Subject: Grand Nagus Zek
Status: Deep Space Nine Visitor
Occupation: Ferengi Grand Master of Commerce
Visitor Profile: As Ferengi Grand Nagus, Zek has enormous power over Ferengi business. He is able to control commercial opportunities and allocate trade territories. This is considered to be the highest position a Ferengi is able to hold in his community because business and commerce are at the heart of Ferengi life. The Ferengi, as a whole, are known to be the shrewdest dealers in Federation space. Indeed, they are notorious for their questionable “business” practices.
In 2369, a trade conference was held aboard Deep Space Nine. It was here that Zek named Quark, a resident Ferengi businessman on the space station, as his successor to the position of Grand Nagus. This appointment and the subsequent staged death of Zek was all part of a plan to test Zek’s son, Krax. In Ferengi tradition, when a Grand Nagus passes on, the body is preserved in a vacuum process. Then parts of the body are sold at a very high price. Those possessing a part of a deceased Grand Nagus are considered extremely prestigious in the Ferengi community.
Station Note: At times, raw greed dominates the reasoning of the Ferengi. And although the Ferengi do not run the most ethical business operations, their sole intention is not to bring harm to people they deal with.
