The Show

Outer Limits connections: Guest star Leonard Nimoy appeared in two episodes, "Production and Decay of Strange Particles" and "I, Robot". He also appeared in the '90's Outer Limits remake of "I, Robot", only this time he had the starring role as the lawyer defending the robot accused of murder, as opposed to the minor role of a wise-cracking newspaper reporter he had in the original.
