How to Romance Tali’Zorah vas Neema in Mass Effect LE

Commander Shepard has their pick of the squad members on the Normandy, but romancing each one requires a certain amount of time invested. For Tali, that means completing her loyalty mission: Treason. Tali's been accused of treason and must face the charges at the Migrant Fleet's Admiralty Board flotilla.

Once you've charmed or intimidated your way through the trial, then fought your way through the geth you meet along the way, you'll collect the evidence you need to clear Tali's name. Tali will ask you not to use the evidence, as it implicates her father. When you return to the Rayya, you'll need to charm or intimidate once more by pointing to Tali's past as proof of her loyalty. If you succeed, you'll gain Tali's loyalty.

Alternatively, if you spoke to the Admirals about their motivations, Veetor and Kal'Reegar are both present, and you previously asked the two of them for help before leaving for the Alarei, you can rally the crowd and have them speak on Tali's behalf. This also earns her loyalty.

Finally, you can lie and hide the evidence but fail to exonerate Tali. This will earn you her loyalty even though she will be exiled and given six hours to leave.

Once you've completed the mission and earned Tali's loyalty, your next conversation will offer you the option to talk about her. You'll then get the chance to express your interest in her, beginning the romance.
