Yeah Dorn did put on weight as TNG progressed, and you really noticed it on DS9. But it didn't detract from his Klingon appearance...
True, not a totally negative impact on the Klingon persona, but it was REALLY noticable when he played Willie Mays in "Far Beyond The Stars."

However, even at his worst, he never packed on the pounds like Frakes. Holy smoke!
haha...that's what makes TATV least convincing as a TNG era episode, in my opinion!

At least with Worf and Riker they were aging so weight gain made sense. Whereas with Data Spiner's weight gain (even if it was loss than others) really takes away from your suspension of disbelief.
