Fist shows up on Omega if you let him live. Helena Blake does as well, if you convince her to give up crime. I don't know what happens if you let her keep her gang.

The Corporal Toombs quest scientist is mentioned in the news as having been granted immunity or something like that, if he lives.

Alright, here's some stuff from what I remember in the first one that carried over to the second:

(Spoilers in here, somewhat.)



Being "rich" gives you an extra 100,000 Credits at the start of the game.

Finding lots of resource nodes in the first one gives you a boost to starter resources in this one.

Sparing Helena Blake and pointing her on the "righteous path" lets you run into her working as a charity worker on Omega, where she thanks you for turning her life around.

Sparing the Rachni queen on Noveria lets you run into an Asari who gives you a message about how she plans on keeping her children good and will "help you fight the darkness that spoiled her ancestors' songs."

Not killing Wrex on... Virmire, I think? He becomes leader of Clan Urdnot, who works to unite the Krogan clans on their home planet.

Whoever died on Virmire will still be dead-dead, no zombies or anything from them. The survivor you chose will meet up with you later on in the game with less than desirable results. Whoever died will, I think, have a scholarship set up in their name. For me, Kaiden died so a scholarship was set up to help biotic potential kids get into the Alliance's biotic training school.

If you did the Bring Down the Sky thing and saved the humans, I believe there will be a Galaxy News report about them being saved. Since I couldn't do it my first run through ME1 as I was beyond that point when I got it, they just hold a candlelight vigil in remembrance of those that died.

If you worked things out between the Biotic terrorists and the senator(?) that was held hostage in ME1, you'll find he went through with his reparations plan for L2 biotics, and there was much rejoice.

If you spared the Asari who was working with the creature on Feros, she will meet you on the Citadel and will need your help with another problem. Needless to say, she's feeling a little green around the tentacles.

If you saved the Council, they will thank you for that. Also, if you made Anderson the chairman for humanity, he'll be there still.

There's plenty of other little side quests that crop up and people shoot you emails from the results of them in the first one, but beyond that and maybe a few Galaxy News stories, not too much else is in there that I can think of.
