A bitter, red-colored beverage poured into a shot glass said to be priceless among the Gamma Quadrant Wadis. After taking a taste after the Wadi Falow extolled its value, Quark didn't think much of its...
A beverage of questionable value. Trying to weasel out of being caught running a rigged dabo table during the Wadis' visit, Quark offered to throw in a case of this beverage for their return flight home. The...
A health food. Jadzia Dax has long sworn by the benefits of azna, dating back to at least when Curzon was the Dax host. Jadzia preferred azna prepared steamed, claiming it lenghthened a lifespan.
In biomedical applications, a radiated energy used to accelerate cellular growth -- especially useful to accelerate the growth of a cloned individual. This technique was employed by Dr. Julian Bashir on...
Standard medical analysis to test cellular components. On station Deep Space Nine, such an analysis was run by Dr. Bashir on a group of unknown cells found in Ibudan's quarters in an effort to help determine...
Nominally a perceptual dysfunction in which aural and visual stimuli, as well as other communication and comprehension function, are incorrectly processed by the brain. Typically aphasia is associated...

I'danian spice pudding
An extremely rich dessert, white with a creme on top, which many residents of Deep Space 9 have a weakness for. Disappointed with the varieties he found on Earth during the trip back to get the Defiant,...
A stew that Quark nominally served from his food replicator. A bad batch, ordered when DS9's malfunctioning replicators almost drove away business, so disgusted the Markalian customer Asoth that the alien...

Medical diagnostic scan employed to test the acuity of a patient's visual cortex. In 2369, on station Deep Space Nine, Chief Medical Officer Doctor Julian Bashir performed a neural imaging scan on Chief...
test sample 37-D (delta)
One of the many ineffective samples run while a fatigued Doctor Bashir races to find an antidote to the aphasia-like virus and analyzed just as he realizes he has the disease. The computer's summary of...
While listening to a complaint about Quark's lascivious behavior from a Dabo girl, Sisko is alerted that an alien vessel is coming through the wormhole. The vessel contains a reptilian being named Tosk,...
A dish native to the North African region of Earth. Couscous (pronounced "KUSS-kuss") is a crushed grain that is steamed and normally served with vegetables or meat. This item is on Quark's menu and Bashir...
DNA reference scan
Medical procedure to test and confirm the identity of an individual by matching DNA patterns with those on file. Kajada, a Kobliad security officer, requested Doctor Julian Bashir perform a DNA reference...
Otherwise undescribed disease which approximated death in a patient -- possibly a Bajoran if Doctor Bashir's off-station medical mission is short-ranged -- and even fooled a tricorder until Doctor Bashir...
Traveling in a runabout, Kira and Bashir pick up a distress signal from a disabled Kobliad ship. They beam over to discover an injured Kobliad woman named Ty Kajada, a security officer. Her passenger —...
A pale pink beverage (pronounced "LANG-gore") that is highly prized, at least for ceremony. When meeting the twin Miradorns, Quark broke out his special flask, which he gently cradled during an ensuing...
Candy concoction, a staple for humans with a sweet tooth and a former U.S. President. Out of bored mischief, Nog once tossed this 500-year-old Terran candy from his second-level Promenade perch on passersby...
With the Federation's help, the Bajoran government is about to perform a massive energy transfer by tapping the molten core of its fifth moon, Jeraddo. In preparation, Kira and Dax make an orbital inspection...
Some unspecified root, an inch thick and hard with a light-brown potato-like skin, is chopped into segments about nine-inches long, grown on Jeraddo and prepared by farmer Mullibok for his "last supper."
A Federation medical procedure commonly used to slow down a critically injured patient's biological functions, thereby allowing more time to diagnose and repair the problem. On stardate 46922 Dr. Julian...
Kira protests when Sisko allows a Valerian ship to dock at the station, because she believes that the Valerians are supplying weapons-grade dolamide to the Cardassians. However, before the Valerian ship...
ionic interference signal
Dr. Bashir used this signal, which was locked onto the resonance frequencies of the telepathic matrix which was afflicting the Deep Space Nine officers, to reverse the effect and expunge it.
A Kobheerian freighter transports a passenger onto the space station who has a medical condition known as Kalla-Nohra. Kira recalls that the only cases of this were the result of a mining accident at a...
A disease whose only known cases resulted from a mining accident at the Gallitepp forced labor camp for Bajorans, sometime prior to its liberation in 2358. Dr. Bashir did not hear of it until Marritza's...
A disease (pronounced "POT-rick") that Marritza, seeking to spark suspicion that he really is Gul Darhe'el, claims to be afflicted with rather than Kalla-Nohra syndrome, which he says is treated with the...
Ferengi beverage. Often served at Quark's, one version of the Black Hole is straight up. This drink is enjoyed by Boslic captain who unknowingly brought Li Nalas' earring to Bajor. Jadzia Dax also has...
Kira is intrigued when Quark presents her with an earring he claims was delivered from Cardassia IV. She immediately recognizes the earring as that of Li Nalas, who according to legend is the greatest...
Sweet treat, often made with chocolate, that has been popular on Earth for centuries. Still a treat among at least humans in the 24th century, an experimental one designed by Bashir during medical school...
combat rations, Starfleet
Packaged in small hand-held packets, the food unit contains a timed released formula of all the nutrients the body needs for three days. Befitting his meat-and-potatoes food tastes, O'Brien loved them.
french onion soup
Earth delicacy made from a sautéed root and meat broth. A favorite of Sisko's — which he wishes he had instead of O'Brien's combat rations during the guerilla holdout against Jaro's coup forces on DS9...
Bashir is surprised when his "friend" Garak, a Cardassian tailor, is attacked and bitten by a Cardassian boy who is visiting the station with his Bajoran father. The boy, Rugal, is an orphan abandoned...

