Here's some annoying fanon: "Kirk was born in Iowa."
That from the original Star Trek (TOS) writer's guide, the shows "bible."

That Kirk is from Iowa is repeated in the 1968 book The Making of Star Trek.

Exactly. That Latinum can't be replicated or can only be replicated using extreme amounts of energy makes perfect sense. End of discussion.
My personal "fanon" explanation is that the replicator can't make living organisms, so what latinum is is a living organism (maybe like a slime mold) that can only reproduce in a unusual biological environment on Ferengar. It lives inside it's gold container and very slowly feeds off of it.
