Apollo & Starbuck – Sci-Fi On The Small Screen

In memoriam of the passing of Richard Hatch, I thought you guys might enjoy this tribute to the enduring friendship of the character that made him a legend, and his friend!

When you talk about Battlestar Galactica… I am you think of either Caprica, the movies, or any of the other multitude of Battlestar Galactica vehicles that have come out since the updated show came out back around 2004!  I would even say it is pretty safe to say that when you here about ‘Apollo & Starbuck’ that you think about the characters from the remake… Which is fine, but for me, I want to talk about the original Apollo & Starbuck from the original series!

I also wanted to give a very special send off to Richard Hatch, who really set the bar for, ‘Apollo’.  Mr. Hatch’s work really gave Jamie Bamber, a great model to start off with in where to take his, ‘Apollo’.  The fact is, is I didn’t really know much of his work outside of the world of Battlestar Galactica, but what I have seen I am impressed! Impressed with Mr. Hatch’s talent as an actor, and the element of believability he brought to the role!

Here is a quote from the man himself:

“Some of the most amazing human beings on the face of the planet go to sci-fi conventions, although I’m sure a few of them wouldn’t admit it.” – Richard Hatch.

So in memoriam to Richard Hatch who passed away here recently.   I thought you guys would enjoy this tribute memorializing the friendship between Apollo & Starbuck from the original Battlestar Galactica… Apollo being the characrer that made him an acting legend!
