Richard Hatch, the Golden Globe nominee who starred in both the original Battlestar Galactica as well as the mid-2000s reboot, has died at 71 after a battle with cancer.
“Richard Hatch was a good man, a gracious man, and a consummate professional. His passing is a heavy blow to the entire BSG family,” tweeted Ronald D. Moore, creator of the Battlestar Galactica reboot.
Hatch had been battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer, Alec Peters, the writer/producer behind the Star Trek fan film Axanar, wrote on Facebook. Hatch had acted in and was a supporter of the project.
“Richard was in good spirits when I visited him 2 weeks ago. He knew his time was short, but was comforted by the fact that his son would be taken care of,” wrote Peters.
Hatch also had a roll in the rebooted Battlestar Galactica and played Kharn in the Star Trek Axanar fan films.
Edward James Olmos, his co-star on the BSG reboot, tweeted a tribute Tuesday: “Richard Hatch you made our universe a better place We love you for it,” wrote his co-star Edward James Olmos on Twitter. “Rest In Peace my friend @SoSayWeAll the Admiral!”
