Default Thanks to THE Man!

We have been rather remiss in saying our congratulations to the man who made this convention possible.... RICHARD HATCH!

Not just the actor who gave us Apollo, but the man himself who put a lot of his financial self into making something wonderful for the fans.

I don't think he even realizes yet just how much we all did enjoy Galacticon!!! Even those who weren't able to go had fun and loved hearing all the news and stories!

I myself have been so filled with fun my whole weeks been a blur! It was like walking in a desert with a surfboard, then all of a sudden the place is hit by the big wet wave! And you are surfing trying to keep it together and its so damn fun! You are moving so fast, your senses are filled!

And after its all done, you still feel like you are surfing cause the fun was so great it keeps playing back in your head. And you pray you can remember as much as possible cause youwant to retain it all!

We all owe Richard that. He is the one who sunk his heart and soul and a great amount of personal finances into reviving the Galactica. He gave us those books. He gave us this convention. And despite some hard setbacks, he keeps on giving.

Please post here and tell him how we appreciate all he has done.

Thank you to the once and future Colonial Warrior, Richard Hatch. You have made a fan for life. I will never forget your generosity and the hard work you have devoted to the show, your fellow cast members and to us, the fans.

thanks richard hatch, for all you have done and continue to do.

Hear the rime of the ancient mariner
See his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerises one of the wedding guests
Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the sea.

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale.

Add my voice to the chorus, for everything he's done for BSG fans (like me).

I also hope to one day meet Mr. Hatch in person - the next Galacticon, maybe?? In the meantime, though, I will remain grateful for his perseverence and vision.

Because of you, I believe in hope and perseverance. Thank you so much for all you've done! You have no idea how much of a difference you have made in our lives (especially this daggit )...

Thumbs up Thank you Richard!

Words can not begin to express how greatful I am for all you have done and continue to do for Galactica. The energy you have is amazing, and has become an inspiration to me.
Your dedication and hard work has not gone unnoticed, and maybe someday I will be able to say "Thank You" in person.

Keeping The Faith,

Default Revival...

The fact is, we all can thank Richard for there being a Battlestar Revival in the first place. Let's face it, this franchise was pretty dead in the late 1980s and early 90s. Richard was the one who brought it back and boy did he ever!!!!

Everything that is happening right now we owe to Richard!!!

Thanks, Dude!!!!!

Thumbs up Thank You!

Although you were only in my 'neck of the woods' (the UK) for a short time last month, Richard, I'm glad to have met you (thanks for the photos!) and also grateful for the all the work you have done with the revival. The enthusiasm you showed in your talk was nothing short of infectious! Also, thanks for bringing over your wonderful trailers too.

You are the key to what Battlestar Galactica was, what it is, and what it can be.....


All the best,
Ian W359
