At the mountains of assimilation?

I re-watched "Regeneration" today and I couldn't help to notice a parallel to "At the Mountains of Madness" in the early scenes:

Antartica->Arctic.
Lake's team->The research team.
Elder Things->The Borg.
Dyer & Danforth->Admiral Forest and his aide.

The events really seem to mirror the novella, even the state the Borg are found in, the probing and ensuing mayhem, help flying in too late...when Enterprise gets invollved, it becomes harder to maintain the parallel, though.

What do you think?
Am I seeing patterns were there are none?
Is it an intentional homage? A coincidence?
Are there other such instances of Enterprise so heavily (by which I mean more than a short and direct reference) adapting events from another media?
