Eisenberg was best known for his portrayal of Nog in Deep Space Nine, playing the beloved character from 1993 to 1999 in 47 episodes, notably becoming the first Ferengi officer in Starfleet.

In the wake of his passing, his co-stars, collaborators, and fans have taken to social media to pay their respects. StarTrek.com wrote a loving obituary, while fans in r/StarTrek and r/DaystromInstitute are sharing their memories of the actor.
