Late in the filming of the second season, Richard Basehart fell ill during the filming of the episode "The Monster's Web", and was unable to complete that episode, and work on the next two. "The Monster's Web" was re-written to minimize the part of his character, Admiral Nelson (knocked out of action in the first act), with a stand-in used for many shots with his face hidden and lines dubbed. The next episode, "The Menfish", had Nelson away, and his lines reassigned to guest character Admiral Park (Gary Merrill). The following episode, "The Mechanical Man", had Nelson still away, and reassigned his lines to Captain Crane (David Hedison) and Crane's lines to Commander Morton (Robert Dowdell). Basehart returned in time to appear in the season finale, "The Return of the Phantom".
