That article is from more than a year ago. I'd say it isn't going to happen.
Not only that, it's pretty easy to glean from the article that Dorn was contacted by individuals about doing this—just not individuals representing either CBS or Paramount. If that's being "in talks" about doing something, then I'm in talks about being the next director of Star Wars VII, should Abrams bow out.

Re: Captain Worf?

From what we have gathered Worf has been begging for years and they keep telling him no.

Pretty much. We're just replaying the Captain Sulu non-sense from the late-90's.

Sulu would've been more interesting... Worf, I like the character but over eleven seasons, he's pretty much done what he's going to.

Re: Captain Worf?

They could make an awesome Worf-centered story that explored his duties as Martok's Federation Ambassador, have him in some cool political stories, think less sci-fi and more West Wing or Law & Order even... except within Klingon society, so honor killings, legal house, exploration of the corruption of the High Council and their workings in a post-Romulus galaxy... could be frakkin' GOOD...

That would be amazing if it could happen, they could explore worfs character in more depth, would not know how many series it could last for, plus would we have cameos of next gen, deep space nine crew,plenty of possible stuff

It would be a different direction, but that COULD be a very well-done show.

I really have no interest in seeing Michael Dorn again. I have more interest in seeing Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto again.

Re: Captain Worf?

Man, I think it's a great idea. I bet you could land appearances by a ton of people like those shows did, as Klingons! Edward James Almos, Christopher Meloni, James Spader... imagine...

All I'm imagining is my boredom as we've already been subjected to 18+ seasons of Klingon non-sense.

Re: Captain Worf?

The majority of "Klingon episodes" could be erased from existence, and I'd never care, except on some level about how it's good to preserve media for posterity. Only a minority of those episodes were any good to begin with. Most of those were in TNG, and easily half of TNG's Klingon episodes were crap.

Re: Captain Worf?

The problem with anything based on a particular alien race is that not everyone likes said race or gets easily bored with them.

I just think the Klingons were badly overexposed during the Berman years. It was fun to glimpse them in the Abramsverse but I'm one that really isn't going to be excited if the next movie features them.

The reason is easy enough to understand. Once you have a good thing going (which they generally did at first, I think), it's a great temptation to keep going back to that well.
