Storyline

Two years earlier, a rare metal isotope important in nuclear weapons development was stolen from the U.S. and hidden in the United People's Republic. Otto Silff, one of three men involved in the theft, was killed by his co-conspirator, Major Paul Johan. Johan is planning to sell the isotope to an Asian nation that is also an enemy of the U.S. To recover the isotope before the sale takes place, Paris poses as Silff, supposedly having had a disfiguring injury coupled with plastic surgery, and suffering from amnesia -- but "unconsciously" displaying characteristics of the missing Otto Silff.

Trivia

Paris (Leonard Nimoy) and the IMF's female operative, Monique (Julie Gregg) drop various clues that Paris is really the dead Otto Silff suffering from amnesia about his former identity. One of those clues is that he plays Otto's and Alena's "theme," which Monique even refers to as "Beyond the Shadow of Today." That is the real name of a composition written by Lalo Schifrin (who also wrote "Mission: Impossible's" famous theme music) for its sister program, "Mannix." The music was written for the similarly-titled episode "Beyond the Shadow of a Dream" from the first season of "Mannix." See more »

Person on Tape: [voice on tape] Good morning, Mr. Phelps. Two years ago, a sphere of a rare isotope known as trivanium was stolen from us. Trivanium is invaluable as it could lead to development of nuclear weapons so inexpensive that any nation in the world could afford them. Three men engineered the actual theft of the trivanium. One was Otto Silff. The second, Major Paul Johan. The third, the leader, Colonel Alex Vorda, security chief of their country. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to ...
