Stardate: Unknown--Quark's cousin Gaila arrives at the station with a business proposition. He offers a piece of his weapon-selling business to Quark - which would pay off all of Quark's debts within a month.

But the best part is Quark will technically not be breaking the law as he will be in charge of "hospitality", showing customers a good time and allowing them to test harmless replicas of their offerings in his Holosuites. Soon, Quark is making more latinum than he ever imagined.
