René Auberjonois Remembered by ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ Castmate Nana Visitor

René Auberjonois Remembered by ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ Castmate Nana Visitor
René came into my life the way he did for so many others; I loved his performance on “Benson” and looked for him in movies and TV ever after. As a young actor, I could see every inch of him was trained to tell stories: His body, face and voice moved with ease and authority. I wanted to be like that. I would watch other actors I admired in those early days and play the game of “Who would you want to sit next to at dinner if you got the chance?” and René was always on that list.

After working with him on “Deep Space Nine” for seven years of long days and nights, and then 20 years of doing “Star Trek” conventions around the world with him, I was lucky enough to spend many dinners with him. And he was even more fascinating as a friend than I could have imagined.

Star Trek Stars Pay Tribute To Deep Space Nine’s Rene Auberjonois

Heartbreak swept through the Star Trek community last night as we learned that Rene Auberjonois had passed away at the age of 79 after suffering from lung cancer. The actor is best remembered to fans of the franchise for his performance as Odo on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and thanks to his place in the Trek world, he was a well-loved part of the family and his fellow stars poured onto social media last night to honor and pay tribute to their late friend.

First of all, William Shatner may not have played Captain Kirk opposite Auberjonois’ Odo but the pair were still firm friends off-camera and The Original Series legend took to Twitter to say he would always cherish the “wonderful friendship” they shared.

I have just heard about the death of my friend and fellow actor @reneauberjonois. To sum up his life in a tweet is nearly impossible.

The Star Trek community has gathered online to mourn Rene Auberjonois, one of the series most-beloved characters in his role as the shape-shifting constable Odo on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

William Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek and in its film series, tweeted out his condolences.

“I have just heard about the death of my friend and fellow actor @reneauberjonois. To sum up his life in a tweet is nearly impossible. To Judith, Tessa & Remy I send you my love & strength. I will keep you in my thoughts and remember a wonderful friendship with René.”

We’ll add more reflections as they come in.

Star Trek Actors Pay Tribute To Deep Space Nine’s Aron Eisenberg

Today we learned the sad news that Aron Eisenberg has passed away at the age of 50. The actor was a beloved part of the Star Trek family for his role as Nog on Deep Space Nine. A recurring character appearing in 40 episodes, Nog was the first Ferengi to join Starfleet, and he wasn’t just popular with fans, either. Following his death, Star Trek stars from various different series have paid their respect to Eisenberg on social media.

Fans most recently got to see Eisenberg in the Ds9 documentary What We Left Behind, in which his passion for Trek was made clear. It was the documentary’s Twitter page that helped get the news out of the actor’s untimely passing as well, with the following Tweet:

We’re heartbroken to share news of the loss of one of our family. Aron Eisenberg was an enormous positive presence in any situation.

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Deep Space Nine Review: An Amazing Documentary
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was the fourth television series in the Star Trek franchise. It ran for seven seasons and a hundred and seventy-six episodes in syndication. The finale, "What You Leave Behind", aired on June 2nd, 1999. DS9 was markedly different from Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation. The show setting was a recovered enemy space station near the planet Bajor. A grieving Starfleet commander, Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks), assigned to help the Bajorans recover from a devastating occupation; discovers a wormhole to a distant region of the galaxy, the Gamma Quadrant. What followed was a thrilling, slow-burn escalation to the epic, Dominion War; a conflict against powerful Gamma Quadrant adversaries that threatened the United Federation of Planets.

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Deep Space Nine is a wonderful retrospective and coda to the beloved series. The documentary is produced and directed by Ira Steven Behr,

Second Opinion – What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (2018)

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, 2018.

Directed by Ira Steven Behr and David Zappone.

Featuring Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Alexander Siddig, Terry Farrell, Michael Dorn, Colm Meaney, Cirroc Lofton, and Armin Shimerman.

