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
