Publisher's Summary

After the Cylon war, the Cylons retreated to parts unknown in deep space, and the 12 human colonies rebuilt that which was destroyed in the devastating war. The two sides honor their armistice agreement, and for 20 years nothing is heard from the Cylons. But sometimes no news is bad news. 

For the humans, the aftermath of the war has created a new, albeit illegal profession: scavenger. Tom Zarek is one of these scavengers, scouring the outer settlements for valuable Cylon technologies and artifacts, usually returning empty handed. But now, he and the crew of the cruiser Lightning have found the Omega Station, a scientific facility shrouded in secrecy beyond the edge of charted space. 

This is it, the big score, except something is wrong... 

The base is still occupied, not by humans, but by Cylons!

The Battlestar Galactica receives the Lightning's distress call, getting the coordinates and a cryptic one-word message: "Cylons." A younger William Adama, just promoted to second in command, is worried. His crew is not prepared for dealing with more than the most routine of missions. And this mission is anything but routine, as they discover the base is full of Cylons, but also something much more disturbing...and deadly.

More is Always Better for the BSG Fan

The Cylons' Secret set between the first and second Cylon Wars is an interesting story for the BSG Fan. With elements taken from the re-imagined series as well as the short lived Caprica series it tells of a young Adama and Zerek and the Cylons' quest to survive. Excellent stand alone story. Jonathan Davis delivers another awesome narration.

An superb story. and excellent performance.<br />

While it does deviate from some story elements from the show aswell as blood and chrome, i find it could fit in the continuity of the main story. Even as a stand alone Cylons secret was a great and fun read. Jonathan Davis was as always a superb narrator. Any one looking for a taste of BSG or any die hard fan would enjoy this book.

Sound Effects?

I loved the story, however, after seeing the old and new TV series, sound effects would help.

Not what I expected

I thought this would be like the TV series. Also I expected this to follow the Battlestar Galactica book I purchased. Very disappointed.

Pretty Good

It wasn't bad. Didn't really tie in with the series though, which is to bad. If you like BSG, then you'll like this one.

not worth the time

Its funny, you think that as with Trek, they could get some decent media related books. Some decent back story but lame story and they forced the series into the book. ( No hint of the five or the how they wraped up the series)
