I'm looking to find out if any of the actors from the 1970's Battlestar Galactica appeared as guest stars in the 2005-2009 Series?

I've compared the IMDB list as best i can, and done some searching and didn't find any prior questions.

Richard Hatch played Apollo in the 1978 series, then played Tom Zarek, the political activist, in the 2004 series.

    I think for "political activist", what you meant to say was "convicted terrorist" :)

    I think when you said "convicted terrorist", what you meant to say was "vice president" ;P Commented Feb 1, 2019 at 10:07

    What I wanted was to avoid adding any ‘weight ‘ to the politics ;)

  • Hatch had long lobbied for a revival of the original Battlestar Galactica series, even putting together a "Second Coming" trailer in 1999. But the Ron Moore series was essentially disconnected from Hatch's efforts. It was nice to see Hatch get a juicy bit in the re-imagined series. Commented Feb 1, 2019 at 14:09
