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")

According to a cut line from DS9: "The Maquis, Part II", Curzon Dax once persuaded Benjamin Sisko and Calvin Hudson to play a game against two Zakdorn on Pelios Station. The Zakdorn won each game played over seven hours and Curzon revealed he had bet on their victory.

In 2371, Benjamin Sisko learned from Jake's then-girlfriend, Mardah, that Jake was quite a dom-jot hustler. (DS9: "The Abandoned")

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")

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")
