D'Anna (LUCY LAWLESS) The self-appointed ringleader of the
Cylons—who are battling for control over the human resistance
fighters—is in for a rough go this season when she threatens her
group's unity. "I think of D'Anna as the malevolent mother," says
Lawless, who will appear in 10 episodes. "She's the kind of woman
who loves to screw with her children's minds. She even scares me!"
2 Brother Cavil (dean stockwell) This season, one Cavil will cruelly
interrogate Tigh (Michael Hogan), just as another is having sex with
Tigh's wife, Ellen (Kate Vernon). "Cavil will be instrumental in
setting up a human police force that isn't what it seems," says exec
producer David Eick. "He's the Heinrich Himmler of the Cylons."
3 Sharon (GRACE PARK) The most conflicted of the Cylons, Sharon is
still trusted by Admiral Adama (Edward James Olmos). He'll even make
her an officer, which may backfire. She thinks her half-human,
half-Cylon baby died last season when, in fact, the child was stolen
and hidden by the humans. "Trust me," says Park, "when Sharon finds
out her baby is alive, some s— is gonna go down!"
4 Simon (RICK WORTHY) He was the Cylon doctor who researched human
reproduction—until he got a shard in the jugular from his guinea
pig, Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff). "Now Simon will be part of a Cylon
round-table council that becomes very intense and political," Worthy
says. "There's a terrific scene where we force President Baltar
James Callis] to sign a document or die. It's extreme."
5 Six (TRICIA HELFER) After snapping a baby's neck in the Galactica
miniseries, this platinum bombshell seemed the most dangerous of
Cylons—or is she? "We'll see her siding with the Cylons on some
issues and with the humans on others," Heifer says. "She doesn't
quite know which way to go." This 'bot might even have a heart: When
Baltar is held hostage and tortured, Six will take pity and mentally
"pleasure" him to ease his pain. In fact, nudity and free love are
rampant on the Cylon base ship. "We reveal a very sensual, libertine
permissiveness among the Cylons," says exec producer Ron Moore.
There's even a rumor that we'll see some three-way Cylon sex. "Oh,
that's way more than a rumor," Moore promises.
6 Doral (MATTHEW BENNETT) Never trust a flack. Doral was first seen
aboard Galactica as a chipper PR exec before his true Cylon nature
was revealed. "He seems to be the reasonable Cylon, but when we get
into the new season he's anything but," Eick says. "A key character
will suffer a debilitating injury and we find out Doral inflicted
it. He's definitely one of the heavies."
7 Leoben(CALLUM KEITH RENNIE) The first human-looking Cylon to be
discovered, Leoben was searching for Starbuck last season and now we
know why: "He's in love with her and tries to win her over by taking
Rennie says. "It's his own kind of creative love." Leoben sets up
the feisty flygirl in an apartment, which she turns into
home-sweet-homicide. "Leoben dies...a lot," Rennie reports. "But
like a cockroach, you can't get rid of him."
