    Of course we'd already had empath-con-men, back in The Price, with Devinoni Ral. And at least he was meant to be a foil to Troi and Riker's empathy. By juxtaposing him with Quark we don't really get that kind of thematic. There were better choices of DS9 regulars to contrast El-Aurians with that would allow them to delve proper into the spacetime witchcraft thematics of Guinan's species … and there were better ways to give Quark a con-man foil, too.
