15 Days of DS9 // Day 3: Favourite Minor Character
Nog: I want to join Starfleet. I want it more than anything I’ve ever wanted in my life!
Commander Sisko: You’re a Ferengi. Why would you want to be in Starfleet? Where’s the profit in it?
Nog: I don’t care about profit!
Commander Sisko: Then what *do* you care about? Come on, Nog, tell me! Why’s it so damned important that you get into Starfleet? Why’re you doing this?
Nog: Because I don’t want to end up like my father!
Commander Sisko: Your… father?
Nog: That’s right, my father. He’s been chasing profit his whole life, and what has it gotten him? Nothing! And you know why? Because he doesn’t have the lobes… And neither do I.
Nog: My father is a mechanical genius. He could’ve been chief engineer of a starship if he’d had the opportunity. But he went into business, like a good Ferengi. The only thing is, he’s not a good Ferengi - not when it comes to acquiring profit. So now, all he has to live for, is the slim chance that someday, somehow, he might be able to take over my uncle’s bar. Well, I’m not going to make the same mistake. I want to do something with my life, something worthwhile.
