Richard Hatch, Battlestar Galactica, has passed at 71

Richard Hatch has passed away at the age of 71.  Although widely recognized as Tom Zarek in the Battlestar Galactica (2004-09) television show, his acting career began back with an appearance on All My Children in 1971.  Since then he has made appearances in shows such as Hawaii Five-O (1973-75) and starred in The Streets of San Francisco.

Within our own geeky fandoms, he’s also known for his original performance in Battlestar Galactica (1978) as Captain Apollo, as Commander Kharn from Axanar, and he had even made guest appearances on the hit web series The Guild.

It is being reported that Hatch passed due to an ongoing illness, but had been surrounded by friends and family.

So say we all.
