"Star Trek: Enterprise: Vanishing Point (#2.10)" (2002)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [about using the transporter] Your molecules get pulled apart.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Then they get put back together again.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Do you know how many molecules you're made up of?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Lots.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: All right, how many?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: A-a-a few trillion.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: That's a pretty big jigsaw puzzle! What if some of the pieces get put in the wrong place? You know, I bet a lot of them look real similar.

Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: How do those molecules feel? All in the right place?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I'll let you know.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: I'm not convinced that the transporter put me back the way it's supposed to.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: "All the king's horses and all the king's men."

Dr. Phlox: Not a single biomolecular anomaly.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: No? How about this?
[she points at a birthmark on her nose]
Dr. Phlox: A subcutaneous pigmentation.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: That's not where it used to be; it was a good centimeter lower.
Dr. Phlox: Well, it looks lovely where it is now.

Dr. Phlox: I can promise you one thing: you're in perfect health. You're neither transparent nor porous.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: You won't put this on my medical record, will you?
Dr. Phlox: As far as I'm concerned, I didn't even see you come in here.

Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: You're upside down, Ensign.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I was taught never to contradict a superior officer.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: Ever since I used that transporter, nothing has been the way that it's supposed to be. I couldn't translate a simple bimodal syntax, but Crewman Baird could. Crewman Baird doesn't know the first thing about our linguistic database. And Captain Archer told me to stay in my quarters... but my mirror doesn't want to give me a solid reflection, and my shower can't decide whether to bounce off me or go through me. And nobody wants to talk to me.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: Do you have a mirror?
[after her "invisibility"-ordeal]

Ensign Hoshi Sato: And I was sure I was gonna be the next Cyrus Ramsey.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Cyrus who?


"Star Trek: Enterprise: In a Mirror, Darkly: Part 2 (#4.19)" (2005)
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: [making love to Archer] I've n-never been the consort of an emperor before. Is there anything I need to know?
Commander Archer: I think you've, uh... I think you've got the basics down.

[Sato and T'Pol are engaged in a knife fight]
Lt. Commander T'Pol: I'm surprised you're not exhausted from all the beds you've jumped into recently.
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: Commander Tucker told me I should give you a few pointers in that area.

Commander Archer: [of the "other" universe] A lot of the names are the same, but... their history has been rewritten. Instead of building an Empire, Earth... became part of an interspecies alliance!
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: [reading from a desktop viewer] "The United Federation of Planets"?
Commander Archer: Hm... More like a Federation of fools!

Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: These people had some strange ideas about uniforms.
[on Archer's TOS-style outfit]

Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: Can you imagine the look on the Emperor's face when he sees this ship? You'll be declared hero of the Empire. Starfleet'll have to give you a command of your own.
Commander Archer: I already have a command of my own.

[Archer plans to get rid of all the non-Terrans on his ship]
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: I hope you're not planning on getting sick anytime soon. In case you haven't noticed - your doctor is an alien.

Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: It'll only take a day for the fleet to return to Earth. Do you think the commanders will support you?
Commander Archer: They're loyal to the Emperor. They don't really care who it is.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: This is the Starship Defiant. If you don't surrender immediately, we'll begin targeting your cities. Respond.
Admiral Gardner: Where's Archer? Who the hell are you?
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: You're speaking with Empress Sato. Prepare to receive instructions.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Sleeping Dogs (#1.14)" (2002)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Took a while, but I think I finally got my space legs.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I never doubted that you'd find them.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: [trying to decipher the Klingon consoles] "pu'DaH... dak cha" - something they call 'photon torpedoes'.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Photon torpedoes? Never heard of anything like that.

[an alarm has gone off]
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Hoshi?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: It says the pressure's failing in the... j'khat bah - fusion manifold. Do you know what that means?
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: To quote our very own Mr. Tucker: it means we're dead 'n the water.

[Sato is examining some Klingon dishes]
Sub-Commander T'Pol: It's called 'gagh'. It's a Klingon delicacy. But only when they're alive.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: They look like worms.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: They *are* worms.

Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: We'll be on our way back well before we're in any danger. I for one have no interest in imploding a valuable shuttlepod.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Or three valuable officers.

[last lines]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Do you smell that?
Sub-Commander T'Pol: I don't smell anything.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Exactly.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Fight or Flight (#1.3)" (2001)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [on "Sluggo"] I shouldn't have brought her on board. Maybe I could ask the Captain to try to find a planet with an argon-rich atmosphere.
Dr. Phlox: It might be easier just to feed her to my bat.

Captain Jonathan Archer: What's wrong?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: The environmental suits, they make me a little... claustrophobic.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Claustrophobic? And you took a job on a spaceship?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: You talked me into it, remember?
Captain Jonathan Archer: I don't recall reading about any problems during your zero-G training.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Well, I just, I... I bit my lip and got through it.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Well, you're gonna have to bite your lip again.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: I'm a translator; I didn't come out here to see corpses hanging on hooks.
Dr. Phlox: It goes without saying that you're going to encounter the unexpected.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Not corpses on hooks!

Ensign Hoshi Sato: [about "Sluggo"] She needs to get back to an environment that is more suited to her.
Dr. Phlox: Mm... Perhaps someplace where she could teach.
[in reference to his earlier suggestion to Sato to take up teaching at the university]

[last lines]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [setting "Sluggo" free on a planet] This isn't exactly like the place you came from; but it's close enough. It's not that hard to adapt. You're gonna do just fine here.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Observer Effect (#4.11)" (2005)
[in the decon chamber]
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: This reminds me of my dorm room at Starfleet Training. Got into a lot of trouble at old STC.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I got kicked out.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: ...Well, you can't stop there!
Ensign Hoshi Sato: In my second month, I... I had a difference of opinion with the Company Commander.
[pause]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I broke his arm!
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Can I ask why?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Poker.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: You broke his arm playing cards?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: He tried to shut down a game I was running for some of the recruits and a couple of the training staff.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Hold on. You ran a floating poker game at STC?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: The way the regulations are worded, gambling was an honor violation only if it took place during duty hours. So I ran the game on weekends. One night my CC showed up, tried to sweep all the chips off the table, and I... well, I've a black belt in aikido. I think he was just upset that I hadn't invited him to play.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: What happened?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I got a bad conduct discharge.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: How the hell did you end up on Enterprise?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Starfleet needed language specialists, more than they needed to make an example out of me. They let me back in on probation and... here I am.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: Seriously, engineering, building things - have you always been good at that?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Mmm... When I was a kid - not so good at building. But I was a terror when it came to taking things apart. My folks used to put all our kitchen appliances on the highest shelves. One Thanksgiving - I've no idea what I was thinking, but, um - I removed every screw from this... big dining room table we had. It was so old, the wood sort of stuck together, so it stayed standing. Until my dad put the turkey down.

Alien inhabiting Cmdr. Tucker: The sensations in this host are different from the others. I'm experiencing... physical pain.
Alien inhabiting Ensign Sato: So am I.
Alien inhabiting Cmdr. Tucker: Why should any species have to endure this weakness?
Alien inhabiting Ensign Sato: Because the desire to overcome it will spur them to move beyond the limitations of the physical world.
Alien inhabiting Cmdr. Tucker: Maybe that isn't true for all species.
Alien inhabiting Ensign Sato: It was true for us.

[Hoshi is trying to break out of the decon chamber]
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: You can't break the lock-out code.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Math is just another language.

Alien inhabiting Ensign Sato: Talking is a limited form of communication for us. We're much more advanced than Humans.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Not from where I'm standing. Maybe... you've evolved into beings with abilities I can't comprehend, but you've paid a hell of a price. You've lost compassion, and empathy - things that give life meaning. If that's what it takes to be advanced... I don't want any part of it.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Vox Sola (#1.22)" (2002)
[a delegation of Kreetassans have been offended on Enterprise. Sato tries to ask them in their language about the cause]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [analyzing their answer with the universal translator] "You eat like you mate"?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: You sure that thing's working?

