Storyline

Four greedy Ferengis have invaded Enterprise while the crew is unconscious. They have already confiscated numerous valuable supplies, but are still interested in more. They wake up captain Archer to get the know the whereabouts of 'the vault'. Another crew member is still awake in the decontamination chamber, Trip. He wakes T'Pol. Since the weakness of the invaders is not difficult to find, the three try to outsmart the Ferengis. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

The Ferengi never reveal their species name (at least not on camera). In fact, Ethan Phillips' character even says "Who we are is not important." This is likely to keep the continuity of canon as the Ferengi are supposedly not seen in the flesh by any Starfleet member until the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). See more »

Goofs

Archer asks Tucker to get some Phase Pistols. Tucker says the Ferengi cleaned out the armory; however, the Ferengi ship where the goods are being stored is not even 10 meters from them at this point (Krem is making Archer transfer stuff from Enterprise to the Ferengi ship). See more »

Quotes

Muk: Do I look like a Menk to you?
[referencing the inferior species of the planet Valakis, which the Enterprise crew encountered earlier that year]

Introducing the Greedy Ferengis
29 November 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When T'Pol opens an alien object found in the surface of a planet by Trip, a gas is released and the entire crew of Enterprise faints. Four Ferengi pirates - Krem, Muk, Grish and Ulis – break in Enterprise to steal the supplies and belongings in the starship and they awake Captain Archer trying to find the location of the vault. Meanwhile, Trip was in the decontamination chamber and is not affected by the gas, and wakes T'Pol. Using the greed of the quartet, Archer and Trip lure them.

"Acquisition" introduces the greedy Ferengi merchants – actually four pirates of space. The story is funny, and I loved when the crushed Krem asks T'Pol to caress his ears. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Aquisição" ("Acquisition")
