Sire Uri's game for control of the Colonial fleet is well and truly over once the Cylon's agrressive presence is discovered at the Ovion casino on Carillon, in this classic comedy moment from Saga of a Star World, which I clearly recall got a big laugh from cinema audiences in 1978.
Its a shame that Sire Uri never received a mention or made an appearance in the actual TV series ever again. Did he survive the battle on Carillon and go skulking back to the Rising Star?

At some point I'll have to find this film and see if it's any good...
