Cylons - A remnants of a race of reptilian creatures featured on the  sci-fi series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA /ABC/1978-80.

Imperious Leader of the Cylon Empire

The Cylon Centurions (Model 0005) were the robotic soldiers of a reptilian galactic civilization (who had since died off) whose main directive was "the final annihilation of the life form known as man."

"They're machines created by living creatures a long, long time ago...a race of reptiles called Cylons. After a while the Cylons discovered humans were the most practical form of creature in this system. So they copied our bodies, but they built them bigger and stronger than we are. And they can exchange parts so they can live forever...There are no more real Cylons. They died off thousands of yahrens ago, leaving behind a race of super-machines, but we still call them Cylons." -- Apollo

Under the direction of the mechanical Imperious Leader, a large three-brained reptilian, (the receptacle of all Cylon knowledge), the Cylons used their Centurion Warriors to attack a twelve-planet solar system and systematically exterminated its humanoid inhabitants. The Centurion catchphrase is "By your command!"


The relentless Centurions then pursued the few fleeing survivors through space in an attempt to destroy them all. See also "Lucifer the Robot"

In the 2004 remake of the series, the Cylons were originally robotic workers and solders created by the Twelve Colonies of Kobol. But the robots rebelled against mankind and then went into isolation. After forty the Cylons reemerged (evolved) through bioengineering means as humanoids - now indistinguishable from real humans.

With a new mission, they hunted down their creators (humans) because they consider them to be flawed creations of God and therefore not deserving of survival.

Number Six: We're the children of humanity. That makes them our parents in a sense.
Aaron Doral: True, but parents have to die. It's the only way children can come into their own.

The humanoid Cylons came in twelve models. They have super strength, the ability to interface into a computer system, can download their consciousness to another body at the time of death, and can be programmed with false memories as "sleeper" agents to infiltrate human communities.
