Re: Best movie to watch?
That scene would have been so wrong.
The whole point was that the Ba'ku wanted to live alone and undisturbed. The Federation was intruding on their lives in order to make a profit. Having Quark show up at the very end as a joke would have meant that nothing changed and that the Ba'ku were doomed sooner or later anyways.
I suspect this was the reason the for scene's exclusion.
