Episode propaganda

Zek (Wallace Shawn), the Ferengi grand nagus, pays a visit to Deep Space Nine and moves in to Quark's (Armin Shimerman) quarters, where he undertakes an important project. After displacing Quark from his home, the Nagus reveals that he has been rewriting the Rules of acquisition. Overcome with excitement, Quark and his brother Rom (Max Grodénchik) rush to read the volume, thrilled to have a head start on what they think will be the path to unimaginable profit. But they are shocked to read the first rule: If they want their money back, give it to them.

Intelligence report

The Ferengi stories are not always successful because they are more stereotyped than the other races. This story is one of those less successful episodes (one reason why it got a G rating).
