The real problem there is, Worf is associated with old pre-Abrams Trek, the stuff that flopped, and CBS will want to align itself with the movies and recent success.
Actually pre-Abrams Trek didn't flopped. It was on television for 18 years, fans just got bored of the same routine. And Enterprise was doom to be cancel, even before it even air.

Yes, but, that's reality, which is a completely different universe, then a bean counter looking back now at numbers on a Spreadsheet and making assumptions

Worf having a sex change is reasonable development?
Let me play Sigmund Freud and ask, what is this obsession with sex? I watch the show for science fiction, not for sex, what gives?
It was a joke, inspired by a typo.

But it's probably worth noting that the very first episode of STAR TREK, "The Cage," is all about aliens trying to trick a captured human into mating with a female specimen. And when that doesn't work, they offer him a choice of females!

Sex and Star Trek go waaaay back . . .

Yep, its all about, what have you done for me lately, baby? To the bean coutner mentality, Star Trek was old and tired and nobody wanted to watch it anymore until JJ Abrams came along and made it relevant and popular again.

And the bean counters hold veto power over any new series. Whether their mndset is valid or fair is beside the point. It must be taken into consideration in any realistic appraisal of the franchise's future. Even if its nothing more than Abrams giving his PR blessing to a new series and just stepping aside because he's not interested n being involved.

I'd love to see a Captain Worf TV/DVD-movie. Depending upon how it would be, I wouldn't even mind a Worf series.

That having been said, Captain Worf could be the new Captain Sulu. Though, if the pattern holds, Michael Dorn could have a huge social media following on Facebook or its equivalent in 2030.

It look like a new Star Trek series is being work on. Actually two Star Trek series are being work on. This one: http://sciencefiction.com/2012/02/06...han-you-think/ and the one Micheal Dorn is working on, call Star Trek: Captain Worf.
http://screenrant.com/star-trek-capt...-michael-dorn/

If either one of those happens I'd be happy just because I get to see new Star Trek series on my tv. At least until I saw it

Not holding my breath but I'd particularly like to see the Worf one as he's one of my personal favourites character wise.

I think its ok to have a starship commanded by Worf, but I don't think that show should be called "Captain Worf" it shouldn't be all about him, unless he is a fighter pilot.

Also the show would need something else besides just having a Klingon as Captain, there needs to be some concept like Voyager had one and Deep Space Nine, it can't be just about who commands the ship.
