Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Nog1
Species : Ferengi
Associated with : Deep Space Nine

Son of Rom, Nog spent his early years on Ferenginar before moving to Deep Space Nine with his father.1 He became a petty thief2, but his friendship with Jake Sisko was a positive influence on him. When Nog's father forbade him from attending school, Jake taught him to read.3 Nog was desperate not to end up a failure like his father, and after undergoing the Ferengi Attainment Ceremony he asked Commander Sisko to support his enrolment into Starfleet.4 Sisko did so, and Nog began to study the Academy Preparatory Program despite the objections of his uncle Quark.5 In 2372 Nog sold his possessions and went to Earth with Quark and Rom. Unfortunately their shuttle underwent a temporal accident, throwing it into the year 1947 and causing it to crash-land at Roswell, New Mexico.6 The landing of three Ferengi caused considerable disruption in the area, but local authorities covered the story up by claiming that a weather balloon had crashed and eventually they were able to escape and return to their own time.6

Nog returned to Deep Space Nine for field study in 2373.7 He was awarded a battlefield promotion to Ensign during the war8, during which he frequently served aboard the Defiant.2 He briefly served as Chief Engineer aboard the Defiant class USS Valiant due to the great shortage of regular crewmembers aboard that vessel.9 Later on he became a helm officer aboard the Defiant itself, gaining much combat experience in the last stages of the war.2

When Defiant crewmembers helped to support a Federation force at a captured Dominion relay station on AR-558 Nog acted as a scout, his superb Ferengi hearing a useful tool in that role. Unfortunately he was shot by a Jem'Hadar weapon and had to have his leg amputated.10 Nog struggled with the trauma he had undergone, but thanks to advice from the hologram Vic Fontaine he managed to come to terms with his injuries and return to active duty.11

Nog performed so well during the final battles of the war that Captain Sisko ordered him promoted to Lieutenant as one of his final actions before joining the prophets in the Bajoran wormhole.12
