    It is with great heartache and loss I share with you the passing of dear,dear Rene Auberjonois.His last message to me was entitled "Don't forget..." I know that I,Kitty,and all that knew him will never forget.The world seems noticeably emptier now. I loved him.
    - Armin Shimerman, "Quark" on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    I love and respect Rene more than I can say right now. This beautiful soul. My heart. Oh
    - Nana Visitor, "Kira Nerys" on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    I cannot express how much you meant to me. I will truly miss you my dear colleague, mentor, father figure, friend.
    - Terry Farrell, "Jadzia Dax" on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    @reneauberjonois @DS9Doc the universe has one more shining light today. Thank you for casting me as Captain Kassidy Yates. I will think of you always R.I.P.
    - Penny Johnson Jerald, "Kasidy Yates" on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    Heartbroken. I lost a cherished friend today and the world lost a great artist.
    Peace, René.
    - Jeffrey Combs, "Brunt" and "Weyoun" in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, "Shran" in Star Trek: Enterprise

    Rest in Paradise, @reneauberjonois. You were nothing but kind and loving to myself and everyone you met. You are with the stars now
    - Hana Hatae, "Molly O'Brien" on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    (a photo of them together)
    - Ira Steven Behr, Executive Producer on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    Rene Auberjonois was a wonderful actor and an even better human being. It was an honor to write for him. A class act in every possible way. I'm heartbroken. "And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest." #DS9 When Rene was cast as Odo, he joked "I hope #DS9 will replace Benson on my tombstone." He will be remembered for both, for Boston Legal, for The Little Mermaid, & so much more. His portrayal of Odo, under all that latex, was subtle, emotional, & astounding. One of the greats.
    - Robert Hewitt Wolfe, writer on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    I have just heard about the death of my friend and fellow actor @reneauberjonois. To sum up his life in a tweet is nearly impossible. To Judith, Tessa & Remy I send you my love & strength. I will keep you in my thoughts and remember a wonderful friendship with René.
    - William Shatner, "Captain Kirk" on Star Trek

    This is a terrible loss. Star Trek fans knew him as Odo from Deep Space Nine. We knew him as René. He was a wonderful, caring, and intelligent man. He shall be missed. When I look out to the stars, I shall think of you, friend.
    - George Takei, "Sulu" on Star Trek

    May [email protected]? RIP he was one our finest actors and an even better man. I always looked up to him and I will continue to.
    - Jonathan Frakes, "Will Riker" in Star Trek: The Next Generation

    @reneauberjonois You were a spectacular artist from Altman film IMAGES to Star Trek: DS9 and the million performances in between. A devoted family man, a visual artist, and loving and loves le human being. Thanks for showing the world how to do it. #love #admiration
    - Gates McFadden, "Dr Crusher" on Star Trek: The Next Generation

    Rene was a great artist, a great man, and a great friend. He will be forever missed by all that knew him. Goodnight Sweet Prince.
    - Brent Spiner, "Data" on Star Trek: The Next Generation

    So sad to read this he was a wonderful man.
    - Jonathan Del Arco, "Hugh" in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Picard

    I was a great fan of Rene the actor before I got to meet the man and enjoy conversations with him. He was always a gentleman. There wasn't an ounce of phony in him. He was an artist of great integrity. My deepest sympathy to Judith, his children, and all who loved him.
    - Robert Beltran, "Chakotay" in Star Trek: Voyager

    Stunned to hear of the passing of @reneauberjonois So very sad at this moment #ripRenéAuberjonois #Odo #StarTrekDS9 He was always a class act and a consummate professional. He and his acting talent will be greatly missed.
    - Garrett Wang, "Harry Kim" on Star Trek: Voyager

    So, so sad.
    RIP, Rene. @reneauberjonois
    - Jeri Ryan, "Seven of Nine" on Star Trek: Voyager

    Way to many friends this year. I’m tired of this. Goodbye Rene, I’ll see you in the infinite. @reneauberjonois Travel well...
    - Manu Intiraymi, "Icheb" on Star Trek: Voyager

    Goodbye, René. We love you.
    - Mike Okuda, production designer on The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager

    Rene Auberjonois 1940~2019.
    A beloved member of our Star Trek family, among so many other decorated achievements on stage and screen. But above all, one of the sweetest humans I have ever met.
    May he rest in God’s peace.
    #ReneAuberjonois #RIP
    - Doug Jones, "Saru" on Star Trek: Discovery

    I am very sad to hear of the passing of René Auberjonois. His work on Deep Space Nine was especially inspiring to me as I approached being in a Star Trek show. And I was delighted to get to spend time with him at STLV, where I learned he was a totally delightful human being. RIP
    - Anthony Rapp, "Paul Stamets" on Star Trek: Discovery

    Thank you for all you gave us, René. What a brilliant talent and beautiful soul. My heart aches over this loss.
    - Mary Chieffo, "L'rell" in Star Trek: Discovery

    - Jayne Brook, "Admiral Cornwell" on Star Trek: Discovery

    So so sad to hear of the passing of René Auberjonois. Deep Space 9 was the show that started my love for Star Trek, and that's in no small part due to his wonderful performance as Odo. May he rest in peace. #DS9 #ReneAuberjonois
    - Erika Lippoldt, writer on Star Trek: Discovery

    (gif of Kira hugging Odo)
    - Bo Yeon Kim, writer on Star Trek: Discovery

    Rest in peace, constable.

    I’m heartbroken. René Auberjonois was one of my favorite actors, period. His roles in M.A.S.H. and Odo in Deep Space 9 were poignant and meaningful. My best to him and condolences to his personal and #StarTrek family.
    - Aaron Waltke, showrunner on the upcoming Nickelodeon Star Trek series

    No words to describe our loss.
    - Shawna Benson, writer on the upcoming Nickelodeon Star Trek series

    It is with deep sadness that we share the loss of another one of our #DS9 family. @reneauberjonois will be remembered for his depth of performance and many contributions to our entertainment community. We are sending all of our love & thanks to his family & friends at this time.
    - What We Left Behind team

    We are indescribably sad to hear of the passing of Star Trek legend @reneauberjonois. Rene was a light in this world, and we're so grateful for the time he gave to our game. Rest in peace.

    Lung cancer...

    I just saw it reported on the Star Trek facebook page, and I literally had to scroll back to see if I had read it correctly.

    I remember his character in Warehouse 13 best, and it's thanks to that one that I remember that left is loose and right is tight, when turning a screw. "Lefty-loosie and righty-tighty."
