I've heard about this for years but this is the first time I've actually seen the trailer from 1999. Seems Monsieur Hatch couldn't get it off the ground, but I guess it paid off for him with a role on the "re-imagined" 2003 show.
Looks as cheesily campy as the original show to me. I'm glad they went a different direction in 2003, but it's still kinda cool.
Interestingly enough, some of Hatch's Cylon Raiders and suped-up Centurions aren't a million miles from what turned up on the "new" show.
