Warning: Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged exposure to the Robot Overlord. Robot Overlord may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds. The Robot Overlord contains a liquid core, which if exposed due to rupture, should not be touched, inhaled, or looked at. If Robot Overlord begins to smoke, get away immediately. Seek shelter and cover head. Do not taunt the Robot Overlord.


  1. No question about it. Old School Cylons were robots. Nothing special.
    Even Old School Daleks were dangerous and deadly. The Doctor had respect for them and almost died by their hands on a number of occasions.
    The Current Daleks are even more dangerous and just as ruthless. Not that they are pure once again, we shall reign supreme, I mean they.

    To paraphrase a Dalek/Cylon conversation
    Dalek: We would destroy the Cybermen with one Dalek! You are superior in only one respect.
    Cylon: What is that?
    Dalek: You are better at dying! Exterminate!!Exterminate!Exterminate!!

  2. Yet another poll where I know nothing about the combatants. All I know is that some one at WWPhilly dressed as a Dalek this year. I voted for him because putting humans in armor does not a robot make.

  3. You have to ask? Daleks all the way. The have escaped the void between realities and created a weapon capable of destroying all realities. They forced the Time Lords into making such a weapon to end the time war. The only weakness the Daleks had were stairs until the 9th doctor :)

  4. Really? It’s like a MMA fighter taking on a 6 year old in a wheelchair. Daleks all the way.

    Either the Cylons were crafted by Lizards or Man(choose you own continuity), nothing is as superior a being as a Dalek.


  5. Got to go with the Daleks. The Cylons just pick on the humans. The Daleks have proven themselves capable of fighting Time Lords, even with their inability to climb stairs. Any bad guy that can hang with the Doctor wins out over a mechanized bully.

  6. Even though I went with the Borg over the Cyberman last week, there’s no way that the Cylons (Robots with lasers) can beat the Daleks (genteically altered aliens in robot suits with lasers and TIME TRAVEL.) Time travel wins.

    So with two silly looking metal bad guys from old TV shows, I go with the ones who can go back in time, but not up the stairs. But seriously, everyone knows that basestars don’t have stairs.

  7. I remember many points in my young life watching Doctor Who episodes and being very frightened when the Dalek episodes would come on.
    As a young teenager, the Canadian Sci-Fi channel launched and aired a staggering amount of the early seasons of the Doctor. It still chilled my blood when I saw the earliest black-and-white appearances of the Daleks.

    Cylon’s may win in a “which is sexier?” contest, but in a true battle nothing can match the battle cry of You shall be EXTERMINATED!

  8. Wait. Which Cylons are you talking about?

    If its Old Cylons vs Old Daleks, winning is as simple as going up some stairs. If its New Cylons vs New Daleks; Cylons still win since they have the re-birthing chamber. So I’m going with the Cylons.

    To those who are voting Dalek just because of time travel; I seriously think your underestimating the ability that Cylons have to adapt. Humans also thought they had beaten the Cylons and were seriously proven wrong.

    I’m also predicting that the Major Spoilers crew will unanimously vote Dalek.

    • Daleks have something similar to the rebirthing chamber. They have a generator that just reproduces full Daleks.

      It only takes a single Dalek to bring Earth to its knees. How many Cylons did it take?

  9. I’m going to have to go for the Daleks, now that they have overcome their stair handicap i think they could win, besides I’m pretty sure Cylons can’t time travel and have not been able to commit genocide for even 1 race (they came close) the Daleks think of the bigger picture

  10. Daleks, hands down, no contest.

    The Cylons would be disintegrated within seconds.

    As one Dalek famously said: “This is not war. This is pest control!”

  11. Daleks
    The machine that reproduces an infinite number of daleks.
    Laser Beams.
    Are able to travel thru time and space.

    The resurrection ship.
    Did they used bullets or lasers (don’t remember).
    Able to travel in space.

    Well, the battle would end before it started. If the daleks by any chance were found in a difficult position it would only be need one to travel back in time and kill the person that created them. This would also create a paradox, killing humankind… But, then thanks to PHD time lord we are alive.
