The Chenjesu aren't the Taalo. Commander Hayes talks about a Chenjesu researching the Taalo but couldn't because of the Androsynth being there.

Even if you are correct (maybe my memory is not perfect), and the Cheesejesu are not the desendants of the Taalo, then if they were trying to research them in Androsynth space, that ALSO proves that the Taalo were native to this side of the galaxy, and that the first doctrinal war was fought on this side, and therefore there is an unaccounted for "middle" doctrinal war on the other side of the galaxy.

The Chenjesu are the modern descendants of the Taalo.  Both the Korh-Ah and and Melnorme say that the Taalo were crystaline.  Therefore they knew the Ur-Quan for a long time.  Unfortunately had they stuck around the 1st doctrinal war for like 15 more minutes, they'd know they UrQuan had the Sa-Matra, and perhaps wouldn't have been so badly whipped during SC1.
The Chenjesu are NOT the Taalo. The Taalo were wiped out (ask the ORz about that) by the slaves in trhe Dnyarri empire. And if they knew about the Sa-Matra, they would have fled this region of space to avoid being annihilated in combat.

That doesn't prove much. The sentient milieu was so big that they were spanning most of this galaxy (ask your favourite Trademaster, he'll be glad to sell the information). And the _only_ race from this region of space were the Taalo.

If the Sentient Milieu was that big, why were there so few races in it?  In just this quadrant of space, there are god-knows-how-many races, and the Kohr-Ah talk about exterminating thousands of them.  If the Milieu was so widespread as to reach from one side of the galaxy to the other, why is it that it only contained seven races?

Possible conclusions:

--The Sentient Milieu was very picky about who they accepted.  (If so, how did the Ur-Quan get in?)

--Since the days of the Milieu, a great many more races have taken to the stars, such as the Earthlings and Shofixti.

--The Sentient Milieu was located mostly in this region of space, which would cause a mysterious "missing" doctrinal war at the opposite side of the galaxy--at least presuming the Ur-Quan and Kohr-Ah hadn't missed each other entirely.

--The Taalo were actually NOT native to this region of space.  If I recall correctly, only the Orz give any suggestion that the Taalo homeworld is here--and they call it the Taalo *playground*.  The Orz also refer to the Taalo in the present tense.  Perhaps this is not where the Taalo came from, but where they fled to?

It may be that the Kohr-Ah were counting non-sentient races in the thousands. Though if they are, then the captain is probably responsible for more extinctions than the Kohr-Ah, what with the Melnorme bio-hunting.

Ask the melnorme. There were hundreds to thounsands of worlds and races in the Milieu. There were only seven races known to all members. (Like StarTrek: who knows all races of the Federation? Most know only the Vulcanians, the Humans plus 2 to 3 other races.)

Your melnorme trade master sold you this information as well....
