For your consideration:

Adding Allison.

Thinking of a new poll based the premise of the last 3
Think I'll title it Captive Characters on Sci-Fi TV.
Might be an all Star Trek poll.
Glenn Corbett in Star Trek 1966
Zephram Cochran on Star Trek T.O.S. for one.
I can think of a couple of dozen easy!!!

Ed,

Yes, Alexander Mundy in "It Takes a Thief" would make my top 5. I watched the majority of the episodes of "It Takes a Thief".

I was about to give a reply and then the discussion link lead me to - you guessed it - TRACEY WALTER. Honestly, Ed - what have I ever done to you?
