Really sad to hear, and only 50 years old. He had health issues relating to being born with just one kidney, but I don't think it's confirmed that it caused his death.StarTrek.com is saddened to report the passing of Aron Eisenberg, the beloved actor who portrayed Nog in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Eisenberg's wife, Malíssa Longo — confirmed on Facebook that he passed away today, on September 21, at the age of 50.
Eisenberg, described himself as "actor, filmmaker and proud father" and was a professional photographer who shot landscapes, concerts, corporate photography, portraits and more. Eisenberg's earliest credits included an episode of the series Straight Up, the TV movie Amityville: The Evil Escapes and the features The Horror Show, Playroom and Beverly Hills Brats, all in the late 1980s.
Here's a part of one of my favorite episodes of DS9 that featured Nog. He will leave a positive, lasting legacy on millions, even after his passing. Rest in peace.
