Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The House of Quark

An incredibly slow night at Quarks leaves a drunken Klingon as their only patron. The Klingon asks for a line of credit, which Quark at first refuses, but changes his mind once the Klingon becomes agitated. However, before Quark can say anymore, the Klingon attacks him with a knife. In the ensuing scuffle, the Klingon pierces his own heart with the blade. In the aftermath, business begins to boom at Quark's as rumors spread, from Quark's own tall tale, that he defended himself valiantly against the Klingon warrior. Meanwhile, with the threat of the Dominion ever present, most of Keiko's students have relocated to Bajor so Keiko shut down the school.

Episode Notes
The working title of this episode was "Fight to the Death".

This episode marks the first appearance of Chancellor Gowron (Robert O'Reilly) on the series. It is notable as being his only appearance in either this series or Star Trek: The Next Generation without Michael Dorn.

Quark quotes Rom his own Ferengi Rule of Acquisition (#286, which doesn't exist since there are only 285 rules): When Morn leaves, it's all over.

Episode Quotes
Quark: (enters the Great Hall) I am Quark, son of Keldar, and I have come to answer the challenge of D'Ghor, son of...whatever.
