The Quorum of Twelve, also known as "The Council of Twelve" or "The Council," consists of politicians who gather together to make up the laws and practices of the Twelve Colonies of Man.
The Quorum consists of one representative from each colony and is presided over by a president.
During the last decades of the Twelve Colonies, President Adar oversaw the Quorum.
The Quorum of Twelve assembles for one final time aboard President Adar's battlestar, Atlantia, to celebrate the forthcoming armistice. In attendance are Baltar, liaison between the Cylons and the Quorum, and Commander Adama and his aide de camp, Athena (Annihilation!).
