Originally, the Ferengi were conceived as a new major enemy for the Federation. DS9 develops the Ferengi into so much more.
The episode is part courtroom drama, part Appalachian murder ballad, and all in all a fairly enjoyable episode.
It becomes one of DS9’s strengths as a show that the writers take this joke of an enemy species and convert the Ferengi into an interesting people with history and culture of their own.
When ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ was on TV, almost the only Emmys that ever went their way, despite the good acting and writing, were for makeup.

The outcome reflects some of the better segments of Roddenberry’s utopian vision: education and the rule of law.
