The sonic shower reminds me of the movie "Andromeda Strain". When the scientists enter the laboratory for the first time. They go through this lengthy clean-room procedure to get rid of any germs they may have. After they strip naked; they enter a booth that blasts them with high-intensity light that vaporizes the top layer of their skin. Taking with it any sweat or germs. Sounds like a shower-sized microwave oven. Fun.
Which is kind of what T'Pol did on Enterprise, for the T&A quotient.
