    RIP Captain Apollo

    Richard Hatch has passed away - https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-r...llo-dies-at-71

    He had a very effective role in the new Battlestar Galactica series too...

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Cancer again. FFS.

    Used to like the old Battlestar Galactica when I was a kid.

    Didn't know he was so old? Benedict (Starbuck) is 71 too.

    I'm completely shocked he was 71! That was my first reaction the other day when I saw the announcement. It's a shame, as even though 71 seems way older than he should be, to my nostalgia tinged eyes, it's still pretty young in this day and age.
