Star Trek: Captain Worf in the works

Linky

As much as I love Worf, I'm mixed about this...

Re: Star Trek: Captain Worf in the works

I don't think 'in the works' is entirely accurate. It seems to me that at most Dorn is putting together a proposal for a series. It doesn't actually say that Paramount or CBS has been in contact with him.

I very much doubt it would happen, I'll believe it when I see it.

Cant see this making the small screen, perhaps there could be a bit done with web-isodes or something, but cant see it being a long term thing.

Sort of like the idea, but it'd be interesting to see what they come up with.

For now only seems to be an idea thrown around, no ones picked it up yet.

I'm half expecting Micheal Dorn to be announced as the captain of Admiral Chekov's handpicked crew in Star Trek: Renegades

Re: Star Trek: Captain Worf in the works

Isn't this like the third thread topic we've had about this? And AFAIK, the information hasn't changed: Dorn is writing something that he hopes CBS and Paramount will be interested in (but probably won't). Well, isn't everybody writing something like that?

Wake me up when Les Moonves announces he loves the idea and it will be on CBS's schedule for the 2013-14 season.

If it works, good for him, but as much as I love Worf I can't see him playing a series lead.

Re: Star Trek: Captain Worf in the works

Would love to see it, but I fear it will be a flash-in-the-pan and never see the light of day, much like NuBSG Blood & Chrome and a new TOS Battlestar effort. This almost sounds like a Captain Sulu Redux. Not that I would have minded that either, but I just don't think the suits are at all interested in revisiting the prime universe ever again.

Re: Star Trek: Captain Worf in the works

Should this happen, I hope it isn't titled Captain Worf.

I'm of the opinion that the future TV series and the film series should be separated by time, space, or continuity so they don't step on each other's toes. VOY was separated by space from the TNG movies and ENT was separated by time.

The TNG movies only overlapped with DS9. The overlap made it seem strange that the Enterprise wasn't in the middle of fighting the Dominion in Insurrection. Would that be the time for Data to help obseve the Baku or to send a Sovereign class starship instead of another out to make protectorates of a newly FTL society? The overlap also makes me wonder why the Borg didn't figure more prominently in DS9. In Insurrection it's stated that the Federation has taken massive losses to the Borg and the Dominion and the Borg are again mentioned later on. It makes it seem like the Borg are a lot more prominent in the Alpha Quadrant than DS9 made it look like. Could the Federation and Starfleet still be suffering from the Borg Invasion two years after First Contact? It's possible but you'd never know it from watching DS9. Over there, its all about the losses Starfleet is taking because of the Dominion.

So, anyway, I don't think the movies should occupy the same time, space, and continuity as the series. At least one of those three things should be different. It gives more freedom to both when they don't have to share the same field.

Yeah. Even though it doesn't change what I said above, I agree.

Recasting the character of Worf with a new actor would be a must. Many of us saw Dorn in a resent car commercial and he physically can't pull off being a mighty Klingon warrior at this point in his life.

Now Dorn in a reoccurring role, a admiral or something like that, would be great.

Re: Star Trek: Captain Worf in the works

Maybe they could title it either Star Trek: Michael Dorn Needs Money or Star Trek: Can't Let Go of Past Success?

Re: Star Trek: Captain Worf in the works

The lead in any Star Trek series intended for a mainstream audience has to be human. The only way I could see a series working with Worf as captain is if he isn't the lead. Something like 'Lower Decks', with Worf maybe even only as a recurring character.

Bingo, and it also reminds me of the undeveloped Star Trek series that would have been centered around Spock on Vulcan.

Initial reappearances

Vulcan was intended to serve as the primary location of an ultimately undeveloped Star Trek series that would have been centered around Spock and was, shortly after the cancellation of the original Star Trek series, proposed to Gene Roddenberry by Paramount. (The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, p. 18)

Worf fucking sucks, his character arc was wrapped up well in DS9.
