The "Haggle for <Gamma Quadrant Commodities>" series of assignments is the major source of Gamma Quadrant items, including Tulaberries, Jevonite, Unrefined Ketracel, Ferasan Nepeta Leaves, Bateret Incense and Shapeshifting Lockets. The various "flavors" of this assignment will appear randomly as you travel through the areas of the map most associated with Deep Space Nine. Though not, in themselves, particularly commendation point-valuable assignments, the resulting items are necessary to continue in many other assignments and assignment chains. Thus, it is important to continuously seek out these missions in order to make forward progress elsewhere.
Note that these assignments are usually quite sector specific. It is not unusual, for instance, to find "Haggle for Ferasan Nepeta Leaves" available in the Zeta Andromedae Sector Block (no longer exists), but "Haggle for Jevonite" in the neighboring Zenas Expanse, at the same time (or, if you prefer, during the same Sector Update). Thus, a wise strategy is likely to make a complete circuit of all the sectors on the "left of the galaxy map" in order to simultaneously run a few "Haggle" missions.
No matter what is the outcome of the mission, you will receive some amount of the item. Depending on your need for the item, it can make strategic sense to attempt the assignment even with poor quality or ill-suited duty officers. Some players will doubtless argue that it makes sense to run this assignment every time you see it, regardless of whether your "best" officers are available.
Summary[edit | edit source]
A Ferengi trader claims to have a rare supply of <commodity> available for just the right price.
Variations[edit | edit source]
There exists a variation for each of the six gamma quadrant commodities:
- [Bateret Incense]
- [Ferasan Nepeta Leaves]
- [Shapeshifting Lockets]
- [Unrefined Ketracel]
Outcome[edit | edit source]
(Ambushed!): The entire exchange was a trap! Ambushed and set upon, all of your energy credits were lost! (Doff is sent to the sickbay and no profit.)
(Unprofitable): The haggling went extremely poorly, and the exchange your representative agreed upon was indeed a bargain - for those you were trading with. (3 units of the commodity, no other reward.)
(Profitable): Trade negotiations proved moderately profitable, and your representative was able to arrange an adequate exchange. (5 units of the commodity plus normal Success rewards)
(Extremely profitable): The haggling proved extremely profitable, and your representative was able to engineer a superior bargain. (10 units of the commodity plus Critical Success rewards)
