The alliance is very similar to the 'United Federation of Planets', with inter-galactic multiculturalism being rife, despite feelings between different races never seeming altogether positive. Space exploration with the ships, and most of the 'good' characters being prominent members of the crew. Reaper ships in the third game are revered much like the Borg in Star Trek.
As I say, Mass Effect is a really good mix of both Star Trek and Star Wars, like a perfect middle ground!
