Domjot table

A dom-jot table on Starbase Earhart

Dom-jot was a game played with a ball and cue on a table with an irregular geometric coordination, similar to Terran billiards with certain elements of pinball. Rolling the terik into straight nines was considered an extremely skilled move in dom-jot.

Cortan Zweller was fond of dom-jot, as were Jake Sisko, Nog, and Leeta. (TNG: "Tapestry"; DS9: "The Abandoned", "Doctor Bashir, I Presume")

Jean-Luc Picard was stabbed through the heart by a Nausicaan during a quarrel over a game of dom-jot in 2327. This incident led to Picard undergoing emergency surgery to receive an artificial heart. (TNG: "Tapestry")

In 2371, Benjamin Sisko learned from Jake's then-girlfriend, Mardah, that Jake was quite a dom-jot hustler. Later that year, Jake cancelled plans to play dom-jot with Nog, in favor of a date with Leanne at Deep Space 9's Klingon restaurant. (DS9: "The Abandoned", "Life Support")

In 2372, shortly before Nog departed for Starfleet Academy, Jake mused that they seemed to have spent most of the previous three years doing nothing, aside from playing dom-jot and watching Bajoran transports dock. (DS9: "Little Green Men")

During Nog's time at the Academy, Jake told the Ferengi's uncle Quark that he was proud of what his nephew was doing, to which Quark replied, "Remember that the next time you try to play dom-jot by yourself." (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")

Dom-jot was also available in a computerized form. Jake played such a version of the game on a PADD in 2373. (DS9: "The Ascent")

In an alternate timeline, Jake spent much time playing dom-jot after his father died. (DS9: "The Visitor")

Dom jot balls - It's a Wrap

Several multi-colored dom-jot balls were later sold off for $565.55

The dom-jot table seen in "Tapestry" was designed by Production Illustrator Rick Sternbach who noted the playing surface as being made out of felt with rubber bumper strips around the outside of the table, which itself was held up by three "V"-shaped legs. (Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Continuing Mission, p.178)

The script for "The Maquis, Part II" includes a conversation between Jadzia Dax and Kira Nerys, in which Dax recalls that Curzon Dax once persuaded Benjamin Sisko and Calvin Hudson to play a game of dom-jot against two Zakdorn on Pelios Station. The Zakdorn won each game played over seven hours and Curzon revealed he had bet on their victory. This conversation was ultimate cut from the finished episode. [1]

Several dom-jot balls, described as "acrylic spheres about the size of a billiards ball, in quasi-transparent colors with a diameter of approximately two inches", were later sold off in the It's A Wrap! sale and auction for $565.55. [2]

ApocryphaEdit

In the Pocket DS9 novel Avatar, Book 1, dom-jot is one of several games available to play at Quark's on Deep Space 9, in 2376.

Legends of the Ferengi also reveals that Nog ran a dom-jot gambling ring during his time at Starfleet Academy.
