Should've said this a few months ago

Here's a duh moment about Battlestar Galactica's Cylons:

From Wikitionary for Scion:

From Old French cion, ciun, cyon, sion; cognate with French scion and Picard chion.[1]

scion (plural scions)

  1. A descendant, a son or daughter.
  2. A detached shoot or twig containing buds from a woody plant, used in grafting.
  3. The heir to a throne.
Cyon like Cylon. The child of humanity are the robots. Of course, the Glen A. Larson production of the 1970s didn't make out the Cylons to be the descendants of man, but the creation of an alien race.
