"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Hello Everyone,

My apologies for the delay in getting a message out to you all...I have been traveling the last few days, plus it has taken me a bit of time to wrap my head around what happened this past week.

As you all know, Richard Hatch passed away this past Tuesday February 7th.

Again, it is something that took me a few days to adjust to & to even actually believe...I'm sure you all have felt the same way.

I will tell you that I will miss him greatly...for all of you who had a chance to meet him & to know him...you'll remember what a truly great guy he was.

Not only a wonderful person, a talented one at that...not only as an actor, but as a writer, producer & motivational speaker and instructor.

He was also probably Battlestar Galactica's greatest fan as well as being it's loudest and most persistent booster.

If not for his efforts the franchise might never have grown past the original series & the short lived Galactica: 1980.

I know that everyone is saddened at this loss, but at the same time we must remember all the great things that grew out of his being among us.

I also know that rather than falter, he would want each & everyone of us to continue to carry the torch and continue where he left off, to keep doing what we have been doing in order to keep the dream alive.

To move forward.

So now we must raise a cup of Ambrosia to our friend & remember that in many real ways he is still among us & we can keep his memory alive....see you on the other side my friend...

So Say We All!