Ensign Hoshi Sato: 'Hwajat', their word for 'eat'...
Ensign Travis Mayweather: What about it?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: With emphasis on the first syllable, *hwa*-jat, it means 'to mate'.
Ensign Travis Mayweather: I can see how that might cause some confusion over dinner.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: [analyzing the alien's communication pattern] Our translation matrix isn't designed for this. Look at it: it's more like a calculus equation than a language.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Mathematics is sometimes considered a form of language.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: All I see is numbers, codes...
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Any code can be broken.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: You don't think I belong on Enterprise, do you?
Sub-Commander T'Pol: On the contrary. It would be a great loss to Starfleet if you were not a part of this crew. If you feel I've been unfair to you, I apologize. But I hold you to a high standard, Ensign, because I know you're capable of achieving it.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Broken Bow: Part 1 (#1.1)" (2001)
[Archer is trying to coax Sato into joining his crew as Communications Officer, with a recording of Klingon language]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: What do you know about these... Klingons?
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Not much. An empire of warriors - with eighty poly-guttural dialects constructed on an adaptive syntax.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [referring to the recording] Turn it up.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Think of it. You'd be the first Human to talk to these people. Do you really want someone else to do it?

Ensign Hoshi Sato: [translating Klaang's Klingon talk] He s... he says his... his wife has grown ugly?

[Klaang is shouting in Klingon]
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Do you know how to tell him to shut up?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [to Klaang] SHUT UP!

Sub-Commander T'Pol: Perhaps you'd like to go to your quarters and lie down.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Ponfo mirann.
[Vulcan insult]
Sub-Commander T'Pol: I was instructed to speak English on this voyage. And I'd appreciate it if you'd respect that.

[Klaang has been abducted out of sickbay by Suliban, a stealth-capable race]
Capt. Jonathan Archer: We've got state-of-the-art sensors. Why the hell didn't we detect them?
Ensign Travis Mayweather: Mr. Reed thought he detected something right before we lost power.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: The starboard sensor logs recorded a spatial disturbance.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Looks more like a glitch.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Those weren't glitches in sickbay.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Exile (#3.6)" (2003)
Captain Jonathan Archer: Do I have to tell you to stay on your toes?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I think that falls under the goes-without-saying category, sir.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Did you bring a phase pistol?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I'll keep it under my pillow.

Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: I ran every scan in the book. There's no sign of any intruder anywhere on the ship.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Maybe our sensors missed something.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: I went through all the logs for the past 24 hours. To say they were uneventful would be an understatement. This is good news!
Ensign Hoshi Sato: That I'm imagining things?

Tarquin: [on the graves in his backyard] The first one was Morianna Taal. She was my first companion. Like you, she had a unique mind.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: And the other three?
Tarquin: Companions as well. When I lost Morianna, I began to search for another. And another... Sometimes I don't know what is worse - being alone or having to bury the people I've come to care about.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: [threatening to smash Tarquin's telepathic enhancer] Now, undo whatever you've done to my ship, or you will never contact anyone again with this thing.
Tarquin: An empty threat, Hoshi. As long as you're with me, I won't need to contact anyone else.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: As long as I'm with you? Another sixty, seventy years, then what? What'll you do when I'm grave number five out there? Without this, you will never find another companion. You will be alone for the rest of your life!


"Star Trek: Enterprise: The Council (#3.22)" (2004)
Captain Jonathan Archer: How's your Insectoid these days?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: It depends on which dialect. There are 67.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Is that all?

[an Insectoid is chattering something to Archer, who waits for Hoshi to translate it]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: You don't wanna know.

[Archer and Hoshi are led to the Xindi Council]
Captain Jonathan Archer: Kinda feels like being called to the principal's office.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I was never called to the principal's office.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I was once.

