Martin Landau had a dispute with the Studio, possibly over money, although in an interview published in TV Zone in 1992, his then wife Barbara Bain, denied this, saying: “It was something to do with an approach that was made concerning Martin‘s contract”. What ever the reason, Landau didn’t renew his contract, reportedly turning down $7,000 per show, and Barabara Bain left with him, leading to a major re-vamp of the IMF team. Mission: Impossible's next door neighbour Star Trek had just finished production, and Leonard Nimoy (Mr Spock) joined the Mission: Impossible cast as The Great Paris, a character with much the same skills and abilities as Rollin Hand. It was decided not to replace Barbara Bain with another regular female member of the team, and a number of actresses made guest appearances during the season, with Lee Meriwether playing Tracey in four episodes, including the three-parter The Falcon.

Episodes were often not broadcast in the same order that they were produced, especially at the begining of a season. I have therefore given three numbers in this table.
The episode number represents the production order over the entire series, the season number represents the episode production order within the season, and TX Order represents the original transmission order.
For example, The Controllers (Part 1) was the 76th episode made, the first season four episode made, but the third shown.
