Story: The House of Quark
Written By: Ronald D. Moore and Tom Benko
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
This is a fun one. Quark gets into an altercation with a drunken Klingon, that Klingon accidentally slips and falls on his own knife. This causes some problems, he was the leader of a House…and there are questions as to who can take the house over. There are two who want it…the dead Klingon’s brother…and his widow. She cannot take claim to the house with the story Quark told…so she marries Quark in order to gain control of the house herself. It is fun. Ferengi and Klingons are hilarious together, and I think the relationship between Grilka and Quark is fantastic, as well as the few moments between Quark and Rom.
But the A-story with Quark and the Klingons is where this particular episode shines. It's a barrel of laughs and I enjoy a good Quark episode.
