Once you are on the citadel, head to the Hospital to check on your wounded comrade. I highly recommend checking the Sirta Industries shopping terminal in the middle of the Lobby and picking up any Medi-Gel upgrades. Your comrade will be in the first room on the right just after leaving the lobby. Now head to the embassies and take a right once you get there. Go up the steps and go to C-Sec office for a chat with an old friend. Then go to Udina's office just across the hall to be brought to the council.
Talk to the council for a bit and then you'll be returned to Udina's office. Check the Spectre office which is just across the hall. There are two terminals in here, one that will give you new information and allow you to authorize certain requests while the other allows you to purchase weapons, armor, and mission critical items that you missed on a mission. There is also a shooting range here so you can compare how weapons handle and see which ones you like. Now head back to the main lobby of the embassies and talk to the reporter. You'll have a Renegade and a Paragon interrupt chance. Use the Paragon chance to acquire her as a War Asset. You can also talk to James here by the window. Visit C-Sec and Udina again to "investigate" if you like.
If you return to the Hospital and you can talk to two doctors. Talk to Dr. Chakwas to get her back onboard the Normandy with you and then Dr. Michel who will tell you about your comrade's condition. Head to the Normandy Dock and talk to Diana Allers in the Lounge area. She's the reporter in the area who sounds remarkably like Jessica Chobot (because she is). She can join your ship (non-combat).
Just when you try to get on the Normandy, you'll have a very peculiar dream. You will be running through a forest and find the little boy from Earth in the white sweater. Try to talk to him and he'll run away. Keep running and trying to find him. When you find him the second time, the dream will end.
|You can recruit Dr. Michel for your ship's Med Bay instead of Dr. Chakwas. You must first have to turn Dr. Chakwas down and then have enough reputation to persuade Dr. Michel to join. This may not be possible on your first playthrough.|
