Ferenginar: Satisfaction is Not Guaranteed.

The world of Ferenginar was first seen on Star Trek in the Deep Space Nine episode, Family Business and would only be seen one other time in the series yet the planet was home to some of the show’s most beloved characters so it was an obvious choice to visit again in the Worlds of DS9 books.

In this episode of Literary Treks Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther brave the weather on Ferenginar to talk about Satisfaction is Not Guaranteed. We discuss this being a “Ferengi Episode”, how it fits with the rest of the book series, an outsider’s look, rounding out Quark, cleaning up the Ferengi, ratings and our final thoughts.

In the news we take a look at the latest issue of Star Trek Ongoing, #49.
