I always hoped the writers would make this a running plot thread where she would reciprocate on in some way, things would escalate, Archer would have to gently call them on the carpet ("Fun's fun, you two, but knock it off!) and eventually they'd decided they just really liked spending time together.
It's a nice idea, but I don't think Anthony Montgomery could have pulled it off.

Well since the extent of his lines was pretty much "Aye sir", it's hard to tell.

I do think Mayweather and Sato were a missed opportunity.

I've seen Montgomery in other productions, and he definitely could have pulled it off--but not as the one-dimesnsional Travis Mayweather.

McCoy and Tonia Barrows. They had a nice chemistry in "Shore Leave." Shame we never saw her again.

Re: Couples That Should Have Been

Worf and Tasha.

Tasha was supposed to be the strong female in TNG and they never really wrote her that way. Every time they showed her as strong they immediately turned her into a victim. They even give us a hint in Skin of Evil that the writers wanted to pair her with Worf. That would have been great because she would have been a worthy rival, and he would have brought out more of her strong woman side.

Kim and Seven might have been funny. And I think there's a peculiar logic to it. Kim is the most non-threatening heterosexual male in the universe, and Seven is a dominating mother figure for him.

Also Riker/Ro would have been fun for an 'occasional fling' sort of situation, because then Ro would have been the dominating one in the relationship, and we could see Riker get treated the way he treats other women.

Yes I like the idea of Kim getting turned on being bossed around by 7 who is using him to explore the physical aspects of humanity. I like this idea very much.
