Publisher's Summary

For once, business is going well for Quark, not that anyone on Deep Space Nine truly appreciates his genius for finding profit in the most unlikely circumstances. Quark is even looking forward to making the deal of lifetime, when he suddenly finds himself stuck right in the middle of a major dispute between Bajor and the Ferengi Alliance. It seems that the Grand Nagus is refusing to sell one of the lost Orbs of the Prophets to the Bajoran government, which has responded by banning all Ferengi activity in Bajoran space. With diplomatic relations between the two cultures rapidly breaking down, Quark loses first his bar, then his freedom. But even penniless, he still has his cunning and his lobes, and those alone may be all he needs to come out on top - and prevent an interstellar war!

    "Good Trek story!"

    I was pleasantly surprised by Armin Shimerman's reading. He gets the verbal tics of his former fellow actors with incredible accuracy. In response to the other review, I listened to the recording again, and Armin did sound more like Quark in his contemplative moods on the show. Maybe the fake teeth and prosthetics exaggerated it on TV.

    The story is well-written, exploring the characters' hidden aspects, as the best DS9 episodes did, with the background of political intrigue and of course, the inherent silliness of the Ferengi's hyper-capitalism. The different words for rain bit is stolen directly from Douglas Adams ("So Long and Thanks for All the Fish"), but other than that, no complaints.

    The last tape of the original was running too slow when the Audible recording was made, so the narration in the last hour sounds like it's in slo-mo and lugubrious. Note to the uninitiated: this recording has all the cheesy synth music and sound effects that Simon & Schuster bizarrely keeps using in Trek books-on-tape (I understand the impulse back when the format was new, but it's since matured and doesn't need to have all the bells and whistles to keep the listener's attention).

    "Good Story but bad performance"

    I would have thought since they got Armin Shimmerman to play Quark that he would actually apply the voice of Quark. He doesn't sound like Quark at all in this audiobook. He does a better job immitating Rom then the character he played on Deep Space Nine for seven years. I don't understand that at all. The story overall was good, but I wanted a real Quark feel to it, and I didn't get that.
