** The entire fifth season episode The Say UNCLE Affair runs on this trope as not only was Robert Vaughn a series regular and David McCallum playing the villain of the week, but the episode was structured to parody and reference episodes of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

** In an episode with a science fiction con, a guy in a [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaClassic original Galactica Cylon suit]] walks past "Face". In the episode in question, it's actually Hannibal in the costume. The ActorAllusion was all Dirk Benedict's idea. While filming at Universal Studios for the second season episode "Steel", Dirk spotted a park employee dressed as a Cylon, and decided he wanted to film a little nod to his days as Starbuck. The director told him it was a dumb idea, but let him do it anyway. So, they had the Cylon-clad actor stroll nonchalantly across the frame while Face was all "don't I know you?" Fortunately for Dirk, the scene ended up being quite funny and they kept it in the credits up to season 5.

** The "3D" film at a psychiatric hospital plays the show's theme tune, and one of the names of its opening credits read "Reginald Barclay" -- referencing Dwight Shultz's role as Lt. Barclay in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. Other names in the credits include G. F. Starbuck, a veiled reference to Dirk Benedict's Starbuck from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Classic}}'', and two more not clearly seen but confirmed by WordofGod -- Thomas Banacek (for George Peppard) and Clubber Lang (for Mr. T).

* RecycledScript: While other details are different, the season 2 episode "Recipe For Heavy Bread" and the season 4 episode "Mind Games" bear many similarities. The villains are both [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar Viet Cong]] war criminals turned mob bosses, both named General Chow (despite being separate characters), and the plot of both episodes revolves around the team trying to trick this elusive General Chow into revealing himself so he can be taken down.

** Season 3's "Double Heat" and season 4's "Judgment Day" also share similar aspects, namely both epiosdes involve mobsters kidnapping the daughter of a character played by Dana Elcar, in order to manipulate a court decision. Like the above example, they did at least have the decency to change other details.
