Richard Hatch Battlestar Galactica Dies at 71

07 Feb 2017

Richard Hatch who is famous for his roles in Battlestar Galactica first in the original as  Captain Apollo And then later he returned to the reboot as Tom Zarek passed away at the age of 71 after his battle with pancreatic cancer. A statement from his family of his death was posted on his website along with a link for fans to send condolences and share memories.
Personally it has never been easy to hear of the death of someone you grew up with. Even if that person was an actor who came into your living room once a week on the television. The memories of sitting and watching Battlestar Galactica as a child with my father who like me liked a good sci fi movie or series will always stick with me. So for that I will have to say thanks for the memories may you Rest in Peace .
The following statement comes from RichardHatch.com

February 7, 2017 -- Paul Hatch, on behalf of the Hatch family and friends, is sad to confirm the passing of his beloved father Richard Lawrence Hatch, who passed away in Los Angeles, California this afternoon.


Battlestar Galactica Blood and Chrome Finally hits SYFY

11 Feb 2013


Blood and Chrome was originally inented as a prequel series to the hit Battlestar Galactica TV Series. But SYFY decided not to go through with it as a series. How ever in 2012 the pilot was broken up into short webisodes that you can watch on Youtube or here on our video section via streaming.
The webisodes turned back into a pilot movie raises the question. Is SYFY contemplating making the series. I for one thought the pilot show was the best of the all the series pilots . The action and effects outdid its parent franchise and going retro on the cylons and their equipment did not hurt the argument for a series either. Like everything this hinges on fan support and how well the movie did last night. As of now no is the word but the move to convert the series to a tv event and bring it to DVD makes you wonder if the network is not throwing a line into the proverbial waters to see if its not worth another look. It would not be the first time and it sure will not be the last that a dead on arrival series got a second life on SYFY.


New Battlestar webisodes about the Cylon Wars

There will be a new Battlestar series but this time on the web. There will be about 10 - 10 minute webisodes of the series that is suppose to boast high tech effects.  This will be a post series epic about a young Adama and Cylon war. The webisodoes are suppose to bring to light the true horror of wars especially ground combat. It will be interesting to see the end results. As a big BSG fan of both the original and the remake I will of course keep my eye on the the whens and wheres this will happen and blog back when I hear anything.

"Blood & Chrome" would consist of nine or 10 episodes of nine or 10 minutes each, and it would make use of cutting-edge digital technology and special effects to depict the Cylon War. If it is greenlit to production, it will be filmed using green screens and virtual sets, not unlike Syfy's "Sanctuary" or James Cameron's "Avatar." Before "Battlestar Galactica" ended, high-tech scans were made of all the show's sets, so that the special-effects team will be able to re-create them (possibly even in 3D).
