Martus, an El-Aurian, tries to con a lady but gets arrested by Odo for conning a couple earlier. In his cell he meet Cos, a dying alien with a strange gambling device. Cos tells he had a string of bad luck. After Cos dies, he takes the device. Shortly after he hears the couple decided not to press charges and is released. He tries to sell the thing to Quark, but he is not overly interested. Feeling very lucky decides to become Quark's rival and opens another casino on the Promenade. Meanwhile O'Brien has constructed a racquetball court to get some physical exercise. He finds out Dr. Bashir plays it too. He even was captain of the team of his medical school. O'Brien is no match for Bashir, much to his frustration. He keeps challenging Bashir. Bashir fears for O'Briens health and tries to stop playing. Written by

Did You Know?
Originally, there were three designs for the probability machine; the handheld device (which was initially designed larger than its appearance in the final episode), the larger device created by Martus, and a four-person gambling orb for the casino. Ultimately, only the first two designs (with some elements from the third) were incorporated into the final production. See more

In return for what?
Nothing. Pure generosity.
You're enjoying this, aren't you?
