Normandy Crash Site (Assignments) Walkthrough

There is no preparation for this Assignment nor are any hostiles present. Travel to Alchera in the Amada System within the Omega Nebula cluster and once you land, you'll notice this is a solo Assignment

While you are exploring the map, you will experience different flashbacks of the original Normandy according to which areas of the wreckage you are walking through. You can also find dog tags, which will appear as shining objects in the distance and are relatively hard to miss, four of them can be found in crates around the map. There are 20 dog tags in total. Four of them are inside crates that have to be broken in order to retrieve them.

You can find Navigator Pressly's datapad detailing how his view on aliens changed thanks to the diverse crew of the Normandy and Commander Shepard's lost N7 helmet.
