Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 03 E 16 Prophet Motive
Grand Nagus Zek unexpectedly arrives on the station. When he reveals the revisions he plans to make to the Rules of Acquisition, Quark fears he may have gone insane and resolves to find out what's going on.


  • Breather Episode: After the back to back to back seriousness of Life Support, Heart Of Stone and Destiny, this episode is a comical romp focused on Quark.
  • I Know A Guy: Or as Odo puts it...
    Odo: I have a friend at Starfleet Intelligence. And she has a friend who has a cousin who's married to the assistant of one of the members of the Federation Medical Council.
  • Out-of-Character Alert: After trying to learn the future from The Prophets, they return Zek as an overly generous rube.
  • Suddenly Voiced: The first (And only) time we hear Maihar'du speak, even though he's a projection of the Prophets.
