    In the process of getting the last of the achievements I got the Ashley (Soldier) ally achievement starting a new game before ever doing Noveria, Vermire, Ilos, Bring Down the Sky and about 12 of the side missions. So basically I did Pinnacle Station, Feros, Therum, and about 41 side quests and got the achievement for Soldier Ally. That means even for the Asari Ally there is a lot of leeway to get it if you're willing to do the side quests.
    I may very well be the oldest member of the site, but I am far from the dumbest :)
