my opinion of mass effect is getting worse and worse........theres a show that i LOVE that came out in 2004 and "mass effect" ripped off half of its sh*****t from this show......a word strait from the show description (Stargate Atlantis follows the present-day adventures of Lt. Colonel John Sheppard and his military team from Earth, Season one began airing in the United States on July 16, 2004).....sorry for the book/spam
Depends. In the games he is a Lieutenant Commander - the same rank as Ashley in ME3. If the rank on this image is correct, he is now a full Commander (one pay grade/rank higher).
It's often confusing because both ranks are generally referred to as Commander, both in-game and in real life, just like Fleet Admiral, Admiral, Vice Admiral, Rear Admiral Upper Half, and Rear Admiral Lower Half are all generally shortened to Admiral.
Shepard: saves galaxy from Sovereign, saves galaxy from Collectors, cures genophage, saves galaxy from Reapers... never once gets a promotion.
