Starfleet’s first Ferengi has left us. Aron Eisenberg, best known to Trekkers as Nog on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has died at the age of 50. In addition to Star Trek, Aron’s other TV credits included Tales from the Crypt, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, The Wonder Years, General Hospital, and The Secret World of Alex Mack. His film appearances included The Liar’s Club, Puppet Master III, and Streets. He also performed on stage.
Alongside fellow DS9 performers Max Grodénchik, Chase Masterson, and Cecily Adams he performed sketches as the “Ferengi Family Hour” for several Star Trek conventions.
Eisenberg had been plagued with kidney issues all his life. He underwent transplants as a teenager and again as recently as late 2015. These procedures limited his growth to 5 feet.
Our condolences to Aron’s family and friends.
