    Actually they seem to know alot about them.

    They know what their ships look like.

    They know their tech is roughly equivalent to the UFP.

    They've a pretty good idea what Ferengi society is like.

    Thanks for the info, but I was actually only trying (and obviously failing) to make fun of how in the pilot, they were supposed to be dangerous and mysterious, when in the end, they turned out to be neither. :)

    Yes, but "realistically" his databanks should be at least as good as Wikipedia.

    Well they pretty much blew it on every level: Make up, costume, body language. None of which said "Serious threat".

    I think it's a great shame that the Ferengi design got watered down. Some of the early proof concepts (pointed ears and more pronounced-looking fangs) do actually look pretty fearsome.
