Re: Well, gee, what do you know?! Worf was right!

I can't think of any examples off-hand, but indeed, that was an important role for the Worf character: in his capacity as Tactical Officer, he had to always have in mind the security of the Ship and its crew more than anyone else, including the Captain: as such, Worf's role in those scenes was to remind us that, yes, the characters know things can go wrong; they've thought of those possibilities, but ultimately decided to extend trust, to approach matters with a softer touch.

In those instances, sometimes Worf was overcautious or overbellicious but sometimes Picard/the rest of the crew was/were undercautious or too na´ve.
