For the wiki term, please see Memory Alpha:Orphan.

An orphan or half-orphan is a child who has been permanently separated from both or one of its parents for some reason, most often as a result of the parents' death. Often, foster parents adopt the orphan. This can result in a name change of the child or even in a rejection of its previous identity/culture. (TNG: "Suddenly Human"; DS9: "Cardassians"; VOY: "Scorpion")

Cardassian children were abandoned on Bajor following the occupation. Bajorans accepted these war orphans because they did not blame the children for the misdeeds of the Cardassian government. (DS9: "Cardassians")

In 2370, Quark publicly promised that all proceeds from a racquetball match between Miles O'Brien and Julian Bashir would go to the Bajoran Fund for Orphans. (DS9: "Rivals")

After being conned by Dala and Mobar using a story about orphans on Narva, Neelix once remarked "Orphans! It's the oldest gambit in the book." (VOY: "Live Fast and Prosper")
