Hello, all..sorry to have been a way for so long..health issues prevailed...
Although I may stating the obvious..." Iblis" portrayed by Patrick McNee/Imperious Leader's voice..in Islamic legend, Iblis is the name of Satan, the Devil....how I wish this story line would have been more explored...good vs evil, and biblical, very thought out writing research.

Peter Berkos was the sound effects editor on the Battlestar Galactica 1978 series. In 2004 Peter Berkos was awarded a lifetime achievement Oscar for his outstanding career in sound editing. For Battlestar Galactica he was responsible for the sound effects of the laser guns, the barking of Muffit and of course the distinctive voice of the Cylons. He was interviewed some years back about his career and how the sounds on Battlestar Galactica were created.: "Battlestar Galactica fell into my…Continue

I wonder if the Saturday Night Live characters "The Coneheads" inspired the look of Lucifer (Cylon IL series).
Really..think about it. :)

Hey,gang.Ok, here's my satire on how BSG and Knight Rider tie in. (Indulge me) In the Galactica 1980 episodes "The Night the Cylons Landed" A Cylon Centurion and a humanoid Cylon plummet from the top of a radio tower into a dumpster.The dumpster is collected and brought to a waste recycling plant owned by Wilfred Knight. After the Cylons are discovered, they are reversed engineered by Knight into the form of a car,which he names KITT.The most recognizable features of the alien technology…Continue
Some interesting trivia tidbits:

Another interesting entity in the BSG series for me was Lucifer, the IL series Cylon droid and futuristic mechanical,not-to -be trusted henchman to The Imperious Leader and Baltar.So much detail and thought was put into this "background" character. .His head(looked like a big Christmas tree bulb) was an amazing art work of electronics and lighting( even if the body was covered up in robe attire..maybe that's where the budget maxed out!) Wonderful , eloquent, conniving, fork-tounged voice…Continue

I must admit, the most intriguing character to me is the Imperious Leader.Such a mysterious, dark, tantilyzing character in the Battle Star Galactica anthology. From what I understand,he is a machine entity created by the Cylons in the image of the extinct Cylon race of reptilian creatures. Magnificent voice courtesy of Patrick McNee...such a melodic,hyptnotic, calming voice that commands attention, but leaves you unaware of the true evil that is it's source..used to give me goosebumps just…Continue
Hello, all! I'm trying to remember a tv special version of Battle Star Galactica, back in the late seventies or early eighties(?).It started with a NASA astronaut doing a spacewalk and catching a book that was floating in space. As it was opened, it revealed art drawings of the reptilian Cylons and Lorne Greene's voice over telling the story of the creation of the machine Cylons and the Imperious Leader..the rebellion of the machines.....I can't remember much more than that, I believe it…Continue
