Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Who Mourns for Morn? (1993–1999)

Mark Allen Shepherd, in addition to his regular role as Morn, appears as a Bajoran officer whom Quark asks to sit in Morn's usual place at the bar.

In the episode several characters mention how talkative and emotional Morn was. However, throughout the entire series Morn never uttered a word.

Quark reveals that 'latinum' is a liquid, which is why it is 'pressed' inside of gold.

With 92 appearances, Morn, a "recurring" character, appeared in more episodes of Deep Space Nine than Jake Sisko, a "regular" character with only 71 appearances.

Along with Quark, Q, and Evek, Morn is one of only four characters to appear in all three Star Trek series based in the 24th century: Star Trek: La nouvelle génération (1987), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager (1995).

The matador painting in Morn's quarters is the object he bought from Quark's auction in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: In the Cards (1997).

Although Morn never speaks in the series he did laugh in "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) {The Nagus (#1.16)}_.

This episode was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Makeup for a Series for Michael Westmore.

Mark O'Connell's original idea for this show involved Morn mysteriously disappearing from the station, and the rest of the cast trying to hunt him down. Then during their search, they realize that although they have all known him for six years (apart from Worf), none of them actually know very much about him.

"Morn" is an anagram for Norm, the barfly played by George Wendt in the TV show Cheers (1982). (Star Trek Encyclopedia) The manner in which Dax shouts his name upon seeing the hologram at Quark's is reminiscent of the greeting Norm would usually receive as soon as he walked into Cheers.

In the German dub of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) {The Jem'Hadar (#2.26)}_ Morn does speak. He was just about to tell Quark what was troubling him when Quark simply walked away. Resigned, Morn mutters, "Dann nicht..." (roughly meaning "So much for that..."). These words are not uttered in the original English version.

Morn, Julian Bashir, Quark, Gul Evek and Admiral Chekote are the only characters to appear in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine prior to appearing in Star Trek: La nouvelle génération (1987).

A Latinum brick from this episode was sold off on an online auction.

Aside from Mark Allen Shepherd, Dennis Madalone is the only stunt performer or actor to have portrayed Morn. In "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) {Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places (#5.13)}_, there is one stunt scene in which Morn is thrown from his bar stool by Worf.

Gregory Itzin has appeared in five episodes spanning three spin-off series of the Star Trek franchise. He has played Ilon Tandro in "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) {Dax (#1.8)}_, Hain in DS9: "Who Mourns For Morn?", Dr. Dysek in Star Trek: Voyager: Critical Care (2000), Captain Sopek in Star Trek: Enterprise: Shadows of P'Jem (2002), and Admiral Black in Star Trek: Enterprise: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II (2005).

This takes place in 2374.

Morn is one of five characters to appear in both "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) {Emissary (#1.1)}_ and _"Star Trek: Voyager" {Caretaker (#1.1)}_ (premieres of their respective series), the others being Quark, Jean-Luc Picard, Broik and Miles O'Brien.

A character named Morn owns a pub in the Inheritance fantasy book series by Christopher Paolini. According to The Inheritance Almanac, the character was named after the Morn from Deep Space Nine.

The wardrobe worn by an attendant at the memorial service at Quark's is a reuse of Minister Kray's outfit from Star Trek: Voyager: Ex Post Facto (1995).

47 Reference: Morn's storage locker is number 137 (1+3=4,7).

The noise Morn makes when he regurgitates the latinum at the end, took supervising sound editor Mace Matiosian several days of Foley recording and over six hours of editing to complete.

The latinum expelled into the glass was a CG effect.
