Founded in 2176 and launched in 2185, the Andromeda Initiative is a civilian, multi-species project created to send scientists, explorers and colonists on a one-way trip to settle in the Andromeda Galaxy. With powerful benefactors lending their support, the program has grown substantially in scope since its inception. The Initiative's ultimate goal is to establish a permanent presence on the seemingly resource-rich frontier of Andromeda, and eventually create a reliable route between it and the Milky Way Galaxy.
First contact protocol[edit | edit source]
In the event any member of the Pathfinder team encounters intelligent alien life, it is imperative that "first contact" protocols be strictly observed. The Andromeda Initiative holds the principles of peace and cooperation among our highest ideals. Aggressive action against extraterrestrials is only permitted when hostile intent is clearly demonstrated and Pathfinder team members are at obvious risk of injury or death.
Pre-launch training[edit | edit source]
Starting on 7 November 2016, the Andromeda Initiative training became available on the Mass Effect website. There are six parts of training. If all six videos are viewed on the official Training Hub while the player is logged in to the site, they will receive an in-game exclusive special edition Pathfinder helmet.
