decide to go from the 12 modeled cylons and adopt the 7 modeled cylons and the final five?
I found it interesting becuase I remember looking forward to watching the show early on as they slowy revealed each model.
In the mini series, Baltar asks Six how many cylons are there? She says 12 and that she is number six which indicates that she is aware of 12 modeled cylons. Also, later on down the series the big stink of "we don't speak of the five b.s." came into play. So when did the writers go from the above mentioned questions?
Me thinks production money was the key in this change during the series. It would be hard to have 12 recurring cast members coming back all the time so the idea was to lock it in at 7 and creat a new story arc with the five since they do not have mopdel numbers.
