Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s Nog gets memento in a new ship model.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine featured a threesome of Ferengi relatives that, despite their looks, endeared themselves to Trek fans for years during the show’s run and for decades since. The family was led by the patriarch Quark, the owner of the Deep Space Nine bar named after himself. Quark had a brother named Rom and Rom’s son named Nog. As Ferengi, they were supposed to value making gold-pressed latinum over all else.
But Rom wanted to be an engineer and his son a Starfleet officer. That’s exactly what they did, and his son ended up serving on the U.S.S. Defiant as a cadet during the Dominion War. He was the first Ferengi to do so, and because of that, he became a legend among the fans.
The man who played Nog, Aron Eisenberg, also became beloved in the fandom and was a fixture for years on the Star Trek convention circuit. Unfortunately, Eisenberg passed away at just 50 years old in 2019.
Since then the franchise has found unique ways to honor both him and the character he played.
You can now purchase the Eisenberg-class vessel named after Nog
The folks at Star Trek created a vessel named after both the actor Aron Eisenberg, as well as a ship named after his character. The U.S.S. Nog was created for Star Trek: Discovery and belonged to a new class of vessels called the Eisenberg class.
The ship is named after the character, while the class of the ship is named after the dearly departed actor.
Now you can own that ship, thanks to Hero Collection. TrekCore.com highlighted the ship that should be available for sale in April, and you can check out images for that, as well as the U.S.S. Titan and the U.S.S. Prometheus HERE.
