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.
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.
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.
