Trivia

Jeffrey Combs has the distinction of portraying eight different characters on Star Trek series. He has played the roles of Brunt, Weyoun, Shran, Tiron, Kevin Mulkahey, Penk, Krem, and a holosuite guest. He is one of only five actors to play seven or more different characters in the Star Trek franchise, the others being Randy Oglesby, J.G. Hertzler, Vaughn Armstrong and Thomas Kopache. Coincidentally, Combs has appeared in Star Trek with all four of those actors. See more »

Ferengi culture seems to have developed a well-defined sense of female fashion, highly distinct from the way males dress, which is odd in a culture where women have never been able to wear clothes. See more »

Quotes

Odo: I'm glad you had a pleasant evening.
Quark: You're mocking me, aren't you?
Odo: And you're being a little overly sensitive.
Quark: I've only been a male again for six hours. My hormones must still be out of balance. My emotions are raging out of control.
Odo: Is there anything I can do?
Quark: Would you mind... Giving me... A hug?
Odo: A hug?
Quark: Just a small one.
[Odo nods his approval]
Quark: Thank you!

Love me some Ferengi...but this one missed the mark.

At times painful, this episode was not great...but any chance to hang out with Ferengi - I'm there.
