Briggs/Phelps would look over photos of IMF team members, selecting only those suited for the mission (usually the regular cast) and putting aside the rejected photos. Briggs/Phelps would also select one to three additional IMF members (as guest stars) in a specific mission, usually an expert in the type of work needed to carry out the mission, such as a circus performer to stage an eye-opening show as to create a distraction to break out someone in prison nearby or a doctor to carry out an non-lethal injection to temporarily disable the target. Once done, Briggs/Phelps would leave the binder on the table. In later seasons, Phelps selected IMF quasi-mode organizations, such as The Hartford and Globe Repertory Companies--a team of up to twenty workers dedicated to a specific part of the mission, such as fake prison guards or acting as a crew of a submarine or caterers of a "party." Again, as in the tape sequence, the footage of some dossier sequences may appear in more than one episode. In Season 1, Martin Landau was credited as "Special Guest Star" as his dossier picture was shown (and, of course selected), however he was made permanent cast member for Seasons 2 and 3. In "Action!" (when she recovered the tape), Carter is not shown selecting the IMF members, however her usual picture was already laid out anyway--thus she would technically be the first and only IMF team member to "select" herself in the dossier sequence. Beginning with Season 3, the dossier sequence was used less often, only to select a special IMF "guest," the repertory companies or a special animal, until this segment was eliminated by the end of Season 4, though the IMF continued to receive support in later seasons when needed. (An example was when people dressed up in a falsified 1930s city in the Season 6 episode "Encore.")
