For the mirror universe counterpart, see Ferenginar (mirror).

Ferenginar (also known as Ferengal) is a class M planet, the fourth planet of the Ventarus Idrilon star system. Located in the space of the galaxy's Alpha Quadrant, Ferenginar is the homeworld of the Ferengi civilization, and the seat of government for the Ferengi Alliance. (DS9 episode: "Family Business", Last Unicorn RPG module: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Narrator's Toolkit)

History and specifics

Many large cities are present around the planet, but the capital city is by far the most impressive city on Ferenginar. Due to the near-constant levels of torrential rain, the buildings are kept under domes, to keep the Ferengi dry. Dominating the capital city is a huge spire, the Tower of Commerce, which marks the Sacred Marketplace, and the seat of government for the Grand Nagus of the Ferengi Alliance. (DS9 episode: "Family Business")


Spock had heard of Ferenginar in 2268. (TOS novella: The Badlands, Part I)

In the 2350s, the Great Monetary Collapse hit Ferenginar. Inflation soared, the currency was devalued. (DS9 episode: "Homefront")

In 2374, Ferenginar descended into financial chaos after Zek amended the Ferengi Bill of Opportunities to allow females equal status to males. There was so much buying and selling the communications grid shut down and a communications blackout occurred. (DS9 episode: "Profit and Lace")

After being helped back into power by Nilva, Zek continued his reforms including the introduction of tax, labor rights and the banning of the dumping of industrial waste. The newly established Economic Congress also passed some new laws, including making monopolies illegal. (DS9 episode: "The Dogs of War")
