Television shows have frequently taken inspiration from popular movies when it comes to story telling. Some influence is subtle, and some is obvious. In a follow up to Warp Five 101, where John Tenuto and Brandon-Shea Mutala compared "Dawn" to the film Enemy Mine, we take a look at another second season episode that has inspiration from a popular film.

In this episode of Warp Five, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Brandon Cowles and Michael Schindler in a discussion that compares the second season episode of Enterprise to the films Seven Samuari and The Magnificent Seven. We also discuss the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "The Magnificent Ferengi" as well as Steven Soderbergh's film The Good German, which has nothing to do with the conversation.
