So, something odd I noticed about the exchange between Daniels and Archer in “Zero Hour.” Daniels, in an effort to make sure that Archer doesn’t die on the Xindi weapon, suggests that neither Reed or Sato are important to the future of humanity and they should be sacrificed over him. Which is pretty shocking, particularly in regards to Hoshi. She is the inventor of the universal translator, which allows for diplomacy of other species, which in turn allows the Federation to grow in numbers. We see the first steps towards a universal translator – and the Federation – occur during the Coalition of Planets conference, which takes place a whole year later after the Xindi crisis. If anything, this makes her just as important to the founding of the Federation as Archer and one of the most important members if the crew. Not to mention that Hoshi is one of Archer's closest friends. So why did Daniels disregard that? Did he really believe that the future would not be significantly altered if she had died and wasn't the inventor of the universal translator?
