Considered by many to be the worst episode of DS9 ever made. While still in its initial stages, the writers thought it had the makings of a classic episode. Armin Shimerman
(Quark) was accused of playing it too seriously, while the producers wanted it more comical. Shimerman hated the script, and Alexander Siddig
(Bashir) directed it too seriously, with none of the high-energy farce the writers had clearly envisioned with it. The major complaint against it was that it straddled a serious and funny story and ended up being neither one. The sheer disappointment everyone had ensured it was the show's last Ferengi episode.

Nagus? You remember my son Nog, don't you? He's the first Ferengi to join Starfleet.
I'll try not to hold that against him.
