To all of my fellow Colonials, Warriors and Fleet personnel: May the Divine cherish the soul of Richard Hatch upon arrival, and so reunite him with Lorne Greene, Lloyd Bridges, Glen Larson, and so many others among the creative people who helped make the original 'Battlestar Galactica' series a joy to see. Though I never personally met him, to know that many of you did have the chance to shake hands and converse with 'our Captain Apollo', it is a heartwarming feeling to me. In my heart, I know that each of your individual experiences touched him deeply as much as it did for you all. People intrinsically like to be remembered for their efforts, and I firmly believe that your fan support was a true joy and comfort to Mr.Hatch during his personal health struggle. I know one of the pillars of the original Galactica is no longer with us today, but just as much as I believe that my father still lives within me in spirit, so too does Captain Apollo maintain his patrol in the heavens with his brother Flight Lieutenant Zac and his father Commander Adama. Richard Hatch lives on in spirit in all of us classic Galactica fans. May God Bless each and every one of you, and may you know peace and sympathy.
With Respectful Condolences, Dave Gaba, "atlantiaistoast"

On a happier note-- to Fleasome and Sunchaser, the outfits look amazing! As a 'Fleeter', I'm super appreciative of the blue uniforms, and Fleasome, you rock the swashbuckling 'tude of Starbuck. Well done for you all!
