3 Tribbles! I know, I know this is not a fan favorite for having the Ferengi appear so early, but I think it works here. The crew never finds out who they are, and it was just a fun episode. Reminding me of DS9 episodes that were Ferengi heavy.
Clint Howard, Ethan Phillips, and Jeffery Combs guest star as Ferengi.
The Rules of Acquisition have grown by the time of TNG and DS9! Good trick of the Ferengi on how they gassed the Enterprise. Great scene of them dealing with Porthos! I like Trip biting the Ferengi on the ear, and later getting a taste of the whip. Plus, I like it that all alien races love pecan pie!
T'Pol as always rules! Maybe this is where the Ferengi infatuation with Vulcan women comes from?

Yeah Ferengi make an appearance. One would think that the crew would have least learned more about the aliens that managed to pull that off. Seems odd that they didn't learn what race they were.
Where on the ship does Porthos go to the bathroom? Its a topic of hot discussion between my kids and I. Is he litter box trained, which offends my dog loving son. Does he have a special room to pee in, which doesn't make sense. Space being a premium on a ship. Can you even train a dog to pee in a certain spot?
