Morn Facts

Morn FactsmorntransaMark 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.

Quark knows that when Morn leaves the bar he might as well close up for the night and went so far as to suggest a new Ferengi “rule of acquisition” in order to describe it. Quark on occasion lets Morn run the bar.

Morn will more likely be around for a long time as Jake Sisko finds Morn running the bar sometime in the future.
