After the original series ended in 1979, he would go on to write several novels within the same universe and even developed Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming, a short he created in 1999. He would also go on to guest on other shows such as The Love Boat, MacGyver, and Dynasty.
Interestingly enough, acting was not the first choice of profession for Hatch. His original dreams had himself becoming an Olympic Pole Vaulter. Growing up, Hatch was known to be a very shy person. In fact, he once flunked an oral interpretation class because he just couldn’t get the words to come out of his mouth. He eventually overcame his fears and would go on to help other actors struggling with similar issues.
