First time I played through, I did the Noveria mission before getting Liara (I was a noob and stupid, not realizing how awesome Liara is haha). All the other playthroughs I made sure to bring Liara to Noveria... This has got to be one of the most tragic scenes of the ME trilogy. ME1 wasn't the most well done, I think we can all agree, and if this had happened in ME2 or 3, it probably would have been a lot more heartbreaking cinematically-wise. But the concept of it... holy crap this kicks me in the feels.
Anyway, just wanted to share this little nugget that popped in my head.
