Aron Eisenberg, who played the Ferengi character Nog on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, died on Saturday at the age of 50.
His death was announced by his wife Malissa Longo in a Facebook post.
“It is with extreme regret and sadness to announce that my love and best friend, Aron Eisenberg, passed away earlier today.” She wrote.
Details of Eisenberg’s death were not revealed. However, I n the post, Longo revealed that she and Eisenberg were married in 2018.
“We didn’t officially announce that we had eloped on December 28th, 2018. We were hoping to have a big shindig in celebration of our nuptials, but had to wait to save up the money. While, our marriage, on paper, was a short one. Our hearts had been married for far longer. I will be forever thankful for the time we had to love each other. Five years felt like a lifetime, in the best possible ways. There will never be another light like Aron’s. The beauty that he was and the legacy he leaves behind is beyond words. I love him dearly and will miss him eternally.”
In addition to Deep Space Nine, Eisenberg’s on-screen work included TV shows Tales from the Crypt, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, The Wonder Years, and General Hospital. He also appeared in films including Puppet Master III, Streets, House 3 and The Liars’ Club. He most recently appeared in the Deep Space Nine documentary “What We Left Behind.”
A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up to offset the costs of his funeral. To contribute, you can visit gofundme.com/f/aron-eisenberg-memorial.

I most of the time clinch between $6,000 to $8,000 almost every 1 month via internet. Haven’t you realized that the future is in the online arena whether or not online marketing or just working for businesses that are based and hire online workers. If you don’t do it today you will always regret it sooner or later you will be force to make the change however, you won’t be in the driver’s chair any longer. So what are the advantages to having the capacity to generate money on the web? Well there are a few. For one there’s increased capacity to automate and therefore be functioning while, you are sleeping. You also don’t need to work in the uncomfortable and typical work environment. You can work when you need and this includes more flexibility to take that needed vacation whenever. You can work where you need –at home, at the library, in the coffee shop, in your cabin, or on your Caribbean cruise. You might also wear exactly what you would like, I favor sweat pants and a T-shirt you may like your bath robe. Other huge advantages to a”earn money online” type of job are that you don’t need to think about product whether or not storage, distribution, tech assistance, you name it. So this sounds good right? What exactly are you waiting for? Oh. . .you think that the initial risk of quitting your job to make money online is too large? Well then do not stop your job! You are able to easily keep both a normal job and an internet income at the exact same time and you will find very soon that you don’t have anything to fear. So please don’t wait, now is your chance to beat the mad rush and at the pace that makes you comfortable. ->-> ya.mba/2Wq

Aron was the most positive and high-energy guest at Trek conventions, and he always came across as a very kind man. I’m sure I speak for many when I say I will miss him.

I might add this article should have made mention of Aron’s work in Renegades, Star Trek Online and Star Trek Voyager. (His guest shot on the latter was especially good.)
