Scene 4: Sorek, Brack and Evens
Sorek, Brack and Evens
Ferengi did not wear uniforms. Damons (shipmasters) displayed their wealth by wearing extravagant clothing with garishly complex patterns. The more glittering and obnoxious the pattern, the wealthier its inhabitant. Ferengi were clothes-horses.
But the ferengi waiting for Captain Elizabeth Shelby in the mission briefing room were dressed quite oddly for ferengi. Shelby paused a moment to study them. She had never seen a ferengi adolescent before. The young man was dressed in what appeared at first to be a simple, black suit, as was the adult standing next to him. There was a pattern to this fabric - an enormously complex and extremely subtle pattern. Shelby turned her attention to the other even more strangely dressed ferengi before that pattern could hypnotize her.
The third ferengi was elderly, unusually large, and dressed in a dark, pinstriped, three-piece suit from Earth's 20th Century - complete with a necktie. He was leaning on a black cane with a gold knob at the top and shod at the bottom with a silver foot - a life-size replica of a ferengi's bare foot.
After affording herself a moment to take in this oddly serious looking delegation, Shelby introduced herself. "I am Captain Elizabeth Shelby. This is my first officer, Commander Jingfei Irons."
"Damon Trock of the F.M.S. Usotro," responded the oddly dignified ferengi in black. He gestured briefly to the adolescent standing next to him. "My son, Brock. Brock is here to observe, so I prefer that you not speak to him. That would require him to think, which would interfere with his observation. There will be time for him to think when he returns to my ship." The ferengi shipmaster gestured to the table. "Shall we begin?"
"And your other companion?" Shelby asked, gesturing toward the large, elderly frengi wearing antique terrestrial business attire.
Her first officer responded. "You would be Brack, of Sorek, Brack and Evens." Cmdr. Irons turned to look at her captain. "The law firm."
Shelby turned with some surprise toward her first officer, then back to look at the most famous ferengi on Earth. "Mr. Brack? What brings you all the way here from New York City?"
The elderly ferengi had a huge, booming voice that managed to convey a sneer as he spoke. "I am representing my client," He sat and placed his cane on the conference table - the silver representation of an unshod ferengi's foot aimed toward the captain. "What else would I be doing out here in the middle of nowhere?"
Damon Trock appeared in Star Trek Hunter, Episode 16: Slavers (as did his ship, the F.M.S. Usotro)
Brack was mentioned several times in the Star Trek Hunter Series. He was Captain Dolphin's lawyer in Episode 25: I Dream of Shiva