A violent plasma storm leads to the evacuation of Deep Space Nine, leaving a skeleton crew behind to maintain the station. Odo is suspicious when he learns that Quark is hiding in an airlock, but can pin...
A leafy brown Klingon food (pronounced "glahdst"), served with or without sauce, available at the Klingon restaurant on DS9. Bashir ordered a double helping of Gladst, no sauce, for himself and Melora.
A common herb which grows in remote areas of Invernia II and has medicinal properties. It was unknown to the young Dr. Bashir and his father when they were trapped by an ionic storm on that planet and...
The crew welcomes Ensign Melora Pazlar, a cartographer on a mission to chart the Gamma Quadrant. Melora is an Elaysian, a species from a planet with very low gravity, and because of this, she must use...
Biochemical neuro-stimulants developed within the 2360s that Doctor Bashir hypothesizes and proves can put Nathaniel Teros' abandoned theory of Neuromuscular Adaptation to work -- and offer Elaysian Ensign...

Vak clover soup
Made from roasted and ground cacao seeds, this popular Earth confection has a rich and varied history. It was perhaps a commodity on DS9 during the Bajor Occupation; Quark offered some to Odo to make...
A beautiful Bajoran woman, Pallra, calls Quark to Bajor and persuades him to retrieve a strongbox her late husband kept hidden on Deep Space Nine. He agrees, unaware that a stranger named Trazko has observed...
flaked blood fleas
Gramilian sand peas
A largely unknown vegetable in 2369 that, when eaten as a snack, inhibits secretion of the salivary glands while drying out tongue tissues — in effect, causing a thirst in the consumer. Gramilian sand...
Rules of Acquisition
While engaging in a game of Tongo with Rom, Dax, and a young Ferengi waiter named Pel, Quark is hailed by his leader, Grand Nagus Zek, who has good news for him — Zek has chosen him to act as his chief...

A brewed beverage (pronounced "chur-ALL-tun"). Sisko once ordered this drink, with a double twist of lemon, for his first drink of the day the morning after stardate 47329.4. Usually Sisko began his day...
An ingredient used in the broth of a complex dish developed by Dr. Gideon Seyetik, which got rave reviews from DS9's senior crew in 2370. A tumbler and a half of Gremish is mixed with one liter of clear...
