Station log: Quark’s deal with a woman named Emi—who is giving Quark oo-mox while they finalize a deal for self-sealing stembolts—is interrupted by the arrival of Grand Nagus Zek and Maihar’du, who have decided to move into Quark’s quarters, which means that Quark has to live with Rom.
Bashir has been nominated for the Carrington Award, the most prestigious medical award in the Federation. Everyone is thrilled—except for Bashir, who isn’t making a big fuss about it, mainly because the Carrington is supposed to be a lifetime achievement award, and he thinks he’s too young. Dax is impressed with his maturity.
