V

Humans vs. Dracs
Some conflict
of interest
What resource
are they fighting over?
habit able
In the distant future, as the galaxy is being colonized, humanity goes to war against the Dracs, a reptilian race from the planet Draco as both races fight over the control of many worlds.
Small tortoise
Reptiles are meat-eaters
worm
or snake-like creature
They both crash on a habitable planet.

Shared knowledge and effort may be necessary to survive.
Meteor showers of fire.
They initially try to kill each other.
The human is captured trying to steal the Drac’
Drac’s food
They can communicate only a little bit at first.
In Hollywood, the alien always learns to speak English
instead of vice versa.
We have a failure to communicate.
Survival becomes a common interest.
asked (ask /t/)
stopped (stop /t/)
Willis

Moral of the movie
Collaboration is better than competition…
Respect your enemy.
Communication can prevent war or build a respectful relationship that may lead to peace and trade (living rather than killing).
Things in common
can lead to peace
Focus on similarities rather than differences
Pregnant “man” was a humor moment and a plot twist
WW I
soldiers were not motivated to fight each other
camaraderie
War of ideology
Sniper, your job is to start the fight and keep it going.
