Trip will have to work with a hostile alien to save their lives in the upcoming episode 'Dawn'.
StarTrek.com today released the below official synopsis for the episode, which does not yet have an airdate, although it will likely air early next year:
Trip Tucker is alone on a test mission aboard Shuttlepod One when he is fired upon by a territorial alien and forced to land on the night side of a moon. As he tries in vain to contact Enterprise, he discovers his alien foe has also made an emergency landing nearby, and the two nemeses must contend with each other as the extremely hot rising sun threatens their survival.
'Dawn' was written by former X-Files scribe and new co-executive producer John 'Minefield' Shiban, and directed by Roxann Dawson (B'Elanna Torres). This is Dawson's fourth Enterprise episode after 'The Andorian Incident', 'Vox Sola', and 'Dead Stop'.
Two guest stars feature in the episode:
- Gregg Henry as Zho'Kaan
- Brad Greenquist as Khata'n Zshaar
Henry previously played Son'a number two Gallatin in 'Star Trek Insurrection'; he has also appeared in a recurring role on Family Law and guest-starred in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Boston Public and Fox's new sci-fi offering, Firefly.
Another returning Trek guest star, Greenquist appeared as Demmas in Voyager's 'Warlord' and Krit in DS9's 'Who Mourns For Morn?' The actor's other roles include parts in Law & Order and 'Six Feet Under.'
Most of the seven-day production schedule took place on the sets depicting the moon's exterior - apart from Connor Trinneer ('Trip' Tucker), the regular cast members were only required for two days. For the fights between Trip and Zho'Kaan, two stunt doubles, Sean Crowder and Craig Baxley Jr., took over for Trinneer and guest star Gregg Henry.
