Glad to have found this thread. Hoshi was one of my favs and I was disappointed she was so underused. I read the ENT novel "Rosetta" simply because Hoshi was the main character but the book wasn't that good. As for pairings I think Archer and Hoshi should have gotten together. It hinted that there was a sort of friendship there. Even if Archer would have developed feelings for T'Pol he would never hurt Trip. So I think an Archer/Hoshi pair would have been good. Start off as friend/mentor then move it along. Just my humble opinion.
