    Im right now watching an episode where Jake and Nog are hanging around Quark’s bar. The allow children to hang out at a bar?

    Nog had a job there. He sometimes worked for Quark. As a good Ferengi he exploits Family members. And Jake....? Ben Sisko wasn't fond of their friendship at the beginning. It changed when Nog went to Starfleet and showed more responsibility.
    For business reasons Ferengi don't seem to pay attention to strict Youth Protection Acts. They are customers after all. As long as there are no threats of penalty charges in the event of an infringement.

    So long as they are kept from certain activities (drinking alcohol, gambling, or using some holosuite programs) what's the harm?

    Quark's would be better called a pub, a place to eat, drink, talk, and be entertained, not necessarily a place to get drunk.

    AS far as bars/pubs/saloons/drinking holes/etc. go, Quark's is pretty innocuous. And I'm pretty sure Quark isn't going to risk pissing off the station commander by getting his son drunk.

    Maybe Bajor has no drinking age. But Quark is smart enough not to get Starfleet kids drunk.

    Also Starfleet kids have no money.

    It's even more like the Ferengi don't have such restrictions, parting drunk fools from their money is even easier than sober ones.

    Yeah, but Quark's bar would fall under Bajoran law.

    Maybe, but maybe not. Sisko told Quark that if he runs honest games he'll have no trouble. I bet a bar with gambling would not be free to operate on Bajor.

    More importantly: Quark's falls under Odo Law.

    Would they? Maybe before the Occupation. If there were gambling establishments that stayed alive by bribing Cardies would shutting them down be a priority if they shifted those bribes to Bajorans or even better, attracted tourist cash?

    Sort of a tangent, this, but why not have the subject title "Jake and Nog Walk into a Bar"?

    Works even better as:

    "Jake, Nog, and Dax Walk into a Bar"?

    :lol:

    And my favorite bar joke involves the proton, electron, and neutron that walk in and the neutron is happy because the bartender says there's no charge... :rofl:

    :devil:
