DS9 is my all time favorite TV show, and I can answer questions on virtually any aspect of it, from on-screen information to behind-the-scenes material. If you go to www.memoryalpha.com, and go into any DS9 episode, look at the 'Background Information' section. Chances are I wrote most of what's there, especially on episodes from season 3 onwards.
I watched DS9 when it first aired. I've got all the episodes on DVD and have watched them all three times. I've watched all the special features on every DVD.

You know, that's a really good question. You're right, Starfleet don't pay their people, so the Starfleet personel wouldn't be able to pay Quark. The question isn't addressed on the show itself, and
