"Who Mourns for Morn?" is another comedic episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" that is about the Ferengi. In this case, it's specifically about Quark and his friend, Morn. When the show begins, you learn that the ever-present Morn has died. The reaction of the folks around the station is quite funny and how everyone talks about him is a great contrast to what you've always seen on the show--a large, hulking and ever-quiet alien. Here, however, you learn a lot more about the guy...after he's died.
One of the odd things about Morn is that he decided to leave his estate to Quark. At first Quark is thrilled--but soon he learns that Morn has left nothing...or next to nothing. I bit later, however, the show becomes a lot like an old film noir piece, as various scum begin showing up and demand a portion of Morn's vast treasure--100 bars of latinum. But where is this latium? And, are these folks ready to kill Quark to get it? What gives?!
This is a cute episode--especially the ending. What I really appreciated, though, is that the show made so many references to how much everyone loved him and how he was such a great talker--all from a character who never said a single word on the show. Worth seeing.
