Citadel: Snap Inspection Walkthrough

If you have  Ashley Williams or Kaiden Alenko in your party, she or he will stop and salute the Admiral. If both are, then Kaiden will be the one who salutes him.

After the Admiral's irritation is clearly visible because of the Normandy being handed over to the Citadel Council, he demands to make an inspection of the Normandy.

You can choose to refuse using the Spectre authority, making the Admiral to leave angry netting you Renegade points, but no experience. If you don't oppose him, he makes his inspection and returns to you with a list of grievances. 

  • The Normandy's CIC is too far from the bow.
  • The stealth system isn't worth the cost of the element zero used in the Tantalus drive core.
  • He states that the alien crewmen on board, are a risk to Alliance security.

You have a choice on how to respond to each of these points. Only Charm or Intimidate will make diminish Admiral Mikhailovich's opinions. You need to have at least 9 at both Charm or Intimidate to answer all their associated dialogue trees.
Different answers result in disctint rewards, varying from grenades to a codex entry, and influence how positive or negative the Admiral's report will be.
