Storyline

The Head gives Quark a mission to spend an extended romantic interlude with a princess. Elated about his orders, Quark is later told by Palindrome that this is a secret mission to an unknown location. Quark and his crew set out from Perma One on the secret mission and along the trip they pick up a space baggie that they find in their way. But the bag they pickup gets jammed in the spacecraft's pickup door so Quark goes to fix the problem. When he is finished with the fix, Quark appears visibly older. This leads Ficus to conclude that Quark is aging at a rate of 2 years per hour due to a virus he encountered from the space baggie. Even though the crew attempts to cure Quark, all of their attempts fail. Quark is given final orders by Palindrome that he must complete an interlude with the beautiful and voluptuous Princess Carna in order to maintain a treaty with the dreaded Gorgons. Quark doubts that he can complete the mission, given his advancing age and senility, but he gives it a try... Written by H Pylypiw

Quotes

Adam Quark: How could this happen? What's my condition, Ficus? I've got to know!
Ficus: Sir, it would appear you are upset.
Adam Quark: That I know! I want to know why I came out of that hatch ten years older than when I went down.
Ficus: One explanation might be you were down there ten years.
Adam Quark: Ficus, I was down there five hours.
Ficus: That would rule out that theory.
