ShutterBugTrekker - Let's chat about your change before we get into an RV war. I read your paragraph as missing some vital bits (eg, you never mention that he's made Grand Nagus explicitly). Additionally, since you end the sentence with the embezzlement item, it seems to put undue stress on that. Instead of getting into some reversion fight, can we change the language a little so that new readers will get relevant info instead of a focused examination that minutae? Thanks!

I just caught part of the Star Trek: TNG season 5 episode, 'The Perfect Mate', and I'm nearly certain one of the Ferengi was Max Grodénchik. I didn't catch his name though, so I don't know if he's supposed to be Rom. Can someone confirm? --Gero 23:46, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
You are correct. Max Grodénchik is one of those Ferengi, but he's not Rom. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:53, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Watching some of the first season again it seems like Rom's character was initially somewhat different than what he became. First season Rom seems kind of cantankerous and not as unconventional, by Ferengi standards, as later. Also there was no initial indication he was an engineering genius, quite the contrary, and I remember he was somewhat more devious in the early seasons. Later he sort-of became a lovable goof. The thing is these are observations so I can';t really source them. Did the writers ever speak of their view of the character changing or evolving? (Bashir was another who changed a good deal. First season Bashir is condescending and overly flirtatious. Later he becomes much more sympathetic)--T. Anthony (talk) 05:18, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
Rom's character doesn't start coming off as anything other than goofy until "Necessary Evil" when he's opening that chemist shop's lock. Even in the second episode he sounds and acts differently than the rest of the episodes in the series. His second-season character is arguably more different from his first-season character than any other characters. The only possible contender to that is Odo. I still don't know how he gets knocked unconscious by a falling rock... 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
