The not-so-Magnificent Six
18 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Throughout the run of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", the Ferengi were used intermittently as comic relief. In other words, after a few cerebral or galaxy-changing shows, they often tossed in a funny Ferengi one. Now that I am re-watching the series, I have really come to appreciate these Ferengi episodes.

The title of this show is a variation on the movie title "The Magnificent Six" and the idea is strongly inspired by movies like this. It seems that somehow Moogie (Quark and Rom's mother) has been taken prisoner by the Dominion. Why? Who knows. Regardless, the guys are so upset about this that they've decided to mount a rescue mission--something that seems completely ridiculous since the Jem'Hadar are the universe's best fighters and the Ferengi...well...aren't. Can a team of six Ferengi misfits have a chance at all to not only save Moogie but their sorry butts?

This one is about what you'd expect from such a show. It's not the least bit serious and has a few nice laughs--particularly at the end. Overall, like most of the Ferengi shows, it's fun and enjoyable throughout.
