saren, a Turian, reportedly going rogue.
Even though the promotion took place just a few hours before this report was filed, several high ranking officials were quick to question some of Shepard's appointments.
"His crew is filled with questionable aliens," one official stated. The source asked that their identity not be revealed. "Sure, he's got a very balanced team that includes specialists in biotics and technology, but can we really trust our lives to a team of aliens?"
Members of his crew defended Shepard's choice.
"Anyone who's got a problem with the Commander's choices can take it up with me," Urdnot Wrex, a Krogan Battlemaster stated after being asked about the mixed-species crew. "If we can't stop Saren, it won't matter where we call home. None of us want to see our species extinct."
