Nothing original. Another boring humanoid-like race. Sigh.
The Kett look like the Collectors.

The timeline for this game is not tagged with the first trilogy. If I am not wrong, based on the online materials, the Andromeda Initiative was launched a year after the Reaper attack on Earth. The humans could rebuild and construct the seed-ships so fast?

The more I read on the Andromeda timeline the more confused I am. Hahahaha... Maybe the story is set in an alternate universe.

you need to go back and watch the briefing.
it does tie in with the ME trilogy, at least up to ME2.

While Commander Shepard was fighting the Collectors in Mass Effect 2, the people of Earth decided to launch the Andromeda Initiative to colonize the Andromeda Galaxy.

So did some of the government officials believed that humanity would be doomed once the existence of the Reapers was confirmed by Commander Shepard? So the Andromeda Initiative was created secretly.

No don't think it was a secret. Not when it was an open recruitment with hundreds if not thousands of personnel involved. Plus construction of the Nexus and Arks cannot be kept secret for so long.

And I think the Andromeda Initiative started as far back as after ME1 and through MEs but launched post ME2. Timeline wise: between ME1 and ME2 is 2 years. And between ME2 and ME3 is 6 months. Probably all pushed by Shepard since he is in this trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZ7tGg_JIZg

Edit: the Andromeda Initiative launches just after the ME2 Arrival DLC conclusion - which is basically about the prelude to the Reaper Invasion in ME3.

So the Andromeda Initiative might be an emergency way of saving humanity and other alien races in the event that the Reapers could not be defeated and the Milky Way was purged of sentient life.

Commander Shepard really persuaded someone high-up to come up with the ambitious plan.
