How did the cast feel when Worf was made a regular?

Can't say I've ever read any scuttlebutt on that, but I didn't get much into the behinds the scene stuff on DS9.

I've never read any complaints, though I suspect some of them were worried about their screen time. At least nobody got fired for it, unlike TNG and VOY.

Excited when I heard about it, bored when I saw it in action.

Aww. really? I'm watching "The Ship" right now, and the inclusion of an actual soldier does wonders for the ep.

Unlike Barbie of Borg, Worf didn't take attention away from the characters, which is to be applauded.

Re: How did the cast feel when Worf was made a regular?

I can't speak for the DS9 cast and I haven't read anything about it. But DS9 had a very large supporting cast of recurring characters, in many ways equal to the main cast. I can't imagine the addition of Worf would be any more unsettling than the additions of Garak or Brunt or Damar or Eddington or Bareil or Nog or Shakaar or Rom or Leeta or Dukat or Yates or...

Re: How did the cast feel when Worf was made a regular?

I'm guessing the cast felt like manure. The crew was certainly elated.

Re: How did the cast feel when Worf was made a regular?

In the DS9 companion a few members of the cast said they didn't know Michael Dorn was joining the show until they returned from summer break! Nana Visitor stated she was concerned that it would take away from screen time but that ultimately she thought it was a great idea and that she loves Dorn and that he brought a certain sense of fun to the set that hadn't been there before.

Yes, and René Auberjonois didn't know until he heard it from a fan at a convention!

Re: How did the cast feel when Worf was made a regular?

I would imagined Kira's character was the most directly threatened by Worf, though in reality Dax ended up demoted from being the resident Klingon. I don't think she ever had her own storyline after Rejoined.

I'm glad it ended up being this way, I bet the cast was too.

You know, you're right. I never really considered it from quite that point of view, but, while it probably seemed like Kira ran the most risk of being adversely affected by Worf's arrival, she ended up with some of the strongest material in the later seasons.

It was really Jadzia who suffered most because she became somewhat of an accessory to Worf.

To be fair, Jadzia wasn't really all that compelling as a standalone character. Sure, she had a few episodes where she shined, but she was mostly "royal smart person," "Sisko's old friend/mentor," and "person who flirts with everything that's sapient" before Worf rolled around. Becoming Worf's accessory isn't the worst thing in the world.
