This Really Happened

Elias received the following message:

From: Darcy ...
Date: October 30, 2006 9:48:58 AM PST
To: Elias ...
Subject: Cylon point of contention

I don't remember who was arguing which side, but I found a transcript, and it's just the centurions who can't distinguish the different models:

"Centurions can't distinguish [Sharon] from the other humanoid models. Did you know that? . . . 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. You can appreciate the irony."

Well, it seemed relevant, since we'd been discussing their putative hierarchy, or lack thereof. (Elias told me you'd posted the e-mail on your blog. I was amused.)

I'm always happy to research things like BSG instead of Latin and Greek. This is why Elias will finish grad school before I do. :)
