DaiMon was a quasi-military rank title in the Ferengi Alliance. A DaiMon was roughly equivalent in rank to a Starfleet captain.

History and specifics[]

The DaiMon title was usually purchased, and a DaiMon would either be commanding a Ferengi starship or would be assigned to an equivalent political or military posting.

The Ferengi Alliance empowered DaiMons to enter into trade agreements on behalf of the Alliance. They also had the authority to speak for the Alliance itself, even for high officials. (TNG episodes: "The Last Outpost", "The Battle")

DaiMons were required to give sizable percentages of their claims to the Grand Nagus and the GuiMon in Chief. Occasionally a DaiMon could use a large discovery as leverage to demand a higher percentage. (TNG - The Lost Era novel: The Buried Age)

Lwaxana Troi, in a habit of mispronouncing things, referred to DaiMon Tog as "Demon Tog". (TNG episode: "Ménage à Troi")
