Mission Summary

The end of the Dominion War with the signing of the Treaty of Bajor has proven to be significantly beneficial to more than just those directly involved in the war: The United Federation or Planets, the Dominion, the Cardassian Union, the Klingon and Romulan empires. It has also had some influence on the Ferengi Alliance who always seem to financially benefit be here war or peace. However, the ability to freely pass from the Alpha quadrant to the Gamma quadrant in order to open trade relations across the Gamma quadrant has resulted in rather positive results for the Ferengi.

Though they are always looking for ways to exploit others, rarely does anyone let alone the Federation ever see the maliciousness of a Ferengi up to their lobes in profit via illegal activities and questionable morality. When reports of elevated piracy activity in a section of the Gamma quadrant raise a few eye brows, the recently refitted USS Katana is sent to investigate. At first nobody really knows who is to blame but Ferengi seem unlikely as planets are being raided, cargo ships being looted and corpses are being left behind.

The Katana's investigation of the sector appear to be fruitful when another report of a small planet is being raided, the Katana rush to catch the culprit in the act. However, when the crew of the USS Katana arrive at the scene of the crime, they are encountered by not one but starships from two different species working together; Ferengi and Nausicaan. The situation becomes tense when the Ferengi and Nausicaan starships open fire on the USS Katana, but the crew of the Katana are not about to allow the pillaging to continue.

It appears that the Ferengi have been exploiting the trade routes in the Gamma quadrant by allying themselves with Nausicaan raiders as a means to make profit by pillaging and looting from species native to the Gamma quadrant and selling the treasures to collectors and buyers in the Alpha quadrant. However, the crew of the USS Katana soon learn that it is more than precious artifacts, relics, and talismans that the Ferengi are stealing. They have actually been abducting 'lesser beings' from various Gamma quadrant planets to sell to collectors and slave owners in the Alpha quadrant.
