Mass Effect 1 doesn’t have loyalty missions in the same way that Mass Effect 2 offers them. That said, it does have special personal assignments that are similar. Tali, like Wrex and Garrus, has an assignment that Shepard can take on if they choose, however, it’s completely optional and missable. Here’s what you need to know about how to start Tali’s personal assignment mission, Tali and the Geth, to complete her Pilgrimage.
How to Start & Complete Tali Pilgrimage Mission in Mass Effect 1
Unlike the missions for Wrex and Garrus, Tali’s personal mission assignment isn’t tied to speaking with her after missions. It’s actually sort of hidden within an otherwise normal assignment that doesn’t initially appear connected to Tali.
UNC: Geth Incursions Assignment
To start and complete Tali’s pilgrimage mission, you need to first pick up and complete the assignment UNC: Geth Incursions. The easiest way to do this is by traveling to the Armstrong Nebula via the Galaxy Map. Once you do that you’ll get a transmission from Admiral Hackett and you’re free to get started on it.
It’s a rather straightforward assignment. Travel to the below systems and planets, and clear out the Geth outposts located there.

After that, you’ll receive an additional Outpost to clear out on Solcrum within the Grissom system. In the outpost, in a room, there will be a data terminal where you can collect Geth Data. This will start the assignment Tali and the Geth.

After you’ve done that, all you need to do is return to Tali on your ship and there will be an option to hand the data over to her.
You can refuse and get some renegade points if you want (although I question why you went through all this then if you were going to pick this). Or, you can give it to her, get some Paragon points instead, and have her thanks as she will use this as a gift for her Pilgrimage.
If you complete this later on, in Mass Effect 2, if you handed over the Geth Data, it will lead to a smoother and more pleasant reunion of the two when they first meet. It’s not a huge deal, but if you like Tali and want her to like your Shepard more to get some friendlier dialog, go ahead and turn it over.
That’s all you need to know about how to start Tali’s personal assignment mission, Tali and the Geth, and complete her Pilgrimage in Mass Effect 1. For more tips, tricks and FAQs answered be sure to check out our wiki guide that is filled with helpful guides.
