When Galen Tyrol was the president of the workers’ union, he gave the famous Mario Savio “Bodies upon the gears” speech. That was pretty exciting.
I also like the short little speech Saul Tigh gives when he finds out he’s a cylon:
“My name is Saul Tigh. I am an officer in the Colonial Fleet. Whatever else I am, whatever else it means, that’s the man I want to be. And if I die today, that’s the man I’ll be.”
I love all of them. Uh, I guess my ABSOLUTE favourite cylon is either Saul Tigh or Galen Tyrol, just because they have the whole “be true to yourself” thing down pretty solid.
I also love Athena, but I don’t really like the other Eights. Actually, I don’t know if I love Athena as much as I just love watching her be accepted by the humans, be loved by Helo, and be a pilot like she was always meant to be.
I also love the FINAL CYLON - shhh, don’t say her name, my boyfriend hasn’t seen it and doesn’t know anything other than that she’s a woman - just because she makes for such a badass and WHOA HOW EVEN cylon.
And wouldn’tcha know it, there are no pictures on the internet of just the three of them, Galen, Saul, and Sharon, together. Shrug. Here’s a picture of a cylon centurion instead. We just got to the episode where the Sixes gave them the gift of reason and some serious cylon schism shit is about to go down. Say THAT five time fast.
