M.O. (Method of operation)Edit
When the Impossible Missions Force began to employ grand-scale confidence tricks on its mission targets as its modus operandi, it was Collier, most often working together with Armitage, who usually assembled the falsified environments (called "big stores" by confidence artists) against which backdrops the missions would be accomplished. One of his favorite such methods, first employed in "The Train Mission" and later in such missions as "Submarine(The Submarine Mission)," was "falsifications of journeys," by which mission targets were led to believe themselves in transit when they were actually neither moving nor going anywhere at all. Another favorite falsified environment of his was "(NOT) ending this world," first used in "The Photographer Mission," by which means mission targets were led to believe that Earth, as they knew it, had been almost totally destroyed and that they were among the handful of survivors of the (FALSIFIED) carnage.
The actor Greg Morris played Barney throughout "Mission: Impossible" the original series run. He guest starred in the episodes "The Condemned" and "The Golden Serpent" of the 1988 series.
