Overview

Nog was born to Rom and Prinadora on Ferenginar in 2353. Later, he moved with his father to Deep Space Nine and worked at his uncle Quark's bar. During this time, Nog was very mischievous, and a slight delinquent. With new best friend Jake Sisko, he is, though reluctantly, one of the first students in Keiko O'Brien's school. When Rom, under pressure from Quark and Grand Nagus Zek, pulls Nog out of school, Jake tutors him behind Rom's back ("The Nagus").

In 2374, Nog is sent on a diplomatic mission to Ferenginar with Jake, who is along as a civilian press correspondent. They are rescued by the USS Valiant after their runabout is destroyed by the Dominion. Onboard the Valiant, Jake and Nog discover that the vessel, including all senior officers, is composed entirely of an elite group of Starfleet cadets, called Red Squad. Nog becomes enamored at the thought of working with such a group, and the young Captain soon gives Nog a temporary field promotion and officer position on the ship. An arrogant, overly zealous crew, they embark on a poorly-planned mission to seek out and destroy a very substantial Dominion supply ship... based solely on an untested scientific theory which indicates a specific particle emission could be used to cripple the Dominion ship's hull structure. Jake objects strongly to the recklessness of the endeavor, but is blatantly ignored and ridiculed by everyone, including Nog. Eventually, the Valiant encounters the Dominion ship, and the young crew become visibly shaken when they see how huge this particular enemy ship is, from the viewscreen. They make the first offensive strike on the enemy anyway, but quickly discover to their horror that the theory is flawed. The particle beam has no effect, and the Dominion ship retaliates, resulting in the total destruction of the USS Valiant. Finding an escape-pod, Nog, Jake, and a female cadet whom Jake befriended earlier are the only survivors ("Valiant").

Nog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (333 words)
Nog was born to Rom and Prinadora on Ferenginar in 2353.
Recognising this fact, Nog resolved to go into a career where he could make something of himself in another fashion, and in 2371 he went through the Ferengi coming of age rite and purchased an apprenticeship with Captain Benjamin Sisko in order to attend Starfleet Academy, becoming the first Ferengi in Starfleet.
Nog's leg was replaced with a bionic one, and Nog chose Vic Fontaine's club in the holodeck as the place to rest during recovery.
DS9 Encyclopedia & Lexicon - Recurring Characters: Nog (647 words)
Nog had a far from spotless record; in fact, in "Emissary", he was caught fleeing after looting the assay office, and was used by Sisko to flmail Quark into staying on the station.
Nog, who had been field-promoted to Ensign, returned to the station again (in "Sacrifice of Angels"), and later that year was one of the Ferengi team that Quark put together to rescue Ishka ("The Magnificent Ferengi").
Nog was caught up in it all when Watters made him chief engineer and a Lt. Commander; however, after all the other officers were killed, he chose to escape with Jake and Chief Collins.
