How do we know they didn't age? It seems to me that Cavil's motivations for kidnapping Hera fall apart if his species is not facing extinction by natural causes in short order.
People die from accidents, diseases and stuff all the time. At some point there simply won't be anybody left, even without dying of natural causes.

I'd also like to imagine, that the redstripe centurions went after the 145's after they were set free and wiped them out.
After all, it wasn't the Humans who had enslaved them but Cavil.
The Colonials enslaved the old branch of Centurions, not the new and improved one.

I'm still wondering what it was about the skinjobs that qualified them to be robots in the first place.

The 7 models had synthetic bodies that didn't age- the five were just more advanced.

My guess is that, like sleep, aging is something that the cylons are capable of turning on and off, though perhaps not without effort (it took Cavil at least ten years to figure out how to turn sleep off, after all).

As for Cavil being concerned with extinction, that doesn't necessarily mean that it was going to happen in the foreseeable future. Without resurrection or reproduction, it means that there's no where for the population to go from down. It doesn't matter if cylons are only going to die from accident, illness, or a chance encounter with the Galactica, eventually, they'll all have a moment of bad luck. No matter if one cylon dies every day or one cylon dies every decade, eventually, the population will hit zero.

And we can safely extrapolate that the Cylon population took a bit of a hit in the Civil War. Except for the rebel baseship, every Two, Three, Six, and Eight in all of cylondom was apparently killed or boxed. Now, either it was just the loss of half their fleet in ambushes, or some of Natalie's faction went down with a fight, but Cavil's forces weren't nearly as strong as the Cylon fleet had been before the war. Afterward we never saw more than two baseships together at any given time, though before we'd seen fleets of four and six baseships fairly often.

This review seems to have glossed over one very important point.

Caprica had naked boobies!

Shouldn't we have a rating/discussion thread already? I know it's not out on DVD yet, but it sounds like a lot of us have already seen the pilot.

My concern with is the fact that it's not "officially" out. I'm not even sure HOW it can be out. I was surprised I was able to watch it. Just seems kinda ... what's the word? ... illegal.
