    Sad news indeed. He fit the role of Odo perfectly. Curmudgeonly but with his heart in the right place.

    From one of his earliest lines in "Emissary" when he said of Sisko "At first I didn't think I was going to like him" to Quark. A great character

    Very sad news. A fine actor and one of the franchise’s most likable characters.

    RIP Mr. Auberjonois.

    One of the best actors to ever walk onto a Trek set.

    Instantly recognisable and yet so able to immerse himself in a role.
    Condolences to his family.

    Happy he lived a full life but so sad to see him go. It's never going to feel the same watching DS9 now.

    Very sad news. I got to meet him last year on the Star Trek cruise; we shared an elevator after he had just participated in an evening show. He was kind and humble, and even though I'd not seen much of DS9, he ended up being my favorite cast member that I met on the cruise.

    Indeed. Every small part he stood out. He even played a villain in a film that just stood out, because there was a hint of gold inside that villain performance.

    My favorite role, if I could pick one, was him as Mr. House from the video game New Vegas. Another interesting role with such a gravitas to it. Even in a video game appearance Rene's talent shined through.

    I feel Rene would love this as a tribute to his characterisation of Odo. You watch all his interviews and he's NOT the sentimental type. Just a great actor/director.

    I am most terribly sorry to see the old wisdom 'Death Comes in Threes' proven accurate once again - it would be impossible not to miss Mr Auberjonois' excellence in any case, but coming so hard on the heels of those other Trek-related demises makes this a pill all the more bitter to swallow.

    Requiescat in Pace.

    You're not the first to tell me that I came to mind when they heard the news.

    :(

    I'm glad I got to meet him, too. I guess its fortunate - my top three favorite characters are Odo, Spock & Data, and I have met Rene, Leonard Nimoy (2009 Star Trek premiere screening) & Brent Spiner (scifi con in Plano, TX) .

    The Nog figure sucks, though. It came as an accessory for Rom, isn't possable, and I can't even get mine to stand up on its own half the time.
