And how is Madden not an even more uninspired choice? Just another Anglo-Saxon human male, with no specific personality of any kind? Worf, by contrast, has many years of backstory from two different series, plus a recent history as an ambassador, which is unusual in a Starfleet first officer. So there's a ton of story potential to build on, and a fair amount of novelty in the choice.
