I don't have Doors Into Chaos, so could someone add the reference to the Collapse from it? Its at the very start of the book. -- Tough Little Ship 14:39, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
- The reference is rather... slim... here it is. To set up, Zek is on Ferenginar with Rom:
- With a shake of his head, he turned his attention to the feeds from the remaining orbital satellites. Telemetry was coming in and he began to notice odd energy readings just a few tens of thousands of kilometers from Ferenginar. The readings were massive, emitting an energy signature he didn't recognize, but clearly a portal of some sort, large enough to allow Orion starships to traverse through it. This was disturbing, if the Orions found some way to alter the scale of trade. Should they manage to just show up and attack worlds or shipping lanes, no one would be safe.
- Again, he wondered why would they come to Ferenginar. Zek was no fool, and had made certain their wealth was spread out far and wide, controlled through some of the most sophisticated software imaginable. Rom saw no reason to change what worked.
- "Grand Nagus!" shrieked the voice once more.
- "They've established orbit and are engaging the aerial police. But we've detected transporter activity."
- This wasn't good. Orions would not beam down just to trade or make a deal. They came to steal and his people would not know what to do. This would be worse than the Great Monetary Collapse. "Where?"
- "Your home."
- Rom bit his lip in surprise and he yelped. His home! Not that he had a lot of gold-pressed latinum on hand, but he had mementos brought from both Deep Space 9 and the house where Ishka raised him and Quark.
- That's the only reference I could find in the book to the collapse. -- Sulfur 15:08, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
