We do learn one other very interesting thing from Quria, Blade Transform’s demise: The Vex were in some way or another present around the same time that the Hive destroyed the Ecumene many thousands of years prior. The simulated Aurash knew to question Oryx about his sisters Sathona and Xi Ro because the Vex learned about them from the intelligence given to the Ecumene by Taox…It makes you wonder where else have the Vex been present and what else they might know.

Since the cards don't reference it directly, I'm not sure this assumption is necessarily correct. Perhaps the Vex were able to learn enough about Oryx during their time on Oryx's ship in the first place or they learned about Oryx's past in some other way?

Specifically XLIII: End of Failed Timeline says:

Quria samples the Taox intelligence retrieved from the Ecumene gate. There are useful names. It feeds them to the simulation.

I take this to mean the Vex had one or more of their gates within the Ecumene's area of space. It is true though that we don't know when the Vex build these gates.

Could the Vex have been mostly dormant burrowed into an Ecumene world before the Hive arrived like they were / are on Venus? Could they have observed the Hive / Ecumene war from somewhere safely far away? Could they have moved into the Ecumene's area of space later and found left over intel long after the Hive had moved on?

We don't know when the info came from but the where seems pretty clear, at least.
