Quote of the Day - "The Hybrid"

There were many memorable and even haunting quotes from the "reimagined" Battlestar Galactica TV series. The single most quotable character in the series was The Hybrid (who was actually innumerable copies of the same character with each one controlling the operations of an individual Cylon Base Ship). In any case the most powerful and haunting of all The Hybrid quotes was the following message given (which appears in the the movie The Plan) as a first report back from the battlefield of the results of the massive Cylon nuclear attack on the Twelve Colonies:

Progress reports arriving. 
The farms of Aerolon are burning. 
The beaches of Canceron are burning. 
The plains of Leonis are burning. 
The jungles of Scorpia are burning. 
The pastures of Tauron are burning. 
The harbors of Picon are burning. 
The cities of Caprica are burning. 
The oceans of Aquaria are burning. 
The courthouses of Libran are burning. 
The forests of Virgon are burning. 
The Colonies of Man lie trampled at our feet.

  1. I would sure say so... it merely describes the destruction of the fictional twelve human colonies in the BSG universe.
