Seasoning Season 8

Starting a thread to imagine Season 8 episode ideas. Add to it if you like.

I like the idea of another two-parter like TNG did with the Klingons, Romulans, Borg, and Cardassians. What about one with the Ferengi that vindicates them as villains? Something showing their threat to the universe, not as Klingon or Romulan-like imperial conquerors, but as conquerors using economics and culture. Something seedy maybe that would fit better on Farscape or Star Wars? Or something very lofty showing how easily some cultures would more likely be keen on Ferengi economics than Federation. Look how difficult it is for us to accept the Federation moneyless economy - maybe if we given overtures by the Federation or the Ferengi Alliance we'd find ourselves indentured servants of the Alliance. Maybe the Ferengi could never have been as sexy villains as the Romulans or Cardassians, but they could have been more widespread, insidious, and loathsome.

No Daimon Bok. Yes more Ferengi ship designs.
