Story: The Nagus
Written By: Ira Steven Behr
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1993

It is our first real Ferengi episode…and it gives us a great look into Ferengi culture. DS9 makes the Ferengi hilarious and fun to watch, something TNG never really captured. Wallace Shawn is great in his first performance as Zek, and all the actors playing Ferengi are terrific.
I can’t complain about this one, some people HATE Ferengi episodes, prejudice from TNG perhaps? Maybe…but I think some sci-fi fans don’t like comedy episodes, I love them, I like that these shows can be so versatile, and this episode shows how Quark could really bring the comedy to DS9, a show known for being darker and grimmer than TNG.
