The Plan

The Cylons were created by Man.
They Rebelled.
They Evolved.
They Look and Feel Human.
Some are programmed to think they are Human.
There are many copies.
And they have a Plan


The Plan is the glue that holds this story together. It is the Plan that presumably keeps the humans alive. As Adama has noted, they are outnumbered and vastly out-gunned. Without the Plan, there is no reason for the Cylons to allow the humans to remain alive. Maybe it's the child, maybe it's the gods, maybe it's Earth. Who knows. Whatever it is though, the Cylons need the humans for something.

So, why is it that they keep attacking? What would happen if the humans stopped defending themselves? Would the Cylons truly wipe out the fleet, and eradicate their creators? I'm starting to think maybe they wouldn't. I think the attacking is a form of pushing or motivating, but to what end, I do not know. Destination Earth? Maybe.

For the readers who are scratching their heads, Season One with the original miniseries is available now.

  1. OK, I am here as an official messenger of your blogees to say that your obsession with the Cylons borders on the psychotic. This is clearly more than a casual curiosity, professional help is warranted. More important, it detracts from why I am here:

    Vanilla = Good.
    Vancouver = Good.
    Carmel Apple= Good.
    Pepperoncini = Good.

    Cylons = Dorky.

    I do not want this place to become a (larger) congregation of nerds. I am unwilling to talk about how clerics cannot use bladed weapons or about the differences in arcana between illusionists, mages and wizards. There is no such thing as warp drive, Star Wars was a movie and no one ever, ever got laid in one of those shiny Cylon outfits (and you certainly will not be the first).

  3. SEE! THIS IS WHAT I MEAN! I COME FOR SOME DECENT WRITING ABOUT VANILLA AND YOU FREAKS HAVE TO TURN IT INTO SOME SORT OF CONVENTION. Gee, is William Shatner going to show up soon?

    Oh, and tom, you said

    The only thing I long for is to shove a twenty sided die up your cake hole. So I can do a Google search for geeky things rather than checking in your Dungeon Master's Guide, 3d.
