Number Seven was a Humanoid Cylon model series created by the Final Five. The sevens went by the name "Daniel", given to them by Ellen.
After the creation of the Significant Seven, the Number Ones began a rebellion against their creators. Among their actions was the poisoning of the amniotic fluid used to mature the Number Seven bodies, and then corrupted their genetic code to prevent any more being created. The reasoning given by Ellen Tigh was that the Ones were jealous of her fondness for them and destroyed the series to get back at her.
Further notes Edit
As the concept of the Final Five only emerged in Season 3, Ronald D. Moore had to find an explanation for the Number Eights, and confirmed its status as a plot device in a podcast for the episode, "Islanded in a Stream of Stars". Though he would later admit that the name was a coincidence, Moore teased in the "No Exit" podcast that the "Daniels" were named after Daniel Graystone, inventor of the Colonial Cylons, who had recently appeared in the Caprica pilot.
