Re: When did the Ferengi go from "serious" villains to just comic reli
I was always disappointed that they decided to use the Ferengi for comic relief. I loved their bad ass ships that we saw in early TNG, but they seemed to disappear. Shimmerman gave depth to his character, but the "race", as a whole, was badly handled.
