Re: Throwing the Ferengi out with the bath water?

I don't think they 'gave up' on them, so much as they were one of Gene Roddenberry's pet projects, and as we all know he took a back seat after season two and Berman and Piller didn't think much of them as potential foes. As others have said, both "The Battle" and "Peak Performance" do a reasonable job of portraying the Ferengi as threatening.

Certainly by "Rascals", the very idea of Ferengi as being a dangerous invading force was considered to be ridiculous.
