Star Trek actress Stephanie Niznik has died aged just 52-year-old.

The star reportedly died unexpectedly on June 23 in Encino, California, according to Variety.

Stephanie Niznik is survived by her mother, brother and stepfather, and her dogs Nucleus and Jake.

Niznik also participated in volunteering and was engaged in the Four Winds Heart-centric Healing organization for kids and animal rescue. She followed a masters degree at Cal Arts and then started to perform in shows like Murder Son and Vanishing Son.

Originally in Bangor, Maine, Niznik meant to work as a geneticist before graduating in theater and Russian from the Duke University.

Nina was played by Niznik on the beloved family drama, the Browns' brash neighbor, who at times throughout the series was romantically involved with Andy Brown (Williams). She returned to the TV Critics Association's summer press tour in 2017 for the 15th-anniversary panel. She also had a recurring role on "Life is Wild" and guested on "Lost", "NCIS" and "CSI: Miami".

She played Maggie Bryce in The Sentinel (1996), Rose in Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman (1997), Debra Carbol in Sliders (1997), Lt. "Hobo" Green in JAG (1997), Dr. Roget in the 1998 TV film Mr. Murder, and Kelly Short in the TV film Emma's Wish (1998).

Friends from her time at Duke have paid heartbreaking tributes to the star, describing her as "so kind".

Michael Ausiello also shared the incident on Twitter. Fans were shocked to receive such devastating news, and through social media, they expressed their condolences. And most importantly why this news cam out so late?
