'Star Trek' Star Aron Eisenberg Dead at 50

Aron Eisenberg, who played Nog from the Star Trek spin-off "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" is dead as confirmed by his widow.  Though the cause of Eisenberg's death was not revealed, he was said to have died at the age of 50.

"He was an intelligent, humble, funny, emphatic soul," Eisenberg's wife Malíssa Longo posted on Facebook.

"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. At the moment I'm not sure how to do life without him."

The Star Trek star was born with one kidney which failed and he went on dialysis at age 14. He underwent his first transplant when he was 17 and another when he was 46. Eisenberg's kidney issue led to a stunted growth as he was just 5' tall. He also part of the cast for "Amityville: The Evil Escapes" and "The Horror Show," "Beverly Hills Brats" and "Playroom." In all, he has over 30 credits.
