Literary Treks 121: Wall Street of the '80s

Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Ferenginar: Satisfaction is Not Guaranteed








The world of Ferenginar was first seen 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 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine 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.
