Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Ferengi Desiccated Remains Display/Storage Box
replica movie prop
The Ferengi death ritual consists primarily of preserving a Ferengi body after death by means of vacuum desiccation. The process results in the Ferengi's body being reduced to a near powder, which is often stored in a set of fifty-two disks, marked with the Ferengi Seal of Dismemberment, and sold as a collectible on the Ferengi Futures Exchange.The status of the Ferengi in life determines the price set on a disk of their remains. In 2369 the purported vacuum desiccated remains of Grand Nagus Zek were selling for 20 bars of latinum per disk.
Ferengi would display their discs in adorned display/storage boxes of varying sizes. Quark's display box can be seen in season 2 episode "The Alternate" when Odo pretends to be interested in buying a disc before he is distracted by Dr. Mora.
