A Cylon Mine is an explosive spaceborne device deployed by the Cylons in the Straits of Madagon.

In an already dangerous area of space, destroying the mine field is an extremely risky mission, but is the only viable option left open to the Fleet. Captain Apollo, along with Lieutenants Boomer and Starbuck launch in specially-shielded Vipers to clear the Cylon minefield.

The Cylon mine can withstand temperatures capable of melting the hull of a Colonial Viper, but a single shot from a Viper mounted laser is enough to destroy the mine (TOS: "Saga of a Star World").
