101: Don't Mess With the Zho'Kaan

Comparing "Dawn" and Enemy Mine with John Tenuto. Throughout the 1980s, the science fiction genre dominated mainstream cinema; as a result, many new types of plots and characters appeared on the silver screen that would influence filmmakers and television creators for years to come.  One example of these ground-breaking and hugely influential sci-fi films is Wolfgang Peterson's 1985 classic, Enemy Mine. In this episode of Warp Five, Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by sociology professor and Trek expert John Tenuto to compare and contrast the season two episode of Enterprise called "Dawn" with its cinematic counterpart Enemy Mine. We come up with some other surprising ways that this film influenced Star Trek and ways in which the film may have been influenced by Star Trek itself! We also compare these to the 1968 World War II film Hell in the Pacific. Lastly, John gets some surprising new things to think about after we read feedback from two listeners.
