I have to admit being stunned at the plethora of 4 and 5 star reviews for this cretinous mess of a novel. Have any of you ever WATCHED Battlestar Galactica? To paraphrase a line from Lloyd Bentsen, I've watched Battlestar Galactica, and this is NOT Battlestar Galactica. Hatch has produced a book that aggrandizes his character at the expense of all the others, and in addition is riddled with stupid mistakes of fact (Rigel a man, Omega elderly, etc etc etc), spelling errors (he can't even spell "felgercarb," for sagan's sake!), and various irritants including his horrible racist "only the pure blood of Kobol can rule" concept. Richard is a pathetic man trying desperately to revive a failed acting career. Go watch the series and don't buy this piece of trash; it will only encourage him further.

I've been a Battlestar Galactica fan from the beginning, and I have to say I have read a lot of fan fiction (including a lot of bad fan fiction!) that's actually better and more consistent to the series than this. Richard has given us - I presume unintentionally - a kind of white male Aryan power fantasy. This book is really a mess. Go to the used bookstores and look up the older novels; even the worst ones were better. Or check out some good fan fiction.

After reading all the reviews of this God-awful book, I am firmly convinced that all one has to do is pound out random gibberish while sitting blindfolded at the keyboard and simply title it Battlestar Galactica to have rabid Galactica fans ooh and aah and rave about how good it is. Actually, if Hatch and Golden had done that instead of pound out this dreck, I might have given that kind of project one star.

What an awful, awful book. Richard Hatch has twisted the Galactica concept and turned his character Apollo (who he obviously sees himself as) into some sort of demi-god. The story rambles and it seems that there was some sort of secret contest the he and his co-writer had to see just how many inconsistancies and contradictions with the original television series that they could cram into each chapter.
