Sad news tonight as it has been announced that René Auberjonois the actor best known for Chief Constable Odo a master of sarcasm on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and for his Emmy-nominated work on the sitcom Benson, has died aged 79.
Too many people dream of places they’ll never go, wish for things they’ll never have, instead of paying adequate attention to their real lives.
It has been my observation that one of the prices of giving people freedom of choice… is that sometimes, they make the wrong choice.
Too many compromises. You want to watch the karo-net tournament; she wants to listen to music, so you compromise – you listen to music. You like Earth Jazz; she prefers Klingon Opera so you compromise – you listen to Klingon Opera. So here you were ready to have a nice night watching the karo-net match and you wind up spending an agonizing evening listening to Klingon Opera.
The law? Commander, laws change, depending on who’s making them – Cardassians one day, Federation the next. But justice is justice.
It is with great heartache and loss I share with you the passing of dear,dear Rene Auberjonois.His last message to me was entitled "Don't forget…" I know that I,Kitty,and all that knew him will never forget.The world seems noticeably emptier now. I loved him.

This is a terrible loss. Star Trek fans knew him as Odo from Deep Space Nine. We knew him as René. He was a wonderful, caring, and intelligent man. He shall be missed. When I look out to the stars, I shall think of you, friend. https://t.co/IE2gtivRcg

My first ever tv job was an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise where #ReneAuberjonois played my father. I had come from theatre & had never stepped foot on a soundstage before. He could not have been more warm & welcoming.💔I learned so much from watching him.💔 #RIPReneAuberjonois pic.twitter.com/wpo3bXLOeu
