Undiscovered Country is from 1991. So Dorn being in the movie was a deliberate choice.

That would've been season 3 of TNG when they started the arc about Worf's father being a traitor so a tieback to his family would make sense

I think the rumors about his own show was like, Michael Dorn said he thought it was be a good idea and somebody put it in an article.

It's true Worf does have a way of having his enemies die. And there's that part in DS9 where he beats the Gem'Hadar by continuously being beaten up until the Gem'Hadar gets so bored with hurting him he quits.
It seems it´s a bit more then that. Apperantly they actually had a pilot script written.

A Klingon ship? I.. just can't see a series being carried by that. Even the few Klingon ship episodes on TNG and DS9 were hit and miss... more often miss.

Re: Worf is a beast

KRAD's IKS Gorkon series was pretty good but I think the audience for watching a ship filled with Klingons with all their backstabbing and hierarchy and alpha throwdowns would be.. limited. It would wear thin real quick.

Same thing sorta happened to Tim Russ. He was an extra in the movies, had a minor role in a TNG episode before getting the Voyager gig.
He was also a runner-up for Geordi.
I heard about that. I can't see it, personally. Russ is not affable enough to be Laforge as we've come to know him

Sounds like Game of Thrones to me.

Michael Dorn was one of the luckiest actors ever in Star Trek, to be in the franchise as long as he was. I'm sure he knows it too.
Agreed. Not bad, especially given he was the last character to be cast for TNG, and was in fact not a part of the original TNG format outline at all. I've even heard stories that he was originally only conceived as maybe being a semi-regular character at best, but that Dorn's performance impressed everybody so much that they immediately bumped him up to regular character status.

What I always wanted to see was Worf kicking ass in a TNG film in a well-prepared and choreographed modern day fight scene. Nemesis would have been the opportunity for that.

11 seasons and 4 movies. Eat your heart out Kirk.
5 movies, including Star Trek VI.
Yep. And people wonder why Kirk hated the Klingons so much in Star Trek VI.

That would have been cool. Worf goes all Jason Bourne on some hapless Reman. I would have liked that better than Riker getting revenge on the Viceroy for what he did to Troi.

The Riker/Reman scene was so poorly done and so cheesy.
