Women
Ambitions To bring the Ferengi into the Federation.

Personal History Nuxac was like most Ferengi, obsessed with profit and treating women as the second-class citizens they were until his father died. His father and his merchant group were among one of the ten wealthiest among all of his people, and the day afterwards, he received another shock.

His mother revealed to him that she, along with his aunt and older sister, had been the brains behind his family’s wealth. He refused to believe it until he was shown ironclad proof of their claims.

It was then he started thinking that if women could do the things he had been told they couldn’t, what else had he been wrong about?

Several years later he was in a bar owned by his family negotiating a deal with a potential client and negotiations were going quite badly when a fight broke out between a couple of Klingons. As he watched them fight, he noticed most of the clientele fled and what few who couldn’t found somewhere to hide.

Realizing the loss of potential profit due to the conflict, he stepped in and actually managed to talk them down. The client, impressed with his negotiating skills, agreed to the deal, and the clientele that fled soon returned.

While the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition said that both war and peace were good for business, he came to believe that peace was the better of the two. The way he saw it, in war only weapons merchants profited from the conflict, but in peace many more profited.

He then had another revelation. The Federation was always trying to bring peace and cooperation to the galaxy, and if peace was better for business, why not work with them?

His mother was quite open to the idea, though she was concerned the Federation might not welcome him, given previous bad experiences with his people. His sister stepped in and suggested to approach it like any other business deal; he was basically selling himself to Starfleet, so he had to show he was of value if they were going to accept him.

Guided by his sister’s insight, he approached a Starfleet officer named Remington Davenport who served in a starbase that was located within his family’s area of operations. Remington was initially reluctant to deal with him, but the information he provided was quite useful and so they entered into an agreement in which he would provide Remington with information in exchange to sponsor his entry into Starfleet. He kept this up for several years to ensure he got a glowing recommendation.
Service Record His first year at Starfleet Academy was the most difficult. While he had trained himself, the physical training was almost too much for him, but that was nothing compared to the social obstacles he had to overcome. Many of his classmates were unwilling to associate with him due to the numerous bad experiences the Federation previously had with this people.

One other cadet particularly had it out for him, a human female named Grace Johnson. Her father had been a Starfleet officer who had died during a Ferengi attack on his ship, and she was determined to get her revenge. It was only through his relating to her about his father’s death and a speech during his intergalactic politics class on the challenge faced by Captain Kirk during peace negotiations with the Klingons that her stance began to soften, and by the end of the school year they were friends.

The hardest part for him came at the end of his time at the Academy. His family could not come to see him, as his cover was that of a Ferengi rebel and any visit by them would have weakened his family considerably.

*****

His first assignment was at an outpost on the fringes of Federation space. Like any clever and strong-willed person, he saw that a challenge was in fact an opportunity for him to demonstrate his usefulness, so rather than going in as a Starfleet officer he instead arrived at the starbase in the guise of a typical Ferengi businessman and opened up a bar there.

He quickly began picking up useful intelligence which he began carefully reporting to his superiors all the while developing a reputation as a man who can get certain extralegal matters done discreetly. He also began releasing carefully doctored information that was designed to identify criminals and other unsavory elements, and with it he successfully uncovered a Romulan sleeper cell. Realizing his usefulness was at an end at that location, he was transferred to his next assignment.
