Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Profit and Lace” (part 2 of 6)

The episode begins in Quark’s Bar. The owner of the bar, a Ferengi who coincidentally is named Quark, exclaims, “I am truly impressed!” What’s got Quark so impressed? If you said “the script”, I am hereby revoking your Homo Sapiens Membership Card.

No, what’s turned Quark’s head is a “glowing employee performance report” for one of the Dabo girls in his bar, a brunette named Aluura (with “Dabo” being a roulette-like form of gambling, not to be confused with the Bond Girl in The Living Daylights or Kevin Arnold‘s sister.)

“I’m telling you, what DS9 really needs is a garage door opener!”

Aluura (played by the gorgeous Symba Smith) has these rhinestone thingies embedded in her face all around her eyes. So, either she’s some alterna-raver chick, or there was an accident several years ago with a briefcase full of diamonds and some C4, and Aluura doesn’t know any good doctors.

During his praise of Aluura, Quark mentions the full name of his establishment, which for the first time in the series we learn is “Quark’s Bar, Grill, Gaming House and Holosuite Arcade”. So stop complaining; this episode is brimming with useful information!
