However while vying for control of the planet both Gree and Ferengi traded away attibutes of their species in an auction, the result of which left the once beautiful Ferengi race as they are today, and the Gree who although were the victors as the helpless worms that Ferengi snacked on. Leading to the 3rd Rule of Acquisition "Never spend more for an acquisition than you have to." (DS9 reference: Legends of the Ferengi)
