Easter Eggs

Legion as Cerberus Assassin

You must import a Mass Effect 2 save in which you turned Legion over to Cerberus. In Priority: Cerberus Headquarters as you fight through the Reaper Heart/Brain room you'll come across a number of Cerberus Nemesis and a Geth named "Legion Assassin" that has the same appearance as Legion.

Jack as a Phantom

You must import a Mass Effect 2 save with Jack alive for this Easter Egg. If you don't rescue Jack in Grissom Academy: Emergency Evacuation before Priority: Citadel 2 she will appear as a Phantom in Priority: Cerberus Headquarters. The lifebar for a Phantom will simply be renamed "Jack" and she will say "I will destroy you!"

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Reference

On the side-quest where you evacuate some Cerberus scientists, the AA-Turrets fire a path for the evac-shuttle through enemy fighters, then a voice announces, that the first evac-shuttle has sucessfully started. This is followed by a cheer of the remaining crew, like in the Hoth scene in Star Wars V.

Space Hamster

You can actually recover your space hamster from Mass Effect 2. Head to Engineering on the Normandy and go to the lowest level via the stairs. You may hear some squeaking here. If you are fast, you can catch your space hamster for your quarters. Squeak!
