Cos wins on his gambling device

Quark se siente amenazado cuando un artista de la estafa abre un bar competidor en la Promenade

Sumario:Editar sección

Martus Mazur is a con artist arrested by Odo while he was attempting to con a woman out of her lifelong dream of investing in asteroid mining. He was charged by an elderly Pythron couple for an unrelated incident. While in holding Martus came into possesion of an alien gambling device which seemed to give him uncanny luck -- the first example being the elderly Pythron couple dropping their charges.

Martus was then released and after attempting to sell Quark the gambling device, decided to instead open a competing bar called Club Martus, which included large scale replicas of the alien gambling device.

Meanwhile, Quark had lost all his customers to Club Martus and desperately sought a way to revive his business. He learned of recent racquetball matches between Bashir and O'Brien, which O'Brien had been losing miserably, much to his annoyance. Quark decided to use this as a new business scheme to attract customers, and under the guise of faked emergency calls brought O'Brien and Bashir to his bar to force them into a tournament which Quark's customers would place bets on.

Many of the crew began reporting an abnormal amount of unusual coincidences and minor accidents, and Jadzia found that the laws of probability were seriously being altered when she discovered neutrinos were not spinning as they should.

During the match between O'Brien and Bashir, O'Brien observed he was playing far better than he had ever played in his life, while Bashir was doing terribly. Through simple trials of throwing the ball against the wall they found that it infallibly bounced its way straight into O'Brien's hand, which Jadzia described as "not impossible, simply improbable."

By searching for neutrinos that were spinning in one direction in high concentration, Jadzia and Sisko discovered the Club Martus replicas of the alien gambling device were actually altering the laws of probability and destroyed them.

Curiosidades:Editar sección

  • La primera intención de los escritores del episodio era que el personaje de Martus Mazur fuera hijo de Guinan; Ella misma iba a aparecer en el capítulo pero Whoopi Goldberg no estaba disponible para la filmación. Todas las referencias a ella fueron removidas y sólo quedó la raza El-Aurian como característica.
  • Los creadores de la serie quisieron en un momento dejar el personaje como recurrente, pero desistieron al quedar poco satisfechos con el resultado final del episodio.
  • Las zapatillas que calza Julian Bashir en el partido de Racquetball son en realidad de Marca Nike Air pintadas de plateado.
