Re: The Doomsday Machine: Where's Uhura?

All of the shows I'm thinking about had an actor signed as the lead as well... but then so did all of the modern Star Trek series.

While none of the 60's shows (that I know of) had ensemble casts on par with Hill Street Blues or M*A*S*H*... shows like Mission:Impossible, Lost In Space, Land of the Giants, etc. featured all of the regulars in the opening credits and generally treated them as more integral components of the series.

On Star Trek, they not only weren't featured in the opening credits but were regularly substituted with random stand-ins.
