The Morn Page
This page is dedicated to one of the most heroic, glamorous characters in the Star Trek Universe:
The picture to the right shows Morn at this favourite place on Deep Space Nine: at Quark's. Usually it's more crowded than that, though.
Rumors about future Morn episodes:
What's known about Morn? (also check the Morn Database on the PsiPhi pages).
- Race: Lurian.
- Sex: Male (in fact, in If Wishes Were Horses it was mentioned that the Lurians are an
- Residence: Deep Space Nine.
- Actor: Mark Shepard.
- The Morn smiley: ;-P
- He's a barfly who doesn't have a job.
- He has never had any speaking lines in the Star Trek episodes so far
and he will never get any speaking lines

But he likes to talk alot (teaser in The Jem'Hadar).

Adult Nog: "But Morn is still there, running the bar!"
- He has 17 (yes, seventeen) siblings.
Bashir: "Seventeen...brothers and sisters?"
- He has more than one heart.
Quark: "Poor Morn. This is going to break his hearts."
Through the Looking Glass
- In Way of the Warrior: he is harrased by Klingons and is specified as an "Ionite Trader". So, either he is trading in Ionite (whatever that is), or he is from the `Ionite Nebula' (wherever that is; not mentioned in the ST locations FAQ) as the Bajoran Encyclopedia assumes.
- He's not good at darts Accession
- An own Ferengi Rule of Acquisition (#286) is named after him:
When Morn leaves, it's all over. Rivals
However, this rule has been quite obviously made up by Quark.
- In "Destiny", Bashir mentions that "Morn came by the Infirmary...It turns
out he had a bad glass of kanar." Kira's in disbelief, saying she didn't
think anything could hurt him (or something like that).
- Morn's the first person to greet Quark when he reopens the bar in "The
Way of the Warrior".
- He's about to tell Quark about his personal problems, but Quark decides
to talk to Commander Sisko instead in the teaser of
- He was finishing a
seemingly boring conversation with Dr. Bashir, but Morn was cut off from
speaking by Dax, much to the joy of the good doctor in "Starship Down".
- He is seen talking to Rohdia
(a Dabo girl) during Quark's testimony. About to speak, but cut off but
Ch'Pok the Klingon Advocate. "Rules of Engagement"
- He can be spotted in the background, talking with StarFleet officers at Quark's in "Playing God"
- He has romantic feelings for Dax, as can be seen in Fascination
- He just doesn't get Andorian jokes, even such classics like the one Quark tells him in
Homefront: "Then the Andorian said: `This is not my
- He suffered from Quark's slightly unconventional style of playing darts
- In Looking for par'Mach in all the Wrong Places he has made the experience that it's a bad idea being between a Klingon, who's in par'maH, and the women he is fancying.
- In Doctor Bashir, I Presume he was extensively interviewed by Dr. Luis Zimmerman director of the EMH/LMH projects on Jupiter station.
- He is very worried about the prospect of a war with the Dominion. In Blaze of Glory he went berzerk after Quark outlined the possibility of such a war and what it would mean to the station.
- He is a fan of 22nd century earth paintings. At least, he bought a picture of a Martian colony from that period in one of Quark's auctions in In the Cards.
The following text is a posting to a Star Trek mailing list by Steve J. Rogers:
Why Morn is better than Sisko:
- Morn, Ben Sisko, do I NEED to say anything else?
- Quark made up a Rule of Aquisiton just for Morn: "When Morn goes, it's over".
- It takes 14 hours for the guy to get into the Morn costume and makeup,
now that is cool.
- Morn just lives life at Quark's, nothing bothers him, and he doesn't
bother anyone, but Sisko has a constant chip on his shoulder.
- Morn has never said a word yet, while Sisko always has to open his big mouth.
- Morn has his own category in SKYBOX's 30th anniversary set. (Phase II's
- Morn has been on a date with Jazdia Dax. Sisko had to go into a whole
other universe just to bag her.
- Morn constantly gets away with sleeping on benchs, and he does it again
after Odo takes him back this quarters.
- Morn seems to be patterned after the great barfly of the Boston bar
Cheers for many years, Norm Peterson.
- Morn could whup Sisko's bald butt(and head) any day.
The following text is a posting to a Star Trek mailing list by B Andrews:
Top ten reasons why Morn doesn't say anything:

four and five over a five day period)
- He's afraid Quark will take up darts again.
