All Kill Delgado Choices and Consequences

At several points during the Echoes of the Past sidequest, Mathis will propose that you take out Delgado when he's at his most vulnerable.

Even if you accept his plan to betray him, you actually can't assassinate Delgado since Delgado is not actually present after Mathis proposes his plan, and Mathis will ask you to forget about the assassination attempt entirely.

Your choice whether to accept or reject his plan, however, will affect your dialogue options for a choice later in the mission.

Tell the Truth or Lie About Mathis' Performance

Choice Consequences
"I found information about Kryx's Legacy, no thanks to Mathis who barely lifted a finger to help." Mathis is kicked out of the Crimson Fleet, and will hunt you down during a random encounter when traveling across systems.
"Thanks to Mathis' help, we found some information about Kryx's Legacy." Mathis will remain part of the Crimson Fleet and will be on good terms with you.
