Joan Leyte is the Defense Minister for Caprica. Leyte attends an impressive demonstration of Daniel Graystone's Cylon, after which she tells him that Graystone Industries has been awarded a long-term contract.

She says they never seriously considered the Vergis Corporation for the contract because Tomas Vergis is Tauron and "deceit is in their DNA." ("Pilot")


  • She was presumably promoted to Defense Minister after the death of Defense Minister Val Chambers. ("Pilot")