Captain Jonathan Archer: I got sent to the principal's office for passing a note in class. It was to Katy Bentley. I was inviting her to a party a friend of mine was throwing.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: What'd she say?
Captain Jonathan Archer: Funny thing - she'd already turned me down; but after I got in trouble...
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Some women can't resist the bad boys.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Silent Enemy (#1.12)" (2002)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Breaking a Vulcan encryption code would be easier than this.
[on her attempts to find out about Reed's favorite food]

Ensign Hoshi Sato: I don't suppose scanning his taste buds would help?
Dr. Phlox: Medically speaking, there's no accounting for taste.

[last lines]
[Reed is cutting his birthday cake]
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Pineapple! That's my fav...
[stunned, he looks at the others]
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: How on Earth did you know?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: We have our sources.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: The Catwalk (#2.12)" (2002)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: You're the Captain. Can't you order the storm to calm down a little?
Captain Jonathan Archer: I'll see what I can do.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: A few days in this place should cure anyone of claustrophobia.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Your quarters'll probably feel like a ballroom after this.

[the senior officers are playing cards with rather crude antes]
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: I see your strawberry shortcake... and I'll raise you... one pineapple cobbler.
[he puts a small package in the middle of the table, as does Ensign Sato]
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Broccoli?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I'm out of desserts.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Dear Doctor (#1.13)" (2002)
[Sato is exercising her Denobulan language skills, commenting about Phlox's developing relationship with Cutler]
Dr. Phlox: [in Denobulan] Do you have any advice?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [in Denobulan] I think you make a very cute... washboard.
Dr. Phlox: I beg your pardon?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [laughing] Couple! A cute couple!

[Dr. Phlox is scanning a Menk, on which the latter asks something in his language]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: He wants to know what you're doing.
Dr. Phlox: Have you learned enough Menk to explain a molecular bio-scan?
[Sato replies to the Menk in Menk]
Crewman Elizabeth Cutler: What'd you say?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Told him the Doctor was looking inside of him.

Ensign Hoshi Sato: Tik-tik.
[Menk for 'Thank you']


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Regeneration (#2.23)" (2003)
Sub-Commander T'Pol: They're disrupting our plasma network. Main power is failing.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: We're losing weapons.
Captain Jonathan Archer: They set us up.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: They're hailing us. Audio only.
Captain Jonathan Archer: This is Captain...
The Borg (voice): You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

Dr. Phlox: Why are you wearing a phase pistol?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Oh, it's... Lieutenant Reed's idea. If you come near me, I'm supposed to shoot you.
Dr. Phlox: I hope you'll use the stun setting.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: In a Mirror, Darkly: Part 1 (#4.18)" (2005)
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: Tradition says that whatever... belonged to the previous captain... is yours for the taking.
[moves close to Archer]
Commander Jonathan Archer: [grabs her a little roughly] I've never been one to argue with tradition.
[kisses her hard on the lips]

Commander Jonathan Archer: Tell me what I want to know!
[the Tholian is screeching something in his language]
Lieutenant Hoshi Sato: [translating] Something about... your 'maternal ancestor'.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Rogue Planet (#1.18)" (2002)
Lt. Malcolm Reed: I'm picking up a power signature near the equator. There's a ship down there.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Try to hail them.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: No response.
Cmdr. Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Maybe they wanna be left alone. A single ship on a dark planet? Maybe they're on their honeymoon.

[Tucker and Reed are preparing to go camping on the planet]
Cmdr. Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: If the bugs glow in the dark, at least you can tell when they crawl into your sleeping bag.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: One more reason I am happy to spend the night in my own bunk. Anyway, it's the things you can't see that I'd be worried about.
Lt. Malcolm Reed: Like those bore worms.
Cmdr. Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Bore worms?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Apparently they crawl into your ear to lay their eggs. Have a nice night!


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Broken Bow: Part 2 (#1.2)" (2001)
[Enterprise has taken Klaang safely home]
Klingon Chancellor: ChugDah hegh. Volcha va.
Captain Jonathan Archer: [aside, to Sato] I'll take that as a thank you.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I don't think they have a word for 'thank you'.
Captain Jonathan Archer: What did he say?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: You don't wanna know.

