* {{Expy}}: Multiple times characters left, but were replaced by other characters with identical personalities and characteristics. For example, Nick Lassard, who joins the cast in ''Assignment Miami Beach'', is identical in character to Carey Mahoney, who left after ''Citizens on Patrol''. Kyle Connors, who shows up in ''Mission to Moscow'', is also near-identical to Mahoney and Nick. The characters Thaddeus Harris and Mauser are also almost identical.
