The Ferengi (singular: Ferengi) are a fictional race of aliens from the later incarnations of the Star Trek television series. They appear most prominently in the series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, in which one of the main characters is a Ferengi barkeeper named Quark.

The Ferengi have a code of ethics laid out in a set of rules called the Rules of Acquisition. These are numbered, each rule having a number in the range 1 to 285. Each gives a titbit of advice that all good Ferengi should follow in order to lead a profitable life. "Profitable" is to be interpreted here in the sense of "making money", for this is the principal virtue in the eyes of the traditional Ferengi. For example, the first Rule of Acquisition is, "Once you have their money, you never give it back."

A Ferengi would sell their mother if it would bring them latinum[?]. Latinum is the principal form of currency to the Ferengi, who use it as we use money.

The Ferengi live on a planet called Ferenginar[?].

Ferengi are small compared to humans, and the males have big earlobes, which are erogenous zones[?]. The traditional laws of the Ferengi are highly sexist by human standards, forbidding females from making profit or indeed wearing clothes.
