Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Written by Jeffrey M. Hayes, "The Sands of Seth" guest stars Tim Elliot as Dr. Selim, the curator of a Cairo archeological museum -- and head of an ancient Egyptian cult. Determined to restore the glories of the Egyptian empires of old, Selim murders anyone who does not share his lofty vision. To get the goods on Selim, the IMF fabricates a series of amazing archaeological "discoveries." With the original telecast of "The Sands of Seth" on February 24, 1990, the Mission: Impossible series revival of 1988-1990 was officially put on hiatus, never to return.
