Storyline

The leader of the Ferengi, Grand Nagus Zek and his son Krax arrive at DS9. Quark and his brother, Rom are in awe and quickly arrange for everything Zek needs. Zek praises Quark's business instinct, but Quark fears for the worst; thinking Zek wants to take over his bar for free, and won't take no for an answer. Instead, Zek 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)

A rare funny episode...
14 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The first season of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" was generally a deadly serious and tremendously under-emotive. So, "The Nagus" clearly stands out because it is so different in style.

The show begins with the Grand Nagus (Wallace Shawn) arriving on the station. This sends Quark into a dither because he assumes this Ferengi leader is out to steal his club. However, the venerable Grand Nagus actually has a more sinister plan--one that comes as a huge surprise to everyone. The first part of his plan is a total surprise, as he appoints Quark his successor! What's the second part? See the show to find out for yourself.

This is a light-hearted and rather silly episode but also one that is rather enjoyable--especially since it allows Quark, his brother and nephew an opportunity for character development.
