Story: The Magnificent Ferengi
Written By: Ira Steven Behr & Hans Beimler
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
The best Ferengi focused episode by far. I’ve said it before, but unlike many fans I often enjoy the Ferengi episodes on DS9, but most fans who would disagree with me on that one have to admit that this one is pretty entertaining. Ishka, Quark and Rom’s moogie, is captured by the Dominion; it is up to them to save her. They assemble a team of Ferengi for a rescue mission including Nog, Brunt, Gaila, and Leck and create a plan for a prisoner exchange. Sisko agrees to use Keevan, the Vorta captured in “Rocks and Shoals”, to be the prisoner exchanged for Ishka. But things get even stickier when Gaila accidently shoots and kills Keevan.
