Quark is going to die and Kira is Pregnant!
15 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Quark returns from Ferenginar he has bad news; a medical exam showed he has an incurable disease and will be dead within six days. Following Ferengi tradition he puts his dessicated remains up for sale and is shocked when they sell for five hundred bars of latinium, this means he will die a successful business man. Just as he is celebrating he hears that a mistake has been made and he will not die after all. When he learns that the person who bought his remains was Brunt and that he has no intention of letting Quark out of his contract he is in trouble. He has too choices; he can break the contract and be both ruined and shunned by all Ferengis or he can have himself killed so Brunt can get his merchandise. Being a good Ferengi he opts for the latter and asks Garak to kill him in a way that is painless and that he won't see coming. As he sleeps he he finds himself in the Ferengi afterlife... or at least he thinks he does, he is in fact dreaming and what happens in his dream persuades him that it is better to be broke than to be dead. Brunt is quite pleased to be able to shut the bar and take all of Quark's assets but soon after Quark learns that he has other assets; his friends who give him the items needed to reopen. In a secondary story Dr. Bashir, Kira and Keiko return from the Gamma Quadrant after a shuttle accident. Keiko was injured and the only way to save her and her baby was to transfer the baby to Kira, something which is a shock for Chief O'Brien.

This was an enjoyable episode, Armin Shimerman did a fine job as Quark, he portrayed his quickly changing moods in a believable manner, Jeffrey Combs also did a good job as Quark's nemesis Brunt. While not as good as the main plot the story of Kira's surprise pregnancy was okay and will presumably be a more important part of future episodes.
