Yeah, sure, the Normandy vs Harbinger... I know people had other endings in mind, but there's no way the Normandy could take down a Reaper by herself. I was happier seeing Harbinger massacring everyone during the run to the Conduit and leaving Shepard one step to the death. Man, it was so dark it gave me shivers. I'm glad Bioware kept the Reapers threatening to the end.

It's a very well done wallpaper though ;)

The Thanix Cannon of the Normandy can take out a Collector Ship in two shots and a collector ship is barely smaller than a full-sized reaper:

Plus, the Normandy is far faster and more agile which means that it can fly circles around Harbinger in the time that it would take him to actually catch the Normandy in it's sights.

And finally, Joker is not only the best pilot in the Alliance, but he's had plenty of experience with heavy fights including the battle with Sovereign where he dealt the finishing blow.

Not saying that it would be easy, but the Normandy would be able to match against a Reaper.

It's true that the Collector ship is similar in size to a Reaper. But you're missing one major element about the Reapers: their shields. They can take all the shit you throw at them and they will keep moving towards you until you become fried goo. Many Alliance vessels had Thannix installed during the final space battle, yet the Reapers resisted that blow with no problem.
Maybe, but we can always of the death by a thousand cuts.

I love the Mass Effect series but I will admit that this idea for a final battle would have been a lot better for ME3. Herbinger felt so underused in the game yet he's mentioned threwout the whole game.
but remember, if your GR is high enough for the destroy ending, Shep just goes MIA, not KIA
