[I wish we could have seen Prinadora, Rom’s first wife and Nog’s mom.]

Editor’s Note: The 6th season episode “Change of Heart” had a B-plot written that would have featured Rom’s ex-wife/Nog’s mother Prindadora, but it was cut for time reasons before being filmed. The Ferengi Family actors (Aron Eisenberg, Max Grodenchik, Chase Masterson) used to perform said B-plot at conventions on occasion, with Grodenchik’s wife/Trek pre-production coordinator Lolita Fatjo filling the role of Prinadora.

[I love thinking about how history will describe Rom after the end of DS9: “Grand Nagus Rom was responsible for major reforms in Ferengi society, and was also a technological genius who made several contributions to the Alliance efforts in the Dominion War. His mother, Ishka, was a pioneering feminist activist, and his wife Leeta also contributed to Rom’s successes. His son, Nog, was the first Ferengi to join Starfleet. He also had a brother who owned a bar on an old space station.”]
