Apollo Meets Skywalker (RIP Richard Hatch)
ROT5 wanted to honor the memory of Golden Globe nominated actor Richard Hatch of "Battlestar Galactica" fame. Hatch passed away yesterday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Aside from it's obvious ties to "Star Wars," "Battlestar Galactica" had another interesting bond with a galaxy, far, far away. The same year that "Star Wars" hit theaters, Mark Hamill guest-starred on an episode of "The Streets of San Francisco" with Captain Apollo actor Richard Hatch. This was one year before "Battlestar Galactica" hit the air. In case you're interested in tracking the episode down, it's entitled "Innocent No More" and is episode 17 of Season 5. Thanks to Paul Bateman for bringing this to our attention.
