Re: Do you love or hate the Ferengi episodes, overall?
Quark is a great character, I totally agree. I think it's easy to forget how important he was as a supporting character in episodes such as "In the Pale Moonlight" or "The Siege of AR-558". He's very observant and offers a great 'outside' view of the Federation and Starfleet that we never really got in Star Trek outside of DS9 IMHO.
