In the Jabba's Realm mission Execute the plan there is an interract where the rebels can choose to get 2 strain when declaring they are doing an interract to get an extra surge on their check.

Would Onar need to decide to get the strain before or after rolling for his Brute Strenght power?

If you look closely, you notice that the timing is not when performing or declaring an interact, it is before performing the attribute test.

So, to me it seems the order is:
1. Onar has an action left and decides to perform an interact. (Onar's brute strength interact)
2. Onar performs Brute Strength to see whether the interact takes an Interact action or not.
3. If failed, Onar spends the action.
4. Interact requires an attribute test. Onar chooses which skill to use.
5. Before performing the attribute test the mission rule triggers and allows Onar to suffer two strain to gain an additional surge for the test.

I could be wrong, but you would pay the 2 strain before Brute Strength.

His ability is when you perform the test... This would be after declaring that you are going to perform a test.

When it happened last night we paid before Brute Strenght but I thought it was the other way around myself, it hindered us but didnt end up mattering a lot in the outcome of the mission.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I wish that mission was better balanced!

Also, side question: If the strain was taken when you declare the interact, would that be before Brute Strenght?

Actually, I can't really think why the order would matter, unless Onar is both wounded and bleeding.

See the thread I linked. There are some good thoughts about what happens with Brute Strength. (Probably: Yes.)
