With the release of Mass Effect Legendary Edition for PC and consoles, new players and veterans can now experience the sci-fi trilogy with 4K visuals and improved framerates. The core of all three games does remain the same, though, which means that new players may get confused by some of the more obtuse mechanics in the game. Here’s how to go back to the Normandy in Mass Effect 1.
The Normandy is the ship that Shepard commands in all three games, and it’s also where you get to talk to your squadmates one on one, and plan where to go next for your missions. However, whenever you do disembark on a planet, the game never really explains to you how you can get back to your ship.
Going Back to the Normandy in Mass Effect 1
You’ll usually be transported back to the Normandy automatically after completing a mission, but if you want to leave halfway, there’s a way to do so as well.
While on a planet surface, enter the Mako and press the Square button, or X if you’re on Xbox One. An onscreen prompt will pop up asking if you want to return to the Normandy, simply confirm your selection and you’ll be transported back to your ship, ready to depart to another planet.
If you’re in the Citadel, head to the C-Sec Academy under Wards locations by using the fast transit system, and take the central elevator up to the docking bay. You’ll find the Normandy docked there, and you can enter from the airlock.
That’s all you need to know about how to go back to the Normandy in Mass Effect 1. Be sure to check our guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
