Eaglemoss EMBGS09 Battlestar Galactica Cylon Raider - 1978 Series [With Collector Magazine] "There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people."
- Commander William Adama

The Raider is the standard starfighter employed by the Cylons in the 1978 science fiction television series and movie Battlestar Galactica along with its re-imagining in the 2003 miniseries and 2004 television series.

The Raider in the original 1978 series is a roughly saucer-shaped, twin-engine craft seen employed by the Cylon Empire and used in a fighter-bomber role. They were frequently depicted attacking the titular Battlestar, the rag-tag fleet it protects, their Viper fighters, and humans and targets on the surface of planets. Raiders were often shown flying in three-ship formations, strafing large ships and occasionally making kamikaze-style suicide attacks, notably striking Battlestar fighter launch and landing bays. They were used in an interceptor role against enemy craft approaching a Basestar.

Raiders feature large cockpits with three seats, two forward ones and one to the rear for the commander, whether that be a Cylon Centurion or the human traitor Baltar. In the episodes "The Living Legend" and "War of the Gods" Baltar utilizes a Raider to act as his personal transport. Albeit the Cylons are depicted as robots, their ship interiors were frequently depicted as containing a human-breathable atmosphere.

The original series' Raider made an appearance in the reimagined series vignette Battlestar Galactica: Razor, though slightly altered in appearance, and piloted by centurions very reminiscent of the originals.
