When I saw the sad news, I immediately watched my favorite The Outer Limits episode, "Soldier", written by Ellison. It had a great impact on me when I was a kid, probably the first military science fiction story shown on American television.

From the Wiki:

Eighteen hundred years in the future, two foot soldiers clash on a battlefield. A random energy weapon strikes both, and they are hurled into a time vortex. While one soldier is trapped in the matrix of time, the other, Qarlo Clobregnny (Michael Ansara), materializes on a city street in the United States in the year 1964.

"I peep."

That episode was supposedly the inspiration for "The Terminator"

Ellison sure was one of the best SF writers.
