Would someone mind explaining where the stardate listed for this episode comes from? Preferably with an episode timestamp? I just scanned through the episode and saw no instances of a log being stated that might have a stardate accompanying it. Nor does a stardate even appear in any cut scenes in the script that might have given someone the false impression that one was intended to be in the episode. --Alan del Beccio 22:50, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Did this question ever get sorted out? Looks like Kennelly added it. SwishyGarak 04:51, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Misspelling of original broadcast title??? Edit

Believe it or not, I still have my original broadcast copy on VHS, which I know for an absolute fact I would have taped during the original week it aired. I just checked it and the title was spelled correctly. Now I know the "Week Of" dates always fell on a Monday and represented the earliest date that a local station was allowed to air it. My local station I believe aired them on the Saturday of that week. So then is it possible that if it is in fact true that the title was initially misspelled, that they corrected the error by mid- or late-week rather than simply before the rerun as suggested on this page? I suppose, ideally it would be great if someone could ul a screen-cap of the misspelling if anyone has it. --Ds093 01:06, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

First on-screen Ferengi female? Edit

If I'm not totally mistaken I think this episode also marks the first appearance of a female Ferengi on screen, doesn't it? This, so I think, might also be worth mentioning, though I'd need some confirmation of that, please...

You're right, and this would be a good addition to the article. As far as I'm aware, the only Ferengi women we see are Pel and Ishka. – Cleanse 05:16, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
I was trying to think of that earlier and yes, Pel & Ishka are the only Ferengi females that I'm aware of as well. – Morder 07:21, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for acknowledging it. I added the information to the article. Vren Lyet 16:25, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Nitpicks Edit

Production Error. — Morder 08:47, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

  • During the scene where Quark and Pel inform the Nagus that they did not get the contract, red Gaffer tape can be seen on the floor under the table.
Also removed as a nitpick per MA:NIT. 31dot 08:16, April 22, 2012 (UTC)
