I think this episode is alright, though only when compared to other Ferengi episodes. It doesn't have Ishka for a start!
At least it tried to look at female Ferengi in a serious way.
Way back when I saw the series for the first time, I honestly couldn't remember that the Dominion had been brought up before The Jem'Hadar. I was only just getting into the series really, so didn't really remember what came before. I was far more impressed during my first rewatch of the show how far ahead they were namedropping though.
Having said that though, this episode and Sanctuary, the other episode where they were referenced, were both very average. It's funny that the references were in these episodes, before we get blown away by The Jem'Hadar.
But I'm way
ahead of myself.
