Deep Space Nine: Rom

This costume was worn by Rom in just 6 episodes. It made it's first appearance in the Deep Space Nine episode 'Little Green Men' ( as seen below),and lastly in 'Under A Paper Moon', and is one of his best looking Ferengi costumes.

Proving some versatility, Rom wore just the jumpsuit and shirt during baseball training in 'Take Me Out To The Holosuite'.

This particular Ferengi costume is incomplete. It is missing the coat, boots, and headwrap. It appears two of this costume was made, as a complete one had been sold at the 2006 Christie's Star Trek auction. Unfortunately, the fate of the costume is as of yet unknown. For me, this presents a small mystery as all of my costume components say Max Groedenchik. What did the buyer actually get? Is it a hero coat with the rest being stunt? We may never know, but one day I will find out.
