Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: If Wishes Were Horses

Stardate 46853.2: An unusual energy reading leads to the Deep Space Nine crew voicing concerns about energy emissions from ships using the area.

Log Entries:
* Station Log, Stardate 46853.2 - We have launched a probe to study the subspace anomaly. Meanwhile, more than half the people aboard DS9 have reported manifestations of their imagined thoughts.
* Station Log, Supplemental - The subspace anomaly continues to expand. As of yet, we've been unable to find a way to contain it. As a precaution, we have diverted all incoming ships away from the station.

Episode Quotes
Odo: Ladies and gentleman, may I have your attention, please?
(bangs synthale cup on table)
Ladies and gentleman,
(Looks at Morn as the humanoid passes by)
and all adrongynous creatures, your attention, please. As you may have noticed, we're experiencing some difficulties. I'm going to have to ask you all to please...refrain from using your imaginations.
(crowd laughs)
Quark: (with two women on his arm) Just because you don't have an imagination, don't ruin it for the rest of us. Let me guess. Another clever Federation experiment has gone awry and you've turned the whole station into one vast holosuite.
Odo: The phenomenon is being investigated as we speak.
Quark: Uh huh. Well, uh, tell them to take their time. I haven't had a chance to show the ladies my collection of Tataran landscapes yet.
Odo: I'm surprised by your attitude, Quark.
Quark: (one of the women fondles Quark's lobes) Ah, yes. Well you simply don't have the same appreciation for...art as I do.
(Odo looks at all the people winning money at roulette)
Odo: I'm surprised because every one of your customers is winning.
Quark: (distracted by women) What?
Odo: They're taking you to the poorhouse.
Quark: (becomes incredibly concerned) No. No, that's not possible. Let me through. (pushes through the crowd, talking to them) Lose. Lose.
