You've got to hand it to modern Galactica developer Ronald D. Moore for having the bright spark of involving original series veteran Richard Hatch in the new series re-imagining: it was a fine crowd-pleasing comeback for original fans and a nice nod to the past, as well as Hatch's previous sterling, if so far sadly unsuccessful, efforts to get a continuation of the original interpretation of the show off the ground. He may not be playing Apollo anymore, that part now inhabited by Jamie Bamber (who'd gave it a different, less heroic, and more fallible edge), but Hatch delivered a consistently excellent performance nonetheless in the guise of new anti-hero character, Tom Zarek.
