The Magnificent Ferengi


Episode Info

As suggested by its title, this Deep Space Nine episode invokes memories of the Akira Kurosawa classic The Seven Samurai (or at least its American remake, The Magnificent Seven). The plot is set in motion when Quark's mother Ishka (Cecily Adams) is captured by the Dominion. Organizing a motley band of Ferengi warriors, Quark sets out to rescue his mom, fully intending to honor his species' traditions by bargaining rather than battling his way into the enemy camp. Iggy Pop guest stars as Ishka's Vortan captor Yelgrun. First telecast on January 1, 1998, "The Magnificent Ferengi" was written by Ira Steven Behr.
