The Outer Limits

The Forms of Things Unknown - S1-E32

Trivia: This is the only Outer Limits episode that lacks both opening and closing narration. It was absent because "Forms" was the unsold pilot for a series called The Unknown. A second version, stripped of all its supernatural elements (Tone was simply a mad scientist, not a real time traveler), also failed to sell.

The Forms of Things Unknown - S1-E32

Trivia: Part of Dominic Frontiere's haunting musical score for this episode later became the theme and background music for the TV series The Invaders, a show for which Frontiere served as the primary composer.

The Duplicate Man - S2-E13

Trivia: The bird-beaked alien megasoid from this episode made a "guest appearance" in the first Star Trek pilot, shot the same year (1964). It can be glimpsed in one of the Keeper's enclosures in the uncut version of "The Cage."

Cold Hands, Warm Heart - S2-E2

Trivia: By weird coincidence, this episode features William Shatner (two years before Captain Kirk's adventures with the Vulcan Mr. Spock began) as an astronaut whose mission is dubbed "Project Vulcan." Also in the episode is Lawrence Montaigne, who would later play the Vulcan Stonn on Star Trek.
