Morn Dies

Story: Who Mourns for Morn?
Written By: Mark Gehred-O'Connell
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1998

What a fantastic episode…so much fun. When news hits the station that lovable bar staple Morn has died, everyone is hit hard, even Quark. The tables turn when Quark learns he has inherited everything owned by Morn. But as Quark learns of Morn’s hidden riches, he also meets some of Morn’s acquaintances…and he seems to have inherited Morn’s troubles as well.
It is one of my favorites, in terms of sheer fun. It is hilarious and wacky in all the right places. Morn has been in the show since “Emissary”, and it is the first episoe really centered on our character that never talks on camera. The only way to focus on him without having talk is to have him hardly in it. I’m also glad Morn didn’t actually die…it made it all the funnier.
