Empress Hoshi Sato by Glee-chan Empress Hoshi Sato by Glee-chan
I recently got booted from a dA Star Trek group for voicing my opinions on Enterprise and Abram's Trek. I don't want to get into the details, but the majority of the reason was because I favored TOS, TNG, DS9, and VOY over ENT and Abrams. Apparently this was horrible... I guess.

Anyway I decided to do an Enterprise piece just for the hell of it. I took one of the only decent characters from that horrible show and did a picture of her. In my opinion, Hoshi, Mayweather and Phlox were the only decent characters (if you can call them that, they were generally glorified extras). But Cardboard Reed, Redneck Tucker, and Over-actor Archer got all the stories, and T'Pol was there cause her boobs were big - and is probably the worst vulcan ever to be depicted on Star Trek (in Blalock's version of emotionless was being moody and cranky....).

Just so you know, Star Trek was created by Gene Roddenberry and is owned by Paramount. That is not to say Enterprise is Star Trek. It only pretends to be... Enterprise is he brainchild of Rick Berman and Brannon Braga and any similarities to Star Trek are completely coincidental. Linda Park portrayed Hoshi Sato.

The Mirror Universe episodes had the best Hoshi bits in them. Unfortunately. Why couldn't they just have written fewer bullshit stories for Archer and T'Pol and more for Hoshi and Mayweather? At least they both get more screentime in Demons and Terra Prime, which has a much better character balance than the rest of the show.

I felt sorry for Mayweather.  All he did was sit up front, smile all big, and drive like he was some goofy chauffeur.   All he needed was a Kato uniform and talk in a stereotypical accent.  But I agree.  The minor characters had next to no screentime.  Same with Voyager, only not as bad.

I was one of several admins in that group. Part of an admins tasks is to approve or disapprove art submitted. Well, since there are several admins, that means it's more or less a vote. I said all that to say that I got booted out because I voted how I wanted. I just felt that not every thing submitted HAD to be in the gallery. Especially if it was like stick figures and such. The funny thins is that they could always over rule me... since I was one vote. But not voting with the majority made me the bad guy so they wanted me to step down. I did one better and left the group, lol. That's the whole story.

It's sort of how the original generation of fans felt when Jar-Jar Lucas took the Star Wars universe and oriented it around their kids, or grandkids. What was once an epic adventure saga is now just another series on Cartoon Network, and the desires of the older fans who made the franchise a success are ignored. You see it now with Trek, the official sci-fi adventure of the 16-25 set. If, in the next Trek movie, the captain of the Enterprise is Justin Bieber, I won't be a bit surprised.

You shouldn't have been booted for simply having a contrary opinion. What do they want, a choir? Everyone singing the same song in the same pitch? I worry about the direction of our country and our society when disagreement is not tolerated.
I for one really enjoyed Enterprise, but don't care if others didn't. Conversely, I hated the new Trek movie with its "high-school" cast and loud, flashy, empty plot--and don't care if others liked it. When you grow up in a big family, you quickly become accustomed to disagreement and a practical, "live-and-let-live" attitude.
As a fan, Glee-chan, you are as entitled to your opinion(s) as anyone else.
Really like your "Empress Hoshi" picture. One of my favorites from the show. :)

Thanks you so much. I'm glad you support me. My views on Enterprise have soften since the time I've done this picture... mostly because my hatred for Abram's Trek has filled it up. Now all of a sudden some of the dumbness of Enterprise doesn't seem bad anymore.

One thing I liked about the Terran Empire, their women's military Uniforms. I wonder if the Midriff trend went well into the Star Trek Original movies Era. (Sorrows of Empire, reign of Hoshi Sato III) I'd love to see the Mirror take on those Red Uniforms.
