Mass Effect: Andromeda Edit

Upon Hyperion's arrival in the Heleus Cluster, a violent collision with an energy cloud above Habitat 7 causes momentary loss of gravity and damage to ship systems. Sara's cryo pod is also damaged in the event, resulting in her reawakening being delayed as she is kept in an induced coma. After the mission on Eos, Dr. Harry Carlyle contacts her brother revealing that SAM has gained the ability to communicate with her via her implant. During the conversation depending on the player's decision, she can find out about the death of her father or be mislead that he is away.

Later on after the Salarian Ark has been found, she awakens from her coma. She is either happy to see her brother if told the truth about her father's fate or angry about being lied to. Despite wanting to get out of bed, she is forced to stay. Later on when Ryder discovers that their mother is still alive and in cryo sleep, Sara waits outside her pod. After conversing with SAM, the duo decide to keep their mother in cryo until they can discover a cure to heal her.

The Archon eventually invades Ark Hyperion, and disables SAM from Ryder. SAM is able to contact Sara and requests that she reestablish the link between him and Ryder because the severing of their connection will kill Ryder. She is successful but is taken captive. She is then tortured by the Archon, who uses her as a pain buffer so that he can access the Remnant tech through her SAM implant. She is able to give her brother a clear path to her, but is unable to stop the Archon from getting control of the systems. She gives her brother help by giving him navpoints to disable the system. Ryder is successful and frees Sara and Sara is brought to Dr. Lexi T'Perro, who helps her heal. She awakens a week later with her brother watching over her. When he is requested by the Nexus Leaders she tells him to go so she can rest.
