Design a Steampunk Cylon

The producers of Battlestar Galactica have set a challenge: Design a steampunk Cylon. To the whalebone vats!

Imagine a Cylon Heavy Raider crashes in the 1800s somewhere on Earth. Only a single Centurion survives, and it's heavily damaged. Realizing its only chance at survival is to use the tools available, it repairs itself with the materials of the era.

The contest is not open to residents of Canada, sadly. But do keep me apprised of progress. Thanks too to the Flea-reader who purchased Watchmen. My first Amazon referral! :-)

I wouldn't dream of entering such a contest.

The Professors Foglio have it covered (see "clank")
