In researching Man from UNCLE, an interesting bit of trivia kept popping up: Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner’s first appearance together was in UNCLE’s season one episode “The Project Strigas Affair.”

You don’t really need a lot of context for the clip, but here’s a synopsis anyway: UNCLE is working to discredit a Balkan diplomat by selling him on a fake chemical agent called “Strigas.” Shatner’s playing Michael Donfield, a chemical engineer recruited to help with the plan. Nimoy is an assistant to the politician.

Anyway, enjoy Shatner’s deliriously drunk performance and Nimoy’s accent work.
