I'm another that destroyed the base. Just felt wrong giving it to the Illusive Man ... Sure he'll use it to help humans ... but whose to stop him from going to far if he has that technology ? ... better off blowin it up ...

Well I saved the Rachnai in the first one and kept Wrex as the leader of the Krogan and kept the council intact and kept Tali as a possible leader of the Floatila and saved the Genophage cure and made the geth all anti-reaper.

So I kept the collector station aswell so I have everything to fight the reapers in the Mass Effect 3. Aswell as all the crew alive I think that is the best way to start the 3rd game when it comes out.

I thought it would be best to get every possible resource to fight the thousands of reapers you saw at the end

You may think you have the best way to start ME3 now... but you have to know BioWare isn't gonna make it that easy

Well, there's validity to both sides.

The Reapers are significantly advanced, technologically, as compared to the current species in the galaxy. Moreover, all of the species in the galaxy are based around Reaper technology (the mass relays). Logic suggests that to even have a fighting chance against an armada of sentient dreadnoughts, you're going to need to use their own technology against them.

All that being said, you're handing over perhaps the greatest treasure trove of technology in the galaxy to an organization bent on the ascension of humanity at any cost. Not only that, but this is technology fueled by the dead. It's horrific.

So, the question BioWare has imposed upon us as players is a question of humanity; are we willing to sell our souls to save ourselves, or do we believe that we can find a better way?

As for me, I decided to destroy it. True power is earned, not given or taken.

Too true! Puts perfectly into words what my thought process was when I destroyed the base ... there will be another *better* way to beat them ...

I chose to destroy the base, However on my second playthrough I will hand it over for the diversity factor, it is afterall only a game.

I believe you're correct to a point - the thing is, a) It's your only realistic chance to defeat the Reapers, as you say - so far you've been unbelievably lucky(!) and b) maybe there's a way that you can get the technology to all the major races, and NOT just hand it to Cerberus on a platter, so to speak.

While saying true power is earned, not given or taken, sounds nice... that's not always necessarily true - look at the children of any extremely wealthy parents - in some countries that means they can even torture and kill the poor, on video, and have it dismissed in the courts (because he was high on drugs, he's not responsible for his actions)

Realistically, the only hope we'd have is to save and exploit the technology (Ideally give it to all the major races) - but as others have already said... It is just a game, so it's possible we could defeat the Reapers without that tech.

Cheers
