Welcome to the New Mark Allen Shepherd Website
Welcome to the all new Official Mark Allen Shepherd website.
I have been programming Mark’s official website since 1999 and it used to be kept at http://www.garrisonent.com/morn however I thought it was far overdue to give him his own domain name.
Mark Allen Shepherd plays Morn, a humanoid alien from the Ionite Nebula that frequents the space station at Deep Space Nine. He’s found to be quite the regular at Quark’s bar. Morn is a ladies man, even Dax has commented that she finds the few hairs on the top of Morn’s head attractive.
Mark Allen Shepherd’s story is one of Star Trek’s coolest, quirkiest and most unusual tales. For the entire seven-year run of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Shepherd played Morn, the alien barfly who frequented Quark’s, apparently was the life of the party, but never uttered a word – at least not on camera.
We have links his multiple listings on the internet, along with his original videos, original writings, photo galleries, and will continue to add content as we get it from Mark.
We have officially launched the new site on December 24, 2012 please create and account to post comments and enjoy the site.

Mark in the German News
This article was in the in the paper in Germany.
Morn Man Shepherd Toasts “Who Mourns?”
I have always been a huge Star Trek fan. Playing Morn on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was a wish come true. It didn’t matter to me whether Morn spoke or not, but when the Star Trek writers and producers decided to make “Who Mourns for Morn?” I knew that it was the biggest compliment they could ever pay me. So, when Star Trek.com asked me to write a piece to commemorate the 15-year anniversary of “Who Mourns for Morn?” I couldn’t resist.
Ever since I was a child I’ve dreamed about what it would be like to travel to the stars. Imagined what it must be like to fly like Superman. Marveled at the potential of the human mind and admired the indelible dynamism of the human spirit. The ingenuity of great thinkers and the ability to overcome great obstacles and to achieve great things are for me like music for the soul. Continue reading

Mark Allen Shepherd Was Born to be Morn – Part 1 on StarTrek.com
Mark Allen Shepherd’s story is one of Star Trek’s coolest, quirkiest and most unusual tales. For the entire seven-year run of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Shepherd played Morn, the alien barfly who frequented Quark’s, apparently was the life of the party, but never uttered a word – at least not on camera. Beyond portraying Morn, who was a Lurian, Shepherd appeared on DS9 as a Starfleet civilian and even as a Bajoran asked to sit in Morn’s usual spot at Quark’s after Morn’s supposed death. Shepherd also made cameos as Morn on Voyager and The Next Generation. And Shepherd’s contributions to Star Trek didn’t end there. Also a talented artist, Shepherd licensed two dozen pieces of his artwork to the DS9 production team, pieces which were used to decorate the quarters of several major characters, including Major Kira and Dr. Bashir. StarTrek.com recently caught up with Shepherd, who now lives in Germany, for an exclusive two-part interview in which he recounted his days on DS9 and filled us in on what he’s doing now. Below is part one of our conversation, and be on the lookout tomorrow for part two. Continue reading

Hi There, Spring has Sprung! Everywhere (except the Southern Hemisphere) the life of new buds, leaves and flowers emerge from the cold dark winter. The I Ching (Chinese book of changes) represents Springtime with “Chen” a hexagram which translates approximately as “Thunder.” An excellent time of year for new ideas and promoting new projects.
I’m currently busy digitally remastering (soon to be released) “HunTon FunOne” a remix of “Slappy Woot” a Plural Dolt music Cd that I originally produced about five years ago. At that time we were distributing the recording as an audio cassette and were somewhat limited by the technology that we had at that time. Now, Wow is all I can say about the new CD. It’s like when they switched over from black and white to color in “The Wizard of OZ.” Anyway, I’m very excited about the changes think audiences will find “HunTon FunOne” my wildest and craziest Cd yet. You’ll tell your friends “WOW I’ve never heard anything quite like it… It’s like Frank Zappa meets Spike Jones on Forbidden planet… definitely Morn’s wildest and craziest CD yet!” Continue reading
