I've never liked the Ferengi.

 

But it was nice to know how their system works with the Nagus and stuff

An average ep. Mainly a way to introduce Grand Nagus Zek. :) I like the Ferengi and it is good that the Ferengi eps got better after this one.

I loved all of the Ferengi episodes.

 

I did when we learned more about them in DS9, I didnt like how they were portrayed in early TNG episodes, DS9 saved the Ferengi IMO

Definitely, I should clarify. I loved all DS9 Ferengi episodes. There were a couple in TNG that I liked but mostly just the DS9 ones.

Armin Shimerman has said that he regretted his initial performance in the first Ferengi episode on TNG. He said he was glad to be Quark because he could change the perception of the entire race.

The Ferengi's first appearance in "The Last Outpost" portrayed a very different kind of Ferengi than what we later get used to on DS9.

I really enjoyed this episode. Some trivia on the ep:

 

Memorable Quotes

"Tell me, is the Grand Nagus here on business or pleasure?"

"Is there a difference?"

"No, of course not."

- Quark and Rom

 

"Hold on... are you claiming Vulcans stole your homework?"

"Yes, sir."

"And why would they do that?"

"Because they have no ethics?"

- Nog telling O'Brien what happened to his essay on ethics

 

"My father requires rest!"

"Please feel free to use my own... brother's quarters for as long as you're with us."

- Krax and Quark

 

"Now go to your room! And no studying!"

- Rom to Nog, forbidding him to go to school

 

"You failed! Miserably!"

- Zek, speaking about his test of Krax's readiness to become Grand Nagus

 

"It's like talking to a Klingon!"

- Zek, frustrated with Krax

 

"So, you were going to toss me out an airlock."

"Forgive me, Brother."

"Forgive you? Why Brother, I didn't think you had the lobes!"

- Quark and Rom

 

Background Information: The working title of this episode was Friends & Foes

 

This episode features the first appearance of Wallace Shawn as Zek and Tiny Ron as Maihar'du.

 

Referenced Ferengi Rules of Acquisition:

1. Once you have their money, you never give it back.

6. Never let family stand in the way of opportunity.

 

The scene where Quark meets Nava is an homage to the opening scene of Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 movie The Godfather. Quark's Corvan gilvo, the way he scratches his ear, the blinds on the windows, even the dialog ("Yet now you call me Nagus") are all taken from that famous movie.

 

This episode is the first to mention the Fire Caves on Bajor (home of the Pah-wraiths), although Sisko calls them the "Fire Caverns".

 

The Ferengi face seen on the Grand Nagus' staff was originally sculpted to resemble Armin Shimerman's Quark.

 

Morn is seen laughing in this episode, he never opened his mouth again throughout the series.
