The planet of Illium is governed by a Council who turns a blind eye toward minor criminal activities. One of the more disturbing practices here on Illium is the trading of indentured servants. Shepard insists it's slavery, but colonists of Illium prefer the softer moniker of indentured servants and insist that this contracted servitude is entirely voluntary. Hm…
Blue Rose of IlliumReward: XP, store discount
The operator of the kiosk called Memories of Illium has been bitted by the love bug, but finds herself uncertain of what she wants out of her relationship with the krogan Romeo. While her boyfriend woos her with his lyrical abilities, you can guide her through her confused emotions. Ultimately, her final decision is dictated by your response to her woes. You can tell her to run back into his open arms because, clearly, he's just crazy (literally) about her, resulting in Paragon points. Or, tell her to ditch the guy for Renegade points. The asari thanks you for advice--whatever it was--and gives you a store discount.
Indentured ServiceReward: XP, credits
One of the patrons that you can approach in the Eternity Bar are an asari and quarian pairing bickering over something. Speak to them to learn a little about what the problem may be. It seems the broker cannot seem to get Synthetic Insights interested in purchasing the skilled quarian engineer, and this presents a major problem for the duo. This situation can be addressed in one of two ways: either talk to the Synthetic Insights representative (standing in the far back of the club) or perform some forceful persuasion on the asari broker. If you so choose to speak with the Synthetic Insights rep, you can go from either a Paragon or Renegade angle to achieve the same result.
Lost Locket FoundReward: XP, credits
Refer to the walkthrough for Miranda's mission on Illium for the location of this locket. Basically, going through this mission is the only way to recover this item. The owner of this locket is the asari standing by the viewpoint near the entrance to the trading floor. Her eyes fill with tears and heart sings with joy when you return her lost locket. But this bimbo is a bit of a cheapskate and only rewards you with a measly 500 credits.
Medical ScansReward: XP
In the transportation hub of Nos Astra, you can approach a colonist sitting on the bench in front of the police department. She knows of your great deeds on Feros and would like you to help her out (who doesn't?) in this little problem. She is a participant of medical testing that can be deemed unethical and downright wrong, so she wants out. The first step to take in freeing her is to speak with the Baria representative. She listens to reason and can be convinced to cancel the program, but she can also be egged on, obviously resulting in Renegade points. Return to the colonist to break the news.
Salarian Family DataReward: XP, credits
During the recruitment of Thane on Illium, you will find a datapad for someone back on Nos Astra. Go seek out a salarian in the shipping department of Nos Astra to find the proper recipient.
Smuggling EvidenceReward: XP, credits
Recruiting Samara gets you entangled in an unsolved case, and following the walkthrough leads you straight to the incriminating evidence the authorities need, a shipping manifest. This shipping manifest is the thing to possibly put Pitne For, a volus whose business involves the transferring of illicit drugs, behind bars. However, it's really up to you who you ultimately want to give the manifest to: Pitne For or Anaya. The former nets you Renegade points and lets the despicable volus walk freely. Turning in the manifest to the detective seals Pitne For's fate and garners Paragon points. Either choice you make you get credits.
Stolen Goods FoundReward: XP, credits
During the earlier bits of recruiting the justicar and after being let into the crime scene, examine the terminal behind the two guards to find a manifest that talks about someone named Thrax. You don't know who this entity quite is at the moment, but should you decide to relay the data, a messenger appears before you the next time you visit Illium to convey Thrax's thanks in helping him. As usual, the choice is yours and yours only.
The ObserverReward: XP, credits
Your very first trip to Illium gives you a special reunion with one of your old crew members, Liara. She is an information specialist. She goes through great pains in her extensive information highway to glean tidbits of information that most people are not privy to. Since you're here and she knows you're trustworthy, Liara asks of a favor of you, although she doesn't wish to expand upon the mission details except what's required of you. Note that this is shady stuff, so be ready to bear the full brunt of Renegade points if you see this first portion to completion.
First, you must locate security terminals in the transportation department. Hack the terminal to begin a countdown, at which point you must find the mirror terminal connected to it and hack it as well. It is the mirror terminal that reveals Liara's prized information. There are a total of three terminals, and their locations are as follows: behind the weapons kiosk, adjacent the weapons kiosk, and near the transportation area entrance.
When you return to Liara, she lets you set on foot in her information circle. Apparently, Liara wants to assert her dominance on Illium, and her direct competition is an influential figure known as the Shadow Broker. You may or may not be immediately set out to finish the second leg of this mission; you may need to return to Liara at a later time for her to open up the opportunity. The next part asks you to do dig up some dirt on the Observer by going to five terminals on the trading floor and hacking them. Fortunately, there's no imposed time limit for hacking all five terminals. Each terminal gives some info on the Observer's potential identity.
Upon hacking the fifth terminal, Liara contacts you, and now you must tell her who to kill. Renegade points continue to rack up if you incorrectly identify the Observer. For Paragon points, tell her that the target is none of the supposed targets and that the real target is someone that she least suspects. With all said and done, the mission wraps up.
