AARON EISENBERG, WHO PLAYED NOG ON STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE, DIES AT AGE 50

Source: SyFy.com

Aaron Eisenberg, the actor who played the Ferengi known as "Nog" on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, passed away at the age of 50 yesterday. Born with just one kidney that did not operate at full capacity, Eisenberg struggled with organ failure throughout his life and received two transplants, one at age 17 (he was on dialysis as a teenager) and one at age 46.

The news of his death was confirmed by his wife, Malíssa Longo, on Facebook. Earlier in the day, she had tweeted that Aaron was in the hospital in critical condition.

2. Yes, and Jake's best friend.

Jake was Captain Sisko's son.

Sad to hear this news, as I am a fan of DS9.

4. One of my Trekkie buddies texted me about this

Didn't realize he was that young (at least on the show) although for the character he was playing it would make sense.



R.I.P. from a fan of the show!

14. He wasn't a major character on DS9, but he was one of my favorites.

One of his best scenes was with Avery Brooks in season three, and it was very "Star Trek". An outsider joining the Federation with a drive to be better than they are, and to strive for something greater for everyone. And the fact that they wrote it through the lens of Nog, a Ferengi, was all the better for it. After that point, every episode with Aron in it was an episode to pay attention to.

Here's the scene I mentioned:

18. Bah! Debased currency! Everyone knows that gold-PRESSED latinum is the minting standard.

The FCA will want to have a word with you.
