In a meeting to decide the name of the mission, Chen-tao suggested "Daedalus", having the starship F-304 Daedalus from the show Stargate: Atlantis in mind. After three rounds of voting, the name somehow survived and christened the mission. During the mission, Chen-tao participated in MC and occupied various functions, mainly LOGS. He also kept an HTML personal log available on C3-PO at 440. He was noted in the court-martial logs for having used important multimedia airwaves to presumably pass messages between Becca Kalinger and Christian Angel.
Chen-tao's callsign was given by Maclean Rouble shortly after a trip to the hair cutter; as he walked in the Spacesim Office Maclean pointed out how he looked like a certain character in Stargate: SG1 named Jonas Quinn. Jonas is now Chen-tao's callsign. His Catclan name is, for some obscure reason, Spartakat.
