Mission Text[]

Let me be honest with you, <rank>.

Having my brothers here at the station is putting a serious cramp in my business ventures. If they get into trouble, then I get tarred with the same brush. If I'm not careful, no one will trust me!

So maybe you could deal with my brother Markin's latest disaster.

Markin has a contact from the Orion Syndicate funneling stolen merchandise here. Could you talk to him and convince him, that selling components that fell off the back of a Yridian trading ship is a bad idea?

If you don't stop him, it will only be a matter of time until Commander Romaine finds out. And then we're all in trouble!


Investigate claims that Markin is selling stolen merchandise. You can find him in the Physical Sciences R&D area of Memory Alpha.


  • Talk to Markin
  • Inspect Markin's Shipment
  • Confront Markin

Option A[]

  • Report to Commander Romaine
  • Return to Zel at Memory Alpha

Option B[]

  • Dispose of Markin's Illegal Goods
  • Talk to Markin
  • Return to Zel at Memory Alpha


  • Unlike some other diplomatic missions, there is no action you can take to fail the mission.
  • Markins's reaction to you destroying the goods suggests that this option will not stop the Ferengi from smuggling in the future.
