Having trouble reaching anyone on Ferenginar, Rom goes to Quark and begs him to help find out what is going on. Trying to figure out what to do, a Ferengi ship appears with Grand Nagus Zek and Quark and Rom's mother on board. Landing, they tell the two brothers that Zek amended the Ferengi Bill of Opportunities to allow Ferengi women to wear clothes. The result of the amendment led to worldwide panic in the Ferengi stock market that overloaded all of the communications lines. As a result, Zek was deposed and Brunt is now the Grand Nagus. That is, unless Zek can retake his crown.
