Everything you wanted to know about the main characters of the popular original Battlestar. Q & A with Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict, Anne Lockhart and Herbert Jefferson Jr.

Doubtful it's "everything" ... I want to know why Hatch sold out to Ron
Moore's silly version after years of trying to get a proper sequel
series made. :-(

Yeah, it's probably not "everything". That was just the description from the program. Fairly entertaining nonetheless...

Someone still feels that way. Have to admit I feel the same way from
time to time.

But one thing that can be said about the new series is that it did have
a fair shake, well budgeted, and had the blessing of the sci-fi network.

This cannot be said for the original run of Battlestar, where the
network continued to scale back budget, did not support it, and was
always hampering the script ideas.

I think this is the reason when I have spoke to Richard Hatch that he
talks favorably about the new show, along with the original that is
close to a lot of fan's hearts.

I can also say that having met a lot of the new cast at Galacticon 3 in
Houston, tX that they were a great bunch of people. Really fan friendly
and supportive.

I may not be fan of the new show, but I can see where Hatch also said he
enjoyed the cast that he had to work with.

This above is no slam to the original series, just showing why Hatch
would want to work on the new show. A new show that is about 10 years
old now BTW. :)

Richard Hatch worked on the new version because they asked him and he
needed a job ... plain and simple.

Yeah, most actors can't afford to turn down work. But there's nothing that says just because you like one version of BSG then you can't like the other.

If you like "Battlestar Galactica", then that means Glen Larsen's
original. Ron Moore's version is a completely different show (style,
design, storyline, characters, etc.), and although you can also like
that as a show in its own right, it is not really "Battlestar
Galactica".
