Michael Dorn Says Worf Series Would ‘Fit So Well’ Into Current Star Trek Universe
Remember that “Worf Chronicles” TNG spin-off idea that Michael Dorn was pitching a few years ago? Well, he still has hope for it within the current landscape of the Star Trek Universe.
Michael Dorn, the actor best known for his role as Worf (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and his own grandfather in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) gave an update on his proposed spin-off series’ progress, during an appearance at Keystone Comic Con in Philadelphia.
Back in August 2012, TrekNews.net discussed Dorn’s pitch with him in an exclusive interview with details on what the show would potentially be about. A path to getting the show green-lit remains complicated, but not for lack of trying on Dorn’s part.
We’ll see sounds about right at least at the time of the writing of this article. There is a heavy Klingon presence on Star Trek: Discovery, which takes place almost a century prior to TNG. Not only are there distinct differences in the way that series’ Klingons look, liberties and expansions within the mythology complicate things for Worf’s future. However, with the launch of Star Trek: Picard early next year, the future is at least a little more possible for the son of Mogh.
Marina Sirtis, Dorn’s TNG co-star, who was also at Keystone Comic Con, weighed in on the pilot script.
With such strong endorsements and the continued growth of CBS All Access, a Worf spin-off might be a risk worth taking.
