Cylon Centurians - Chrome-plated robot warriors with scanning red eyes on the sci-fi series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA /ABC/1978-80.


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 Centurions 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, Commander William Adama (Edward James Olmos) spoke about the Cylons Centurions and their inability to harm their masters:

"They were deliberately programmed that way. The Cylons didn't want them becoming self-aware, suddenly resisting orders. They didn't want their own robotic rebellion on their hands. I can appreciate the irony."

Equipped with long, slender metallic fingers, the new and improved Centurions came with double barreled automatic weapons mounted on the end of each arm. The Centurions took their commands from humanoid Cylons who after forty years of isolation and evolution were now indistinguishable from real humans. See ALIENS: Cylons
