The Great War Of Magellan

The Great War of Magellan is a project by Richard Hatch and MerlinQuest Entertainment.

I found out about this when I read the Kate Mulgrew whine session.

Richard Hatch is putting that passion of his to good use. And not only can you find out about his project you can also go on a cruise with him. The Richard Hatch Cruise (wtf?) I don't know if I'd want to be on a cruise with this guy. When I saw him from afar at a con, the man was pretty grumpy.
Let me stop. I'm just giving the guy a hard time; a good old punch in the arm. (((hug me)))
It's just weird to have an actor freak you out. I'm the fan, it's my job to be all creepy and make people uncomfortable.

I read the FAQ file on the site and this is the low down on The Great War of Magellan.
What is The Great War of Magellan (GWoM)?
The Great War of Magellan (GWoM) is a new entertainment production effort by Richard Hatch and his Su-Shann Productions company in the science fiction genre. Richard describes it as "Road Warrior and The Matrix meet Braveheart in space" as warring human clans in a nearby war-ravaged galaxy are forced to come together and face common enemies -- or face eventual extinction. Due to the sensitive nature of selling the project, we cannot disclose script details at this time.

Is GWoM related to Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming, also by Richard Hatch?
No. Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming is not related to The Great War of Magellan, nor the new Battlestar Galactica project from Tom DeSanto, Bryan Singer, Billy Brown and Dan Angel.

Credits are forthcoming. Among those acting within the production:
Who will appear in the production?

Since The Great War of Magellan has not gone into full production yet, the casting has not taken place.
Richard Hatch
J.G. Hertzler --GIRLIE SQUEAL!!!! (played General Martok on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
Jason Carter --GIRLIE SQUEAL!!!! (played Ranger Marcus Cole on Babylon 5)

Richard Lynch
Brad Dourif --Hell yeah! (played numerous amounts of crazy men)
Marjorie Monaghan
Mickalean McCormick
James Logan --Can't go wrong with credis like Stuntman, Blue Alien, Beer Drinkning Redneck #2
Jane Connelly
Kevin Grazier
Paul Hatch
Jack Stauffer
Robin Atkin Downs

All they need is Jeffrey Combs and this will be a winner! I'm excited about this if this ever happens. It's actually cool to see an actor who may actually be a fan of science fiction.


As soon as I finished with the excitement, I realized that IMDB has this project listed as happening in 2003.

Like..... it's over????

I can't find a DVD to buy anywhere. It seems as if all of the links to the trailers are dead. I don't do RealMedia.
This is turning out to be way to difficult. It shouldn't be this hard.

Hatch, you're killin' me.

If you can hold your girly squeals for a week or so, you can listen to our in-depth interview with Richard Hatch. We caught up with him at GalaxyCon2 and then recorded a phone interview with him the following day. Give us a couple of weeks and you can hear about these projects and more!
