RBDS9 070 – Family Business (S3E23)
Rebinging Star Trek DS9: Family Business
Hello Star Trek fans! Welcome to Season 3 Episode 23 of Deep Space Nine: Family Business. We were not super thrilled with this ridiculous episode – maybe it was too much a product of its time or maybe it wasn’t even good enough for its time! Whatever the reason, this one isn’t a good look for Trek. There’s a lot of nonsense in this episode reminding us about the Ferengi laws against women making a profit, leaving their homes and even wearing clothes. It’s a little hard to swallow. It’s a lot hard to tolerate. You’ve probably noticed, our podcast is very short as there was only so much time we were willing to devote to this topic.
In this episode, Quark learns that his mother is up to “no good” back on Ferenginar. She’s been wearing clothes and making money. So Rom and Quark turn up to convince her to confess and give back everything she’s earned. This episode is ridiculous. I have no further comment.

I truly appreciate your podcast on this episode. I couldn’t watch it and gave up part way through my own rewatch. I waited to tune into your reactions to this show. I wanted to say thank you for wrapping this bad episode up and putting it away in a box.
Thanks Liz! Might as well just move on from this – it’s old and done, but doesn’t get a free pass for being insulting and horrible.
