Battlestar Galactica (2003)
The Cylons, who developed human-form models, launch a massive attack against the humans and The Twelve Colonies are destroyed. Commander Adama of the BSG and President Laura lead 47,000 survivors on a desperate search for the fabled 13th Colony - Earth. With a focus on tough political, philosophical and religious issues, this intense tale has realistic and not always perfect characters.
The current mainstay of Cylon ground forces, the modern Centurion is a taller, swifter and more agile unit than the Model 0005. Its "fingers" serve as edged weapons in close-quarters combat, and can retract to make way for projectile weapons built into its forearms.
There are apparently two armor configurations - the Centurions encountered by Lt. Karl Agathon on occupied Caprica were susceptible to normal small-arms fire, while a boarding party dispatched to Galactica in a boarding action could only be impeded by explosive rounds (Valley of Darkness).
While the earlier Centurion models presumably took a leadership role in their war against the Colonials, modern Centurions appear completely mute and are subservient to the human models. To prevent an uprising of their own, the human models did not design the modern Centurion with any sentience.
