Storyline

The leader of the Ferengi, Grand Nagus Zek and his son Krax suddenly appear in Quark's bar. Quark and his brother Rom are in awe and quickly arrange for everything Zek needs, including precious time in the holosuites. Zek praises Quark's business instinct for opening a bar near a wormhole that wasn't even discovered yet, but Quark fears for the worst. He is convinced Zek wants to take over his bar for free and the he won't take no for an answer. Zek has different plans however. He tells Quark a conference will be held in the bar where Ferengi politicians will discuss how to exploit the business opportunities in the Gamma Quadrant. Zek tells the members he won't be the Ferengi leading the Alliance into the Gamma Quadrant and will appoint his successor. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Mildly amusing look at Ferengi business practices
8 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Quark is distressed to learn that he is required by the Grand Nagus Zek to host a business conference of Ferengi politicians to discuss business opportunities in the Gamma Quadrant. It seems that hosts of such conferences always lose a lot of money. But the Grand Nagus has a surprise for Quark - he says he is too old and tired to lead the business endeavors in the Gamma Quadrant and appointments Quark to be his successor as Grand Nagus. After the announcement, Zek promptly keels over and Quark immediately becomes Grand Nagus. At first Quark is aglow with the possibility of all the money he will make but soon becomes a nervous wreck as he learns that there are some Ferengi who are very displeased with his appointment and are trying to kill him. There are some laugh out loud bits that make this episode worth watching but Wallace Shawn's performance as Zek was consistently annoying. Fortunately, Shimmerman's performance as Quark is right on target and fun to watch.