[Last Lines]
Captain Jonathan Archer: I hope nobody is in a big hurry to get home. Starfleet seems to think that we're ready to begin our mission. I understand there's an inhabited planet a few light years from here.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: We've detected it, sir. Sensors show a nitrogen sulfide atmosphere.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Probably not humanoids?
Captain Jonathan Archer: That's what we're here to find out. Prepare to break orbit, and lay in a course.
Ensign Travis Mayweather: I'm reading an ion storm on that trajectory, sir. Should I go around it?
Captain Jonathan Archer: We can't be afraid of the wind, Ensign. Take us to warp four.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Babel One (#4.12)" (2005)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: The food on this ship isn't fit for animals! That mangy pet of yours would probably taste better. You can either take me home or find a new chef, it's that simple. Oh, something else: I want new quarters.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Is that so?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: For one thing, my room is too small! There are plasma conduits running across the ceiling. It's noisy, it keeps me up all night!
Captain Jonathan Archer: Maybe you'd sleep better in the cargo bay.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: What did you say to me?
Captain Jonathan Archer: This is a starship, not a luxury liner! If you're not satisfied with the accomodations, we can leave you behind in a shuttlepod; maybe you'll have better luck with whoever picks you up. And if you don't like Chef's food, don't eat it! From the looks of things, you should probably skip the dessert table while you're at it!
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [pauses, then smiles] That was a nice touch.
[starts laughing]
Captain Jonathan Archer: I can't believe I'm supposed to speak to their ambassador like that.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Tellarites always have a litany of complaints. It's how they start arguments with people they've just met.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Even if they have nothing to complain about?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: In that case, they'll just insult you. Whatever they say, you have to respond in kind, otherwise they'll take offense.
Captain Jonathan Archer: [scoffs] A species that actually thrives on arguing. They probably make good politicians. Thanks for the dry run.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Uh, sir - I wasn't kidding about Porthos.
Captain Jonathan Archer: You think he is mangy?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: No. But you might wanna keep him out of sight. Tellarites consider canines something of a, uh... delicacy.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: The Xindi (#3.1)" (2003)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: What do you think of our doctor, Sergeant? I imagine you don't run into many Denobulans in Duluth, Minnesota?
Sergeant Kemper: [... ] You must've gotten pretty deep into our records. I haven't lived in Duluth since junior high school.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: You may have left Duluth, but you've still got plenty of Duluth left in your inflections.
Sergeant Kemper: Excuse me?
Major Hayes: Ensign Sato's a linguist, Kemper. You give her enough time, she could probably tell you what street you grew up on.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Shockwave: Part 2 (#2.1)" (2002)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Whatever you're about to say, I don't wanna hear it; just get me a shirt.
[to Lt. Reed, after arriving topless in his quarters during a rescue attempt]


