Has it ever been explained what happened to model Number Seven?

I'm a little surprised/confused that you didn't pull up the entry for Number Seven on the same wiki site you sourced for your question. – phantom42 Nov 24 '12 at 15:26
@phantom42 if ever there was a reason for "general reference" close reason... – Mike Nov 24 '12 at 15:27
@phantom42 There wasn't a link to it on the Cylons page of the Wiki, so I assumed there wasn't one. Link: -- Arg. You need to add the ")" by hand, annoyingly. – Django Reinhardt Nov 24 '12 at 15:37
@DjangoReinhardt For future reference, you can do [ name ]( link ) (without the spaces) to get: Cylons RDM - it correctly parses the closing paren if done that way – Izkata Nov 24 '12 at 16:21
@Izkata Thanks for that! – Django Reinhardt Nov 24 '12 at 18:00

(Most of this information is from the battlestar wiki for Number Seven, quoted here for completeness)

Yes, in one episode Ellen explains what happened to the Sevens.

The original seventh model was named "Daniel", and was described as very human-like (artistic, sensitive, etc.) Ellen, in particular, seemed to consider Daniel her favorite "child". Cavil became jealous of that relationship and destroyed the emerging Seven clones (he did something to the nutrients that were used to grow the clones) and killed the original Daniel.

With no original and no clones left the entire Seven line was dead. It was never shown on-screen and, apart from a handful of mentions in an historical context, plays no real part in the show. (Other than to show how much of a sociopath Cavil is).

In particular, many fan theories tried to put Seven as either Kara's father, or Kara herself, but Word of God was pretty explicit that Daniel never appeared on-screen.

"Daniel" was referred to as one of the final cylons. Daniel Graystone is that "Daniel". He made his appearance a generation before the rest at re-begat the cylon race.
