    Quote:
    Rom tried to murder Quark a few times so he would inherit the bar in the early seasons, didn't he? Of course they softened his character and I think they softened all the Ferengi as they went. Would a typical Ferengi kill for profit? I suppose it's a risk/reward question. Most of them would probably be too cowardly to take the risk. Genocide would be a greater risk because it would attract more attention, so I would think most of them would shy away from it.



    Quote:
    Morally speaking, would they be bothered by it? Some probably would. Didn't the producers say that the Ferengi basically represented 20th century humans, as opposed to the morally superior 24th century humans?


I believe in the middle east in many languages the word for foreigner is something like Farangi or Ferenji. I think that's always been the joke...the Ferengi are westerners.
