Background information Edit
Solok was played by actor Lou Wagner.
It was originally intended that the Ferengi who helped the team would be Quark (using his experience with the Cardassians during his time on Terok Nor), in a crossover with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. However, this was changed when it was learned that Deep Space Nine would not air until several weeks after this episode.
Solok wore no rank insignia on his collar, but was addressed as "DaiMon".
In the script, he was described as "very disreputable looking -- even for a Ferengi. His clothes are rumpled and dirty... not a very successful Daimon in terms of money." Additionally, according to the pronunciation guide, his name was pronounced as "soh-LOK".
