Law & Order - Season 15 (2004 – 2005)

The fifteenth season of Law & Order saw many new faces added to the cast. Dennis Farina joined the show as Detective Joe Fontana, replacing Jerry Orbach, who left the series after Season 14 due to health issues and would take a less stressful job on the new spinoff, Law & Order: Trial by Jury (sadly, Orbach passed away after only filming 2 episodes of that series). Jesse L. Martin took a brief hiatus to reprise his role as Tom Collins in the big screen version of the musical Rent. Within the show, Det. Ed Green was shot in the line of duty, and would spend the last four episodes of the season recovering from his wounds. He was temporarily replaced by Det. Nick Falco, portrayed by Michael Imperioli (who had appeared nine years earlier in Season 6 of the series as a different character).

On the "Order" side, ADA Serena Southerlyn (Elisabeth Röhm) was fired by DA Arthur Branch (Fred Dalton Thompson) at the end of episode 13, "Ain't No Love," for being too much of an advocate, which he felt was not appropriate for the "cold-blooded," "blind and even-handed" prosecutor's office. Although this left the door open for her to potentially return as a defense attorney, she never did, ending her run tied for first (along with Alana de la Garza) in ADA appearances in the original series with 85. She was replaced by ADA Alexandra Borgia (Annie Parisse), who would go on to have the shortest run in the series as an ADA. Like Jerry Orbach and S. Epatha Merkerson, Parisse was another regular cast member who had appeared on the show earlier as another character, a stripper in Season 12.

Law & Order debuted its third spinoff, Law & Order: Trial by Jury in the middle of Season 15, and the new show had one crossover each with its older siblings Law & Order and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Revolvers

Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose

Detective Joe Fontana (Dennis Farina) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose as his service weapon. Although the Model 19 was not on the NYPD approved carry list, Fontana (like Dennis Farina) had started his career in the Chicago Police Department, and may have been grandfathered in.

Submachine Guns

Rifles / Carbines

MGC M16

US troops are seen armed with what are likely MGC M16 replicas in "Paradigm" (S15E01). Captain Clark Wallace (Bryan Scott Johnson) is seen with what is likely a slung MGC replica in a photo in "Enemy" (S15E10).

The MGC M16 Assault rifle: a non firing metal replica built by the Model Gun Corp of Japan and one of the most used non firing replicas of the M16 in movies and television. The 'forward assist' on the early models like the one imaged here are bolt inserts to keep the receiver together. Modern MGC M16 replicas have improved by third parties over the years (like adding A1 flash hiders) making it more accurate to the real thing making it harder for 'Connoisseurs' to identify.

Remington 700

A Remington 700 is found in "License to Kill" (S15E17). Det. Fontana describes it as a "bolt-action Remington Model 700," and claims he used to hunt with one as a kid.

Trivia

RAH-66 Comanche

An RAH-66 Comanche scout/attack helicopter makes a cameo flying around an Army base in "Paradigm" (S15E01). This is almost definitely a CGI model, as the Comanche program had been cancelled by the Army months before the episode was produced.
