Deep Space Nine: Nog

Nog is the first Ferengi to join Starfleet. He worked for his uncle Quark in his bar, until deciding to pursue a life better than that of Rom, his father. This is a standard Starfleet duty uniform and we first see Nog wearing it season 6 'Sacrifice Of Angels'. He continues to be seen wearing it in many Deep Space Nine episodes up to and including the finale 'What You Leave Behind'.

Because of Aron Eisenberg's size, I had to put this on a female mannequin (sorry Aron!). I realize this is not a typical Ferengi costume, and this First Contact style uniform itself isn't unique, but when coupled with the matching Ferengi headwrap, it is all the more special.

Interesting facts:  There were three of this style of Ferengi uniform made for Aron, plus one stunt version for Nancy Thurston.  Mine is complete with jumpsuit, shirt, and headwrap all with Aron Eisenberg's name in each component.
