Explaining errors in Star Trek Wiki
According to Memory Alpha's original in Universe Timeline, the story sequence is: The Magnificent Ferengi : Who Mourns for Morn? : Far Beyond the Stars.


When Quark learns that his most frequent guest Morn has died, he arranges a memorial party in his bar as an opportunity to make some profit. But the truly startling news is that Quark turns out to be the sole heir of Morn's property. Soon Quark has four aliens on his heels: Morn's ex-wife Larell who tells Quark about one thousand bars of latinum in the inheritance, the two brothers Krit and Nahsk who attempt to overwhelm him and Hain who claims to be a security officer and demands Larell's extradition. But actually they are all accomplices of the infamous Lissepian Mother's Day Heist, with Morn being the fifth. The bars of gold they eventually find are all empty, however. Morn has actually faked his death and stored all the precious latinum in one of his stomachs. The accomplices are arrested, whereas Morn remains unscathed.

Errors and Explanations

Internet Movie Database

Incorrectly regarded as goofs

  1. After Quark suggested to split the 1000 Bricks of Latinum five ways, one of the aliens said 250 bricks each. One thousand divided five ways is two hundred. This shows how "slow" the alien is as referenced by his brother in the cargo bay.. SeniramUK (talk) 12:35, 18 February 2021 (UTC) Either that or he was letting slip a subconcious desire to deprive Quark of his share!

Nit Central

  1. Hans Thielman on Tuesday, December 08, 1998 - 3:23 pm: What authority did Sisko have to unilaterally and without notice to interested parties unseal Morn's will? Morn wasn't in Starfleet or even a member of the Bajoran milita; he was a civilian. Charles Cabe (Ccabe) on Tuesday, December 08, 1998 - 8:25 pm: Sisko would probably have authority over the will, assuming Morn claimed residency at DS9.
  2. Did Morn have a life insurance policy? If yes, perhaps because of his scam, Morn could expect to be investigated for insurance fraud. dotter31 on Wednesday, May 17, 2006 - 8:55 pm: Morn wasn't trying to defraud a life insurance company, he was trying to defraud his criminal partners(who can't sue him for the proceeds of a criminal act). I would assume that if any life insurance was paid out that Morn gave it back.
  3. Norman on Wednesday, February 24, 1999 - 5:50 am: Why doesn't Quark have Odo investigate Morn's widow's claims? It would make sense. I'd understand with a war, that Odo may have no time to investigate this, but Quark could've at least asked. He knew any such request would have made Odo suspicious!
  4. Gordon Davie on Monday, January 11, 1999 - 3:27 pm: Quark considered that the gold was worthless after the latinum had been extracted. Yet in Little Green Men he was quite willing to accept gold in payment for the technology he was trying to sell to the US military. Lea Frost on Wednesday, March 03, 1999 - 7:07 pm: Yeah, but in LGM he was in the 20th century, where gold does have a great deal of value since it obviously *can't* be replicated! I assume he'd be willing to accept whatever the medium of exchange is for the time...
  5. Keith Alan Morgan on Saturday, May 01, 1999 - 5:57 am: Hanes brushed his cheek with the barrel of his gun. Oh, that's a smart move, especially if his gun went off accidentally. Depends if the safety catch is on!
