Looks like a mistake on the show - the woman now representing Tauron (and replacing Speaking Delegate #2, wich Reza Chronides present) replaced Chronides (who previously appeared alongside Speaking Delegate #2) in "Guess What's Coming to Dinner?" and "Sine Qua Non", apparently representing two different colonies on two different occasions. Since she replaces Delegate #2 now, is it OK to assume that Delegate #2 was the representative of Tauron in the episodes she appeared in?

Chronides' colony has not been identified yet (aside from a prop mistake in "Disquiet", where she has a Saggitaron plaque, even though we Cantrell is identified as representing Saggitaron in dialogue). Ausir 14:23, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Yep. See Safiya Sanne. Sometimes the ship gets mixed up. :) --Spencerian 14:34, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
Hah, I just noticed that not only Chronides has the wrong plaque. Cantrell has a (barely visible) plaque with the symbol of Picon, while the Picon delegate has one (also barely visible) with the symbol of Aquaria. :) Looks like they only bothered to make the clearly visible ones match.

LOL, they did it again, now Veena Sood's delegate also replaced the Gemenon Delegate. :) Third colony in a row! Ausir 12:01, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Since Reza Chronides was in a different seat (near Cantrell, instead of near Zarek), it seems that the Quorum members do not have assigned seating, or that their seating can change between sessions. It seems we can't denote a delegate's colony just by where they're seated. Thus, it seems that "Quorum Delegate" should be known as "Tauron Delegate" since she identifies herself as so, and "Speaking Delegate #2" should go back to her original designation. -- Monsieurxander 01:49, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Thing is, the "Quorum Delegate" replaced "Speaking Delegate #2" in "Disquiet", not just in terms of seating, but in terms of her being present instead of SD2 who is absent, just like she was present with Chronides being absent before, and the Gemenon Delegate now. If QD is meant to always represent Tauron, who's representing Gemenon in "The Oath", and who's representing whatever colony Chronides is from in "Dinner"? And who is representing Tauron in the episodes before she started appearing? (There are clearly always 12 delegates, each for one of the colonies).
Maybe QD is actually an official stand-in that votes in the name of whatever delegate can't be present during a session? Also, the plaque in front of her in "The Oath" does have the Gemenon symbol. Ausir 02:22, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