"Star Trek: Enterprise: A Night in Sickbay (#2.5)" (2002)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Feel better, Porthos.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Desert Crossing (#1.24)" (2002)
[Sato is questioning the wisdom of the Vulcans' choice of location when making first contact with the Humans]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: An alien species makes contact with the United States. It could have made a lot of other countries nervous.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: What's your point?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: It seems to me that we're gonna run into similar problems: we get invited to dinner, and before you know it, we're accused of taking sides in a war.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Contacting new worlds always involves unexpected risks. The High Command has very specific protocols regarding planetary conflicts. Eventually, Captain Archer will have to... create some directives of his own.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Cold Front (#1.11)" (2001)
[Mayweather has been left in charge of the bridge]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Aren't you gonna take the chair?
Ensign Travis Mayweather: What?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [winking to the Captain's chair] You're in command!
Ensign Travis Mayweather: [laughs sheepishly] I'm fine right here.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Haven't you ever wondered what it's like?
Ensign Travis Mayweather: I can wait till I'm promoted.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Shockwave: Part 1 (#1.26)" (2002)
Ensign Travis Mayweather: From what Commander Tucker tells me, people back home think that we're doing nothing out here but getting in trouble.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Then it's our job to let the people back home know what really happened. Anyone tries to badmouth Captain Archer in front of me is gonna get an earful, in any language they want.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Demons (#4.20)" (2005)
Nathan Samuels: These universal translators work perfectly, thanks to you.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I just updated them with a few things we picked up on the mission.
Nathan Samuels: Whatever you did, they're extremely precise. Though, when I'm listening to the Tellarite ambassador, I wish they were just a little less precise.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Terra Nova (#1.6)" (2001)
[first lines]
Ensign Travis Mayweather: This was their first view of it.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: If you didn't look too close you'd think it was Earth.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Shadows of P'Jem (#1.15)" (2002)
Captain Sopek: I want to know where that shuttlepod was going.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: What shuttlepod is that?
Captain Sopek: The one that left your launch bay nine minutes ago.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I really wouldn't know, sir, we... we get shuttlepods coming and going all the time. It's a little like Union Station around here.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Zero Hour (#3.24)" (2004)
[Enterprise is approaching Earth, as Sato enters the bridge]
Sub-Commander T'Pol: You should be in your quarters.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: With all due respect to Phlox, I wouldn't miss this for the world.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Affliction (#4.15)" (2005)
[Phlox and Sato are leaving Madame Chang's Mandarin Cafe]
Dr. Phlox: There are a lot of Starfleet people here.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: That's probably my fault. I told a few friends about the place.
Dr. Phlox: A *few*?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I'm a comm officer. If there's one thing I know how to do, it's disseminate information.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Future Tense (#2.16)" (2003)
[a Tholian ship is parting with the Enterprise, its captain screeching a final message]
Captain Jonathan Archer: What did he say?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I don't know. But I don't think he was paying you a compliment.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Bound (#4.17)" (2005)
[Sato consults Dr. Phlox about a headache]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: It's probably just stress.
Dr. Phlox: Plenty of that going around.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Or it could be our new passengers.
Dr. Phlox: The Orion females? Why should they give you a headache?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: I'm just not used to seeing guys trip over themselves like that.
Dr. Phlox: Oh, just a little healthy sexual energy. Helps keep the blood pumping.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: If you ask me, it's pumping a little too hard.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Awakening (#4.8)" (2004)
[V'Las has told Tucker in no uncertain terms that Enterprise is to leave]
Administrator V'Las: I've also contacted Admiral Gardner. I'm sure you'll be hearing from him soon. A pleasant journey.
[he disconnects]
Commander Tucker: Son of a bitch hung up on us!
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Should I try to get him back?


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Damage (#3.19)" (2004)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: My mother always wanted me to take piano lessons. Shoulda listened to her.
Ensign Travis Mayweather: It's never too late. You can start when we get home. We're getting home.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: The Breach (#2.21)" (2003)
[Dr. Phlox takes a ball of hair out of a small cage]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: What is that?
Dr. Phlox: It won't bite. It's called a tribble.
[he hands the tribble to Hoshi]
Dr. Phlox: It was extremely difficult to acquire. They're outlawed on most worlds.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: Why? Is it dangerous?
Dr. Phlox: Oh, far from it. All it's capable of doing, really, is eating and breeding. The problem is, they breed quite prodigiously.
[Phlox takes the tribble and feeds it to one of his other creatures]
Dr. Phlox: The only thing that keeps their population in check is the abundance of reptiles on their homeworld.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Singularity (#2.9)" (2002)
[Sato is preparing the meal for an impatient crew]
Ensign Hoshi Sato: That is a very complex recipe. I will not serve it till it's just right. My family's reputation is at stake!


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Minefield (#2.3)" (2002)
Ensign Hoshi Sato: [translating the aliens' message] They say they've annexed this planet in the name of something called... the 'Romalan Star Empire'?
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Romulan. It's pronounced 'Romulan'.


"Star Trek: Enterprise: Two Days and Two Nights (#1.25)" (2002)
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: What about you, Hoshi? Do anything constructive?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: As a matter of fact, I learned... several new conjugations.
[after spending the past night in bed with an alien]
