Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 04 E 25 Body Parts
After a misdiagnosis of a fatal disease, FCA Liquidator Brunt comes calling for Quark's still very alive body. Elsewhere, an accident on an away mission forces Bashir to transfer Keiko's unborn baby into Kira.


  • The Bad Guy Wins: Quark breaks his contract to save his skin, meaning Brunt gets to confiscate all of his possessions.
  • First Name Basis: Kira encourages this with Miles and Keiko, since she's having their baby.
  • Honorary Uncle: Well, Aunt. Aunt Nerys to be specific.
  • Sadistic Choice: Quark is boned from the start. Either he breaks his contract and lives, or dies so Brunt can claim the remains he paid for. He chooses life.
  • Skewed Priorities: When Bashir tells Quark that he's not going to die of Dorek's Syndrome, this dialogue ensues:
    Quark: Do you know what this means, Rom?
    Rom: It means you're gonna live!
    Quark: It means I get to sue Dr. Orpax for malpractice! And I'm gonna live.
