    The show reused many stars in different roles as different people. For example: John Vernon appeared as Colonel Josef Strom ("The Exchange"), General Ramon Sabattini ("The Falcon"), Ramone Fuego ("The Catafalque") and Norman Shields ("Movie"). William Windom appeared as Paul Mitchell ("The Fighter"), Stu Gorman ("Blues"), Alex Cresnic ("The Widow") and Deputy Premier Milos Pavel ("The Train").
