    Damn today really sucks. Not just Caroll Spinney and Marina Sirtis' husband (Michael Lamper), but also our beloved constable.

    Odo was always one of my favorite characters, not just on Deep Space Nine, but all of Star Trek. He will be dearly missed. :(

    I watched "The Begotten" in tribute and now I can't stop crying. :wah:

    So sad to hear this. I met him in 2010 in Vegas, and he couldn't have been nicer. My prayers are with his family.

    My love for you was the most a stranger could ever feel toward a stranger; strong, hardy, but faraway. Your love for us all made my love for you barely a drop in the river; passionate, proactive, and near and dear to our every heart.

    Godspeed, Rene. I’m watching “His Way” in honor of yours.

    So glad they got the DS9 retrespective documentary done a couple of years ago! If they didn't have Auberjonois and Eisenberg's input it would not have been nearly as good.

    Truly tragic news. A man who I had a great deal of respect and admiration for, in his many different roles. No matter how small he gave it his all. He will be missed.

    'His Way' is probably my favorite Odo episode. He finally got the nerve to ask Kira on a date. With a little help from Vic Fontaine and a little luck, the two finally got together and the rest is history. One of the 'feel good' DS9 episodes.

    Another was the episode where Vic cheered up Nog who just lost his leg in the battle, which I rewatched when Aron passed on a few months back. Guess I'll need to rewatch 'His Way' in Rene's memory soon too :confused::confused:

    My favorite Odo/Kira scene from the finale, "What You Leave Behind." Seems fitting:

    I am sadden to hear this news. Besides DS9 and ENT, he also appeared in The Undiscovered Country. Trekdom will certainly mourn his passing. May he find peace on the other side.
