I think it was called "Battlestar Gallactica" or something like that? Interestingly enough, if you go back to the beginning (the underappreciated prequel "Caprica"), it turns out that the entire reason the Cylons wound up thinking like this is because they were created by human religious fanatics who believed in a single god, not the multiple gods that everyone else believed in. I guess those "desert believers" (Christians, Jews, Muslims) and their aggressive belief in a single god are bad news even in fiction. :-) "Caprica" really *was* far more intelligent than "Battlestar Galactica," BTW. It failed because it didn't have enough shoot 'em ups and space battle scenes to suit the taste of American vidiots.
