Aron Eisenberg Passes Away at 50

The news comes from his widow, who shared the information on Facebook on Saturday night. The actor, aged 50, worked in Hollywood during the ‘80s and ‘90s, though he was best known for the role of Nog in Deep Space Nine. Over seven seasons, viewers got to know Nog, the first Ferengi to join Starfleet, where he eventually reached the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. Nog was a fantastic character, and Eisenberg imbued him with a distinct and powerful sense of life.


Cause of death is unknown at this time.

Deep Space Nine is described as “dark,” “edgy,” and “the black sheep” of the Star Trek family – a show that did not fit in Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. 20 years after it left the airwaves, fans all over the world continue to watch Deep Space Nine with the same affection they feel for the other Star Trek series.

IDW Publishing is launching a major new Star Trek comic book series, titled Star Trek: Year Five, which will tell the story of the final year of the Enterprise’s original five-year mission to seek out new life and new civilizations. As Starfleet’s flagship returns home, the series will investigate how each member of the iconic crew feels about the uncertain future that awaits them as they reach Earth.

The series will be written by a rotating team of talent, with a writer’s room made up of Brandon Easton, Jody Houser, Jim McCann and the team of Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing. The latter two will be responsible for the opening arc of the series, to be illustrated by Stephen Thompson.

This isn’t the first time that the end of the five-year mission — the first three years of which form the three seasons of the original Star Trek television series — have been featured in Trek fiction; indeed, the animated series of 1973-1974 is assumed to be set during the final two years of that mission. However, Year Five will be the first extended storyline set definitively during the conclusion of the original mission, and the series has, according to landing, “a beginning, a game-changing middle, and a definite end.”
