|Zac (Rick Springfield) and Apollo (Richard Hatch)|
For fans of Battlestar Galactica, Rick Springfield will always be remembered as the doomed Lt. Zac. Zac was the first casualty of what would come to be called The Great Destruction ("Saga of A Star World"). A deleted scene from "Saga of A Star World" revealed that Zac had the highest grades in the history of the academy.
This talented actor / singer / song-writer / novelist has several science fiction productions to his credit. He appeared - an animated form - as the star of the cult-favorite Filmation Saturday morning series Mission: Magic! (1973), where he played a rock star named "Rick" who had magical powers. Springfield wrote and sang a new song for every episode of the series, which ran for 16 episodes..

Springfield's one (and to this date only) Science Fiction themed Music Video "Human Touch" is fantastic fun. In this video, he plays a time-traveler (via cryogenics) who thaws out in the futuristic year...2016! I've provided a YouTube link to this great video at the end of this article.
The science fiction worlds of Rick Springfield are many and varied. The man who was Lt. Zac is unstoppable!
