    Default RIP Aron Eisenberg, 1969-2019

    Don't know the cause yet, but it seems that Aron Eisenberg -- known to us Trek fans as Nog in DS9 -- was rushed to hospital earlier today. Just a few minutes ago, the Twitter account of Ira Steven Behr's DS9 Documentary confirmed that Aron has passed away

    EDIT: Also confirmed by Aron's wife on Facebook

    Awww this is so sad. I'm just a couple of days away from a DS9 rewatch too as I'm showing my partner all of Trek for the first time. This is going to leave a bittersweet note because I just know they're going to adore Nog.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    He'd had health issues for quite some time...I know a few years ago, he'd have died if not for a kidney transplant he received. I'd speculate it's related to that, but then, I have no way of knowing for sure.

    And that was the second of his kidney transplants....he was born with only one and it failed when he was 14 and had to get the first of his transplants then and had to go on dialysis until the transplant was completed

    My friend, my pal, Aron Eisenberg, has left us. Over the years it was always, always a joy to be in his company, to work with him, to play with him, to laugh with him. I admired his courage as he dealt with his lifelong health issues. He was a man filled with passion and love.

    @AronEisenberg was a friend of mine. Tonight it’s hard to think of anything else except maybe to be reminded that all we have is each other to hold on to, to see us through, to give meaning to our lives. It’s going to be a long night.
    - Ira Steven Behr, co-showrunner of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    Heartbreaking news. #DS9’s @AronEisenberg has passed away. Aron delt with health issues his whole life but never let that stop him from living it to the fullest. He was a talented actor and a wonderful person. He will be greatly missed.

    I am shocked and heartbroken that we have lost this amazing human being. RIP my friend.

    Very sad to hear of the passing of my Star Trek brother ?Aron Eisenberg.? Found this video from @DragonCon 2016 that I took of him doing what he loved to do: entertain fans. I will remember him most for his humor and sharp wit. Rest In Peace Aron. You will be missed
    - Garrett Wang, "Ensign Harry Kim" in Star Trek: Voyager

    Aaron. I’ll miss you man. I didn’t see enough of you over these last couple years, and I should have. You were one of if not the most kind, genuine, and beautiful people I knew. R.I.P beautiful soul. See you in the infinite. #startrek #startrekds9 #scifi #rip #aaroneisenberg
    - Manu Intiraymi, "Icheb" in Star Trek: Voyager

    I had the short but sweet pleasure of first meeting Aron at last year’s STLV. Like many others, I am shocked and saddened by this news. He immediately struck me as a lovely, open-hearted, kind, joyful man. I send my best thoughts to his wife and children.
    - Anthony Rapp, "Paul Stamets" in Star Trek: Discovery

    My thoughts are with @AronEisenberg’s family and friends. In the short time I’ve been a member of this #StarTrek family, it became clear what a force Aron was and will remain and how much he is loved by all he encountered. He welcomed us so fully and laughed with us heartily. RIP

    I am so sorry for your loss, Malissa. His support and enthusiasm for Discovery meant the world to me. He will be dearly missed by all.

    Such sad news. Aron expertly portrayed one of the most emotional character journeys in Trek. We just lost a kind, talented guy.
    - Mike McMahan, creator and showrunner of the upcoming Star Trek: Lower Decks

    Aron Eisenberg’s performance on DS9, and his character’s growth over the course of the series, made a profound impression on me as a teenager who was still finding himself. My deepest condolences to his loved ones and Star Trek family.
    - Aaron Waltke, writer on the upcoming Nickelodeon Star Trek series

    We've lost a member of our family today. Rest in Peace, Aron, thank you so much for always brightening our lives with everything you did.
    - Star Trek Online team

    He was a wonderful human being, taken from us far too soon.

    RIP Aron Eisenberg, 1969-2019.
    - Dayton Ward, author of a number of Star Trek novels

    Goddammit.

    @AronEisenberg died yesterday at the age of 50. He was a friend, and we pitched a Nog-focused TREK novel, though it never went anywhere. He was a good person, a great actor; Nog was one of the most compelling characters in TREK history.

    Rest in peace, my friend.
    - Keith R.A. DeCandido, author of a number of Star Trek novels
