The Nagus

Star Trek: Deep Space NineStardate not given: Quark receives a surprise – and something of a dubious honor – when Grand Nagus Zek, a Ferengi business mogul, arrives at DS9. After some customary patronizing at Quark’s, Zek insists on holding a conference of Ferengi profiteers there, while Quark fears that Zek plans on buying out his bar on the station. To everyone’s surprise, especially Quark’s, Zek announces his retirement and declares that Quark will succeed him to the coveted position of Grand Nagus. Many of the visiting Ferengi are jealous, as would be expected of them. But Quark discovers – after a close call – that someone among the Ferengi is jealous enough to try gaining the position of Nagus by killing him.
