Goofs

When Trip is repairing his transceiver, there is a shot of the glass dome of his shuttle reflecting a light source. Since the sun has not yet come up at that stage, it must be the reflection of a lighting equipment. See more »

Quotes

Sub-Commander T'Pol: It's a thermo-kinetic analysis of the moons. Each of them undergoes extreme temperature variations during their orbits.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Go on.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: At night, it can drop to five or even ten degrees below zero.
Captain Jonathan Archer: That doesn't sound so bad.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: During the day, the temperature can rise to as high as 170 degrees.
Captain Jonathan Archer: We better hope that Trip landed on the night side.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: And that we find him before the sun rises.

"Enemy Mine" Revisited
14 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While making adaptations to the navigation system of the shuttle pod, Trip is attacked by a minor alien ship and both are forced to land on a moon of a complex system with sixty-two moons. Trip and the alien Zho'Kaan do not have universal translator and struggle against each other. But sooner they realize that they need to join forces to be rescued before the sunrise.

"Dawn" is a good rip-off of the pacifist Wolfgang Petersen's "Enemy Mine", in my opinion one of the best sci-fi ever made, with a strong and powerful message against war. Therefore the episode is good because revisits the first part of the feature displaying the same wonderful message of understanding, union and fraternity. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Amanhecer" ("Dawn")
