During the 2360s and 2370s, Quark hired a variety of dabo girls to waitress and operate the dabo wheel at his bar on Deep Space 9. One of their main function was to distract male gamblers and keep them from constantly winning.
Quark often included "fringe benefits" in his dabo girls' contracts (page 21, subsection 12, paragraph D), up to and beyond oo-mox. However, Commander Benjamin Sisko assured him in 2369, after Starfleet took command of the station, that those provisions were not legally enforcible. (DS9: "Captive Pursuit", et al)
- In the non-canon DS9 relaunch novels, Quark hires a Dabo boy at the suggestion of Treir, an Orion dabo girl.
