Hi Kraucik83,Squibblings,truespock,lilyZ and all DS9 fans!

I think it would be nice if we share our passion for DS9. How? Opening an episode discussion.

Every week we could watch an episode (you can suggest it, of course!) and then talk about it!

Well, what do you think?

I think this story is unique. The A plot didn't have one human talking in it. It was a Ferengi and Klingon culture submersion and the interaction was good.

But was kills me is the councle. If they can figure out legal loop holes and cover finiancal tracks so well, why don't they get a 3rd party in there to confirm Quarks data instead of throwing accusations at each other and challenging each other to combat?

I guess because the A plot was so foriegn, the B plot had to be almost exclusivly human. It was alright. But I prefer the A plot.

I uploaded Far Beyond the Stars here so that we could do that episode next week or sometime :)

House of Quark
Haha, I love this episode. Grilka is awesome. I love the looks Bashir and Odo make when Quark first recounts his story to the crowds. XD

and there are some totally awesome Quark quotes in this episode, like:

"I am Quark, son of Keldar, and I have come to answer the challenge of D'Ghor, son of... whatever."

Quark: Now I know we're doomed.
Rom: Why, brother?
Quark: Rule of Acquisition 286: When Morn leaves, it's all over.
Rom: There is no such rule!
Quark: There should be.

I love the way Gowron's eyes sort of glaze over when Quark goes into detail about the financial fraud that ruined Grilka's family. Sorry all you CPA's out there :)

Also loved the chemistry between Quark and Grilka. The UST fairly snapped off the screen. And even more so when the UST was finally resolved in "Looking for Par'Mach in all the Wrong Places."

haha i love that too ! i love how Quark had apparently handed out PADDs to all the Klingons, and they did not look to be very at home looking through financial documents, lol ! and man, Gowron is great in this episode :D

i also love how when Quark enters the court he does his little Ferengi bow, with wrists together, and it just looks hilarious in that Klingon setting XD

I'm not a big Klingon fan myself... but I really love this episode!!! ...maybe because of the fact that Klingons were put here in a lighter tone with comedy. The fact alone that the episode is presented through the eyes of one of my favourites - Quark - makes it worth watching!
As some others here I'm a big fan of the chemistry between Grilka & Quark... I mean come on guys... a Ferengi & a Klingon being a couple... just hilarious!
