Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The IMF works hand in hand with a band of guerillas to rescue three rebellious scientists from a Communist prison. One of the captives is the beautiful Irina (Davana Brown), who has committed to memory all the secret information gathered by a recently executed scientist. The question: Will the IMF inadvertently cause Irina's own death when they hand her over to the guerillas? In the episode's most memorable scene, Phelps and his temporary ally Alex (Robert Purvey) hide in a huge statue. Originally telecast on November 28, 1970, "The Rebel" was scripted by Ken Pettus, from a story by Pettus and Norman Katkov.
