Stardate not given: Grand Nagus Zek arrives on the station a changed man. He’s written a book of completely new Rules of Acquisition and intends to reform the entire Ferengi way of life. Quark refuses to accept the sweeping change proposed by the Nagus, discovering that the pinnacle of Ferengi avarice acquired a missing Orb from the wormhole and then visited the wormhole itself, making contact with the aliens there who were reviled by Zek’s greed and reverted him into an earlier, kinder and gentler stage of Ferengi development. Quark wants the Nagus to be returned to his old, greedy, disgusting mannerisms right away!
