Actor Aron Eisenberg, DEEP SPACE NINE’s Nog, Dies at 50

Quote

Ferengi troublemaker Nog started off on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as a bad influence on young Jake Sisko, only to grow into one of the most well-rounded characters on the series — through learning to become a good friend to the station commander’s son, working to convince others that he was more than just a profit-seeking Ferengi, finding his way into Starfleet and eventually struggling to overcome his own personal trauma after a wartime injury.

The TrekCore team was saddened to learn last night that the man behind Nog’s struggles and successes, actor Aron Eisenberg, has passed away at the age of 50, as announced by his wife on social media.

Quote

Aron Eisenberg, who played the Ferengi Nog in all seven seasons of Deep Space Nine, as well as appearing as Kar in an episode of Voyager, died on September 21. The much-loved actor was honored by fans in Star Trek Online—in which he also appeared, voicing Nog during the tutorial—with a torchlight vigil at Quark's Bar.

Other players posted images of the vigil both on the subreddit and the Facebook page What Happens on the Holodeck, Stays on the Holodeck.


This .........  Really hurts.  :waah:

I've started rewatching all his episodes of DS9.  I think I will be watching these for a while.

People have been posting favorite clips and videos in memory, as well.  :humble:











And some real life videos too.  (I believe you will have to click to view these.)

This one is ... the most adorable thing ever:

Every story I read from people who knew him, or met him at a con or online, is amazing.  They tell of the warmest, kindest, most caring person, always wanting to make people smile.

I'm sure there are more stories like this from members here who have met him.  I would love to hear some of them, from whomever wishes to share.  :heart:

I just heard about this yesterday what a shocker.  I can't even grasp the concept of Nog at 50, let alone him dying at 50.  :cry:

RIP, Aron Eisenberg.  :(

His son is organizing a memorial for Aron online, and everyone is invited.  Really, everyone!  It will take place in World of Warcraft, and if you don't have a WoW account, apparently anyone can make a trial account just to attend.

It is tomorrow, Sunday 9/29/19 @ 7-8pm PST.

There is also a GoFundMe drive set up to help his family with funeral costs etc.  This is being organized by Megan Elise (wife of Garrett Wang), and it is the real deal.

When I first posted this thread, the fundraiser had been temporarily paused while they were checking on tax implications.  (The point is to help the family, not add new problems).  But it is re-open now that they got their answers.  Here is the link:

Also, there is this art auction, to benefit the family as well:

I can't join the memorial, but I added a donation.  What a bunch of great friends and relatives he has.

This is heartbreaking news. I am glad to see the fan community rallying around and helping the family.
