Hoshe-Igga was a military leader who was known to history as having waged a great confrontation travelling through the Magellan sector, known as the Hoshe Offensive. The outcome of Hoshe-Igga's campaign was unavoidable in hindsight, as the participants from Earth were unprepared, not having been aware of the existence of the transporter.
James T. Kirk considered Hoshe-Igga's case when contemplating the nature of the "no-win scenario" while attending Starfleet Academy Command School. Much like Kirk's failures in the Kobayashi Maru scenario, the mismatched oppponents of the Hoshe Offensive made any other outcome difficult, if not impossible. (TOS novel: The Kobayashi Maru)
