Here is a comic that’s kind of related to today’s episode: Life is Short, Terrain Hard.
Now that we’ve absorbed Mass Effect 3, we know that this Luna encounter is where EDI was created. She went nuts, we destroyed her, Cerberus salvaged her and stuck her into the Normandy 2, and then in the last game she was downloaded into TIM’s second-hand sexbot.
I have to say, that really does sound like a Cerberus plan: A rogue AI tried to kill everyone, so we’ll put that AI into the most advanced ship in the galaxy. As opposed to just designing an AI from scratch that doesn’t have a bunch of known “KILL ALL HUMANS” bugs. It’s a miracle the Normandy 2 didn’t end up as another failed Cerberus base, filled with bloodthirsty killbots and dead civilians.
