Nice suggestion Guest, but no credit given since you didn't leave a name or contact information in your posting.
Also Cylon Centurions is a good one Galactifan. These will be added to the final list. Thanks for your input to both of you.

Oh, I've got another one: "Carillon Carnage Commando"...

What do you think about that?

I'm trying to compile what is known about Cylon organization to see if anything else jumps out.

We know from the series there were...

Garrisons,
Flights (In Saga a centurion approaches the Imperious Leader and reports as "flight leader")
Squadrons

I like Cylon Centurions. The only thing is that the title sort of excludes anything other than a centurion. Gold cylons, IL series, Imperious Leader costumes really don't qualify as Centurions. Just a thought.

I think having Cylon in the name is a good idea. I guess some of it hinges on whether you want to focus on the Infantry or Fighter aspects of Cylons.

Cylon Raider Wing...I'm grabbing for straws now! :D

... that covers all the bases of costumes for all classic Cylon types - it is a group with a command structure, etc. etc.

Some other very cool names we can consider (provided by a friend of mine) are:
-Tin Can Brigade
-Gamoray Garrison
-Red-Eye Raiders
You know, IF you went with Cylon Empire as the overall name and then used the other names like "Tin Can Brigade" or "Red-Eye Raiders" (which I like that one) as your individual wings or local chapter names.

For Example: The Red-Eye Raiders are the local New York chapter of the Cylon Empire. and the Tin Can Brigade are the local Chicago chapter of the Cylon Empire.

Just my two cubits - Mind if I light up a fumarello?

YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

That has my vote - hands down. EXCELLENT idea, Kronus!

Cylon Empire definitely sounds ominous!

YES! OMINOUS. It is like the big bad Cylon Empire flicking a dead "501st fly" off a table. ;)

ONLY KIDDING! I would love to have the talent to join the 501st too - they are a great bunch of men and women that help their communities, bring smiles to sick children, etc. I'm just being silly - and saying how cool that new name would be. It is EXCITING!

Yes... And to follow the natural order of things we can subdivide it into garrisons. Such as Vulpa's gunners.
