Question Quark Question

Of all the people who could ask this question...I guess it had to be myself lol! Anyway: Why was Quark the only one who didn't wear a cloth around the back of his neck?

Because he was a main character and as such the only Ferengi the production company was willing to spend a complete latex mask for, instead of just hiding the back hair of the actor with a cheap piece of fabric.

Makes sense! But I mean, it doesn't cover all that much, lol! But still, good point and I'm sure you're right.

This is actually the REAL answer. I saw a speciel feature (don't remember which) and the piece of cloth was used instead of making the needed latex part and make-up. It was a cheaper way of doing things. Did they ever show Rom without the cloth? I think they did.

I think it's time to give Section 31 a call and ask why they kept certain information about ourselves classified about...ourselves...yeah. :P

Rom didn't wear a "cloth" when he was batting for the Niners in Take me out to the Holosuite.

Although incidentally Quark did wear one in Looking for Par'Mach... when he was fighting that other guy who's name I can't remember 'cos I'm too bloody tired right now lol. But I will. I think in this case it was to hide the control device connecting him to Worf.
