18. "RE: (frag) S5M3"
In response to message #16
 
   >Is it official, then, that said mod was some equivalent of Omega?

Neither Tali nor Mordin was entirely sure what it would do at the time, but it came up a couple of times in Correspondence that she doesn't seem to age. Mordin's starting point was the salarian "bootleg" version of Omega-2, which had to be considerably adjusted to have any effect on a quarian at all - so much so that even he wasn't sure how many of its functions survived the transcription process. Decades on, empirical evidence indicates that the answer is "most, if not all."

Interestingly, though Mordin was the lead researcher on the salarian Omega-2 project, he hasn't had the final version of the treatment himself. The preliminary model he used was a highly effective life extension, but - as he alludes to himself at one point in Star-Crossed - didn't address many of the cosmetic effects of aging, which is why he still looks quite elderly for a salarian. Of course, that may also be because he finds it useful to seem more decrepit than he is. In his old line of work, being underestimated often came in handy.