It’s not uncommon for Trekkie fans to argue over which Star Trek series is the best. Most of the conversations I’ve been privy to generally compare the original Star Trek with William Shatner and Next Generation with Patrick Stewart as their favorites. Now, with What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary shedding light behind the scenes with the actors and writers, it’s fair to say Deep Space Nine deserves its own recognition for being as innovative, original, trendsetting and revolutionary as any other Star Trek series. However, DS9 oftentimes gets lost in the mix of other Star Trek voyages and is often treated

Movie Review – What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (2018)

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, 2018

Directed by Ira Steven Behr and David Zappone

Featuring Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Alexander Siddig, Terry Farrell, Michael Dorn, Colm Meaney, Cirroc Lofton, and Armin Shimerman

Deep Space Nine is considered the “dark Star Trek.” Ask most any Trek fan and you’ll receive a similar summary of the series. This reputation is not unearned, but it is incomplete. DS9 is not a bleak show. It is not a cynical show. It’s as idealistic and humanistic as any previous entry, if not more so. It also presents something that the other shows in the franchise don’t quite have in this kind of abundance: heart. The show is dark, but it earns its darkness by contrast. The depth of character and their aspirations allow you to really feel the depths of despair that they sometimes find themselves in.

‘Star Trek’ Doc: Shout! Acquires ‘What We Left Behind’

‘Star Trek’ Doc: Shout! Acquires ‘What We Left Behind’
Shout! Studios has just acquired worldwide rights to the new Star Trek feature documentary What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Shout! plans to release it across multiple platforms including theatrical by year’s end.

The in-depth retrospective approaches the edgy Deep Space Nine as the most-misunderstood of the franchises that have flown under the banner of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek brand. When it premiered in January 1993 as a spinoff of Star Trek: The Next Generation, many devoted Trek fans thought the show flouted Roddenberry’s overarching vision of humanity’s noble and united future in the age of interstellar exploration.

The syndicated Deep Space Nine (created by Rick Berman and Michael Piller) eventually won fans over and endured for 176 episodes over seven seasons with its chronicle of a space station that is (not unlike Casablanca in the classic film) a place of intrigue,

Dozens Of ‘Star Trek’ Actors Converge For Snoop Dogg’s Parody Pic ‘Unbelievable’ – Watch The Trailer

It’s a Trekkie delight. No idea why so many Star Trek actors thought this was a great idea, but they did.

Snoop Dogg executive produced the film from writer-director Steven Fawcette that also stars Nichelle Nichols (who also co-produced), Angelique Fawcette (also a producer), Michael Madsen and Robert Davi.

Rollback Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 1

“In every generation, there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the Vampires, the Demons, and the Forces of Darkness. She is the Slayer.”

There must be about a million films, stories and TV related content that contains one particular scene. A vulnerable young woman, running for her life, terrified of whomever, or whatever, is pursuing her. She is utterly helpless to prevent her oncoming, horrible death – and most of the time is scantly clad. The scenario ends one of two ways – she either meets a terrible fate, or ends up getting saved by a dashing, Harrison Ford look alike male hero. Rinse, lather, repeat.

It once looked like that would be all we’d get from female characters in horror related productions. That was, until, a young writer came along named Joss Whedon, who decided that enough was enough. He had an idea of a young woman

Mike Gold: Patton Oswalt Really Is Everywhere!

  • Comicmix
Patton Oswalt is ubiquitous.

The comedian / actor / writer / producer has a list of credits longer than Reed Richards’ arm, and if I mention just some of the shows he’s been in (or voiced) that I enjoyed, you’ll understand why I think he’s tapped into my cable feed. But, in the interest of full disclosure, this personal list includes Justified, Agents of Shield, Community, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Futurama, Burn Notice, Veep, Archer, and Static Shock. He’s co-starring in the newly revived Mystery Science Theater 3000 playing the latest newest member of the Forrester family. And he steals the spotlight in Foil, one of Weird Al Yankovic’s best videos.

If somebody semi-knowledgeable told me Oswalt is one of the guys in the Daleks cans, I’d probably believe ‘em.

He’s made no secret of his being a comic book fan – he pitched a “death of Superman” story

Event Review – Destination Star Trek: Europe 2016

Tony Black reports from Destination Star Trek: Europe 2016…

Star Trek @ 50. Why hasn’t more of a fuss been made? That’s been on many Trekkie thoughts over the course of this year. Sure, Star Trek Beyond hit cinemas and Star Trek: Discovery is about to start filming, but celebrations of the landmark birthday for, arguably, the most iconic television series in history have been surprisingly scant. Hailing Destination: Star Trek Europe, which lowered its shields for the third time since 2012 for a massive, three-day celebration of all things Star Trek at the National Exhibition Centre outside Birmingham – and I was lucky enough to snaffle a press pass & beam my way onto the bridge.

Sadly, I wasn’t quite lucky enough to be there from the press-exclusive outset due to the pesky job I have to maintain, but I did have a few Section 31 agents on the ground who I
