Richard Hatch, best-known as Captain Apollo on Battlestar Galactica (1978—1979) has died in hospice after a battle with pancreatic cancer, according to TMZ. He was 71.
Hatch also appeared on All My Children back in 1971, on one season of The Streets of San Francisco (from '76—'77), on Dynasty (1984) and on the soap Santa Barbara (1990).
I loved Richard Hatch. In the '70s, he was in all the teen magazines, which says a lot about how differently we look at who makes good teen idols nowadays considering the fact that he was 30 years old.

A stunning man, the camera absolutely loved him. I was so happy I met him about five years ago at an autograph show, where I got to have him sign a pretty sexy magazine spread of himself. He was only too happy to oblige.
