Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

I believe they had originally intended for Reed to be gay, but ultimatly decided against it.

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Badger, I hope you write a confident Hoshi. A Gambler needs to appear confident not timid.

Hoshi has so much potential and in the hands of a competent writer as yourself she could shine.

Once thought of a three parter of Hoshi and Red going on a mission for Star Fleet, Section 31 and the vulcans to gather some intellligence the mission would involve hoshi's ability as a gambler and Reeds ability as a body guard (always thought reed was a bit more dangerous than shown since he had been a covert agent for section 31.)

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

And what a great match she'd have been for Malcolm (yup, I'm a Reed/Sato 'shipper!)
No, I really disagree. I think Malcolm and Hoshi are too similar to have found any romance together. Plus the fact that he had several opportunities to respond to her, (like when he misunderstands her interest in his favourite food, when he sees her topless, etc.). He doesn't respond because he doesn't fancy her. He also speaks to her in a tone of voice that suggests he finds her a little annoying. If there's anyone he fancies, it's T'Pol; he makes that clear in 'Shuttlepod One'.

There's an obvious problem with only having two main female characters! They definitely should have written others in. We want to see romance but only believable romance. I can imagine Hoshi having a secret passion for the Captain that she can never really act on.

Hoshi's cute but very neurotic. I think she makes an interesting, though predictable character; there have been times when I've been tired of her whining and negative attitude.

^ Reeds failure to take an overt interest in her would have more to do with the difference in their ranks than a lack of interest.

True but surely you'd see the conflict in his face; you'd see the way he looked at her, spoke to her, etc and understand that he wants to but can't. You'd get the impression that his character was conflicted. But you don't see that because, as I said, I just don't think he fancies her. I don't think she fancies him either. There's no vibe either way on either part. It's just us trying to pair them off. Remember the guy she sleeps with on Risa? That's obviously her type.

Reed seems to be a bit of an immature kind of man from the perspective of personal relationships, unlike Trip who genuinely falls in love with T'Pol. I think Reed probably just lives in a fantasy world, that's why it would have been interesting to see him actually meet someone, so he could mature romantically. But he doesn't get the chance.

As for being gay, bisexual or ambigous, you can certainly read that into him. He really comes alive when he has that fight with Major Hayes. Certainly no female makes him react that passionately!

I just 'ship for Hoshi and Malcolm because the scenes we did see them in had a nice chemistry, IMO. There was a training session with hand weapons, the mess hall scene in Silent Enemy, and when Hayes prepares to lead the MACOs in rescuing her in Zero Hour, Reed wants to go along because Hoshi is his friend. Clearly, he does care about her.

Oh yes, agreed; they all really care for each other. They're a family.

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Guess I am a fan of a Hoshi/Reed elationship. the characters seemed to fit together. both coming from a reserved culture but quiet but with something beneith the surface.

Theirs woulld have been a quiet long time advance into a relationship. but once they became a couple they would be inseperable.

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

^ Hoshi and T'Pol should have been those mandatory trademark MU lesbians in IAMD, if you ask me.

But Hoshi/T'Pol never developing a true close friendship in the prime universe was a huge disappointment After all they shared that mind meld and Hoshi saw private TnT stuff. The writers could have made something out of it, but noooo...

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Last damned thing I would want to see would be a Hoshi/T-Pol Lesbian fling.

Personally in my opinion the suugeestion is offensive and disgusting.

I believe the two characters should be treated with dignity and respect. suggestions of Slash for shock effect doesn't cut it.

I would feel the same at a suggestion of a homosexual relationship or fling between two of the male characters in the series.

This not a flame just a personal opinion post.

Re: The Ultimate HOSHI SATO appreciation thread.

Sudden outburst of Hoshi appreciation made me wanna bump this thing. Lets hear it for Hoshi Sato, ladies and gentleman!

Some pics of Linda Park looking yummy...



And a little offtopic bonus - Grace Park!

Agreed. There was a time or two I thought the show was going to develop something along those lines, but they never followed up. Too bad - I think it could have been fun, and helped us learn more about both characters.
