Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

I can see how a Hoshi/Reed romance could work. They're just too shy to reveal their possible feelings to each other quickly. That would also give both characters some screen time.

Back in the day, I too thought Reed / Hoshi romance could have worked, but after re-watching "Proving Ground," I totally saw Talas as the perfect woman for Malcolm. The two definitely had the spark.

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Well it makes me feel good that my random injecting of Hoshi into the other thread has lead to a revival of Hoshi-interest

You know it's funny, with all this talk about pairing characters together, it seemed to me as if Travis and Hoshi was something that was always on the back burner but never delivered. For example, when she gets kidnapped by that telepathic alien, the first person she thinks about is Travis. Oh wells, I guess we will never know

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Not a huge fan of this show, but Linda is incredibly hot! Arguably the most beautiful woman to have a regular role in a Star Trek show, in my opinion. Call me shallow, but seeing her dressed as an alien in Civilization was my second favourite moment of the show (the first being Andreas Katsulas showing up in Cogenitor, for somewhat different reasons). The first episode I saw was Fight or Flight, which left me hopeful she might have an important role, but that didn't seem to happen.

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

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.

You can't deny it, guys... Archer was always a tad gay for Trip. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I always thought it to be the other way around. Trip died for his "Cap".

Bogart was 25 years older than Bacall, and they were the loves of each other's lives. Love knows no age limits.

I think Hoshi and Archer had some great scenes together -- "Broken Bow," "Zero Hour," and that great opening scene in "Babel One" when she's teaching him to insult like a Tellarite.

I don't think Archer would have considered it proper to get involved with a member of his crew. But under other circumstances, I think they would make a sweet couple.

And J. Howard Marshall II was 62 years older than Anna Nicole Smith, I fail to see your point...

I agree, Archer and Hoshi had a great, very warm father/daughter thing going on.

Hell with Hoshi/Reed or Hoshi/Archer, I'm a Hoshi/Skywalker 'shipper.

I really wish Hoshi had gotten more attention, but that complaint goes hand-in-hand with the lack of attention paid towards Reed and (especially) Travis, too.

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Damn, Hoshi is being paired up with every male in the show...!

Let me throw in a few Trek characters, that haven't been mentioned:

*Sisko-I was thinking the elder Sisko at first, but I'll say Jake/Hoshi...

*Shran-She did have a thing for aliens...

*Mirror Hoshi/Dukat-Hmmm....(I would like to see some good fanfiction on that...or a Trek otherworlds-like story)...

*Hoshi/Bashir-He would have went for her...while still going for Jadzia...

I second that. She was very under rated and under utilized.
I think Linda was a much better actress than Jolene. But since she didn't have "The Figure," shall we say, she got a lot less attention from the writers (read: Bermaga) and so her character was largely ignored.

They could have done so much more with Hoshi, starting with dumping the whole idea of a portable universal translator -- so she would actually be needed during first contacts. As it was, she was pretty much put out of her job as linguist and left her with nothing more to do but open "hailing frequencies."

I did like that she became something of a protocol officer in the Andorian/Romulan arc in season 4. Shame that wasn't introduced sooner.

Well, I don't know Berman's and Braga's taste in women, but I can't see anything wrong with Linda's figure.

But then, I've never been a fan of big boobs.

Well, she certainly doesn't have Jolene's curves.
BTW, Blalock's boobs aren't really that big either...

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Even if there was no romance between between Archer and Hoshi I would have liked to have seen their friendship explored more. Hoshi, like Uhura, was sadly underutilized (as has been said before). I guess it just makes the Hoshi-centered episodes more cherish-able.
