Earth is under attack by a monstrous race of gigantic living ships known as the Reapers. Even if Commander Shepard could unite all surviving species in the galaxy, only a miracle could save them. Then again, Shepard did come back from the dead.

At the last part of the Leviatan DLC, where Sheppard and his team are crash-landing on a derelict ship in the sea-world it's stated that many of them look very old.

It is good to know that Jack has thus far survived the Reaper invasion. I have amusing memories of her attempt to insert additions into my reports to the Illusive Man. Most of them centered around inappropriate uses of the word "cockpit."
