The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.
 
Is it just me, or all you ever see on this board is Trip, Trip, Trip and T'Pol, T'Pol, T'Pol with some occasional Archer?

Well I think it's time we pay homage to NX-01's resident prodigy, girl genius, wonder woman and a bona fide cutie - the one Ensign Hoshi Sato.

Heck, in the MU, this feisty little piece of eye candy from Kyoto, Japan even runs The Empire!

I second that. She was very under rated and under utilized.

I agree, she is one of my favorites!

She is very cute and unterutilized. At least she got more episodes than Travis.

You know what surprises me about this thread?

It wasn't started by od0_ital.

I also was very disappointed at the short shrift Hoshi got. Linda's an excellent actress and was very consistent in her portrayal of Hoshi.

There were so many lost opportunities... Hoshi's dealings with T'Pol in Vox Sola and Sleeping Dogs suggested there would be a mentoring relationship. But no. :rolleyes:
Scenes with Malcolm in various episodes (including one deleted scene from the DVDs), suggested the potential for at the very least a nice friendship. No again. :rolleyes:

Some Hoshi avs from my collection:

and finally, my nod to "Mudd's Women." ;)

From information in Observer effect there was a potential Hell of a backstory for Hoshi.

A Gambler, Black belt, good with one of the older style Phaser pistols.

All things that a female gambler would need. Especially is she sat in on a game where there was a sore loser who would look for an easy taget and pick a female. Hoshi would need to be able to defend herself.

Actuallly, she sounded like she could have been a sort of buccaneer.

I like the image of a slightly dangerous, Gambling Hoshi. Rather than the timid Hoshi we got in the series.

I had a HUGE issue with the "I had a black belt" revelation. Nothing in her behavior over nearly 4 seasons ever suggested she knew how to take care of herself.
I do agree if that backstory had been there from day one, that would have been so very cool. And what a great match she'd have been for Malcolm (yup, I'm a Reed/Sato 'shipper!)

So totally cute... Now only if he weren't gay :lol:

Here are a couple of pretties from the only real Hoshi-centered ep - "Vanishing Point" (not counting that horrible "The Exile" garbage)

I think that would have worked well.

Well, Hoshi did have an important subplot, you're right.

Your quote got messed up. I didn't say anything about Vanishing Point. :)

Now that's an interesting take on the character.
I'm planning an alternate version of Enterprise for the fan fic thread, and I think I'll use this idea.

I like dangerous gambling Hoshi. She's exciting!
