Star Trek TV Series About Worf Under Consideration

Posted by Bob Muir on Aug 22, 2013 in Star Trek, Television |


In an interview about season four of Star Trek: The Next Generation on Blu-ray, Michael Dorn, famous for playing Worf on both that series and Deep Space Nine, related an interesting bit of news. It seems that CBS and Paramount may be interested in making a new Captain Worf-centric Star Trek series. Dorn says that he has spoken with a couple producers and even got to pitch the show. However, “business things got in the way in terms of [Star Trek Into Darkness] coming out and CBS/Paramount and their relationship with JJ Abrams. [Dorn doesn’t] think they wanted to step on his toes by putting a new series on, but it’s not dead yet.”

Dorn says that he’s finished the script and is waiting to be given the go-ahead from someone. Because Federation-Klingon interactions during the era of JJ Abrams’s rebooted universe are not that smooth, I’d assume this would either still be set in TNG/DS9 continuity or in the equivalent future of the new timeline. It’s an interesting notion, and I’d love to see more Star Trek on TV, but I’ll admit to never being that interested in Worf. Hell, Klingons are almost a joke for me, with all their conflicting opinions on what is honorable and what is dishonorable — you could generally make arguments either way in most circumstances!
