The Show

Outer Limits connections: Guest Star Scott Marlowe appeared in the episode "The Forms of Things Unknown", which was originally intended to serve as the first episode of a proposed OL spinoff, The Unknown, and a rare print of the episode with The Unknown opening and closing and theme music exists, but it wound up being shown as a first-season OL episode instead. The Unknown may not have sold, but the ripaway graphics used for the opening titles, as well as Domenic Frontiere's haunting opening music, were later salvaged for the later ABC series The Invaders.

Real-life rodeo rider Casey Tibbs, whom Stoney Burke was based on, makes the first of several appearances in the series.
