Mass Effect Actor Reacts To Mysterious Monolith Discoveries
There are a lot of mysterious things in this world, whether its amazing structures like the ancient Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Egypt, the unknown depths of the ocean, or other unexplainable phenomena. Some peculiar triangular prism-shaped monoliths were recently discovered halfway across the world from each other, though who put them there remains a mystery. Now, the strange pillars have caught the attention of Mass Effect’s Commander Shepard, who warns of a possible alien threat (the Council probably won’t listen).
Earlier this year a peculiar monolith shaped like a triangular prism was discovered by Utah state biologists in a remote part of northern San Juan County. While the structure has been since taken down by unknown persons, the pillar received quite a bit of attention from many fandoms across the globe for its alien appearance. Soon after another mysterious monolith was discovered, this time in a protected area of an archaeological dig site in Romania. A recent Tweet surfaced from Commander Shepard’s voice actor Mark Meer who jokingly states that these pillars could only be the work of Protheans. The first Mass Effect game saw some triangular pillars of paleo-technology known as Prothean Beacons. It might be a bit of a stretch, but, the last time Commander Shepard warned humanity of an alien threat he was ignored, and we all know what happened from there.
Okay… so definitely Protheans, then.#MassEffect

Searching for anything related to the Protheans or even Mass Effect itself on Twitter sees many fans all convinced that it has to be a sign that Reapers are coming. Whether the discovery of these peculiar pillars are the work of aliens like in Mass Effect, 2001: A Space Odyssey, EVE Online, Elite Dangerous, or perhaps just something more human in origin remains to be seen.
