I was recently stunned to see Paskey was also a member
of the IMF team in a first season Mission : Impossible
episode. Not a villain, but an actual team member. George Takei, Eddie Paskey and Leonard Nimoy can all boast being Enterprise crew members and IMF agents. There may be others - I've only seen a dozen or so M:I
's so far.
