Quotes

[the Ferengi have simulated a battle with Jem'Hadar, rather unsuccessfully]
Rom: I think we're getting better.
Nog: No, you're not. This is the eighth run-through, and you haven't been able to hit a single Jem'Hadar.
Nog: [to Leck] And you shot Moogie!
Leck: I saw we weren't gonna rescue her, so I put her out of her misery.

Very funny Ferengi episode
6 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Quark's mother has been captured by the Dominion and he has to assemble a team to rescue her. Does he recruit Klingons? Does he recruit Nausicaan mercenaries? No, he recruits an unlikely group of Ferengis including Rom, Nog, Ex-liquidator Brunt, his cousin Gaila the arms dealer and Leck who isn't interested in money but likes a challenge especially if he gets to kill somebody. After practicing in the holosuite it is clear that they can't beat the Jem'Hadar in combat; they'll just have to do things the Ferengi way; arrange a deal. The arrange to swap captured Vorta Keevan and head to Empok Nor to make the trade. When the Jem'Hadar arrive there are rather more of them than the Ferengis can deal with… they certainly have to hope the Dominion will stick to the arranged deal. It looks like they will… until Rom lets slip that the reward the Negus offered for return of his beloved Ishka was more than twice what Quark had told them. Unimpressed Gaila tries to shoot Quark but kills the Vorta by mistake. They must come up with something quickly if they are to get out of there alive!

As with most Ferengi led episodes this was more humorous than the average episode. It was amusing watching them run around hopelessly, especially when they thought their prisoner had escaped. I thought Christopher Shea was great as Keevan the deadpan Vorta. The solution they came up with after he was killed was hilarious, although I won't spoil it here.
