Review – Quartermaster

Review – Quartermaster

I enjoy quartermaster characters. They do things which we do now. We can relate to them easily.  As a result, it can feel like a job which an ordinary fan can do. This drabble was written in response to a prompt of the same name.

Plot

During the E2 timeline, in canon, Hoshi Sato gets married, and has two children, Toru and Yoshiko. But that’s about all we know.

We learn that Jonathan Archer wed Esilia, Travis Mayweather wed Julie McKenzie, Phlox married Amanda Cole, Tripp Tucker married T’Pol, and Malcolm Reed never wed. Major Jay Hayes‘s love life is never mentioned in the episode.

So, Hoshi married someone. But who was he? And just as importantly, how did they get together?

I cover some of this in The Three of Us.  But the idea absolutely fell into my lap and I couldn’t shake it, that Sekar Khan, the Quartermaster, would play to his own strengths. Therefore, he would court Hoshi in his own special way.

Rating

The story is rated K.

Upshot

The story dovetails with There’s Something About Hoshi, as she wears a similar dress in that one (and reminisces a bit about Sekar, although none too fondly). And that also, now, makes me wonder how things got so sour between them. But the prime timeline is different, and the dice roll another way.

I like this little drabble, and I think it conveys what I wanted well, with a good economy of words and with no loss of impact. Do you agree?
