For the communications officer on Enterprise NX-01, please see Hoshi Sato.

Mister Sato was a Human of Japanese descent, and father to Earth Starfleet officer and language specialist Hoshi Sato.

In 2152, while trapped in the pattern buffer of Enterprise's transporter, Hoshi had an elaborate daydream where the crew believed she had died. Captain Archer had to contact her father and tell him the news, but couldn't put it into words the right way. When her father did understand, he told Archer to contact him again later, so Archer could speak to Hoshi's mother. (ENT: "Vanishing Point")

Although his image was part of a dream, it was Hoshi's dream, so presumably his appearance was accurate. Mr. Sato was played by Keone Young.
