Re: Captain Worf?

That article is from more than a year ago. I'd say it isn't going to happen.

Re: Captain Worf?

A Captain Worf series has about as much chance being greenlit as Takei's Captain Sulu series had. None.

Eleven TV seasons and four feature films wasn't enough development?

Yeah, this is old news. If it was going to happen it would be here.

I'm all for a late 24th/early 25th century series in the primeline but yeah, I don't think Worf is the guy to do it.

One of my friend's on Facebook posted it earlier and I thought it was recent news. I'm not against the idea but I don't see it being greenlit.

Re: Captain Worf?

I've said it before and I'll say it again: why on Earth would CBS green-light a post-Nemesis, prime universe series, when the Abrams films are way more popular and filled with sets, props, costumes, CGI ships, etc. that could all be reused for a new nuTrek series?

Two things:

1. I don't believe live-action is ever going back to the Prime timeline, it doesn't make any sense to do so.

2. The Abramsverse sets would be owned by either Paramount or Bad Robot (depending on their agreement). If/when CBS decides to do a new Trek series, they would either have to start from scratch or rent the sets (if they still exist) when they start up.

Heck, now that you mention the JJverse sets, makes you wonder if they didn't "refit" the JJprise simply to possibly justify new sets for the next movie if the current ones get cleared out in the next three-four years.

Re: Captain Worf?

How would a captain Worf show even work seeing as Worf would avoid the obiously dangerous stuff that would try to kill them all.

Ah, but we saw all the interiors at the end of Into Darkness, and they hadn't changed at all.

...not that that's ever stopped Trek before (See: Complete and unexplained change at the end of IV/start of V)



On topic, this Worf series sounds just like Star Trek: Renegades, but with a different captain (who, as a descendant of Khan, would be able to clean the deck with Worf's face)

Why?

If Khan's children started mating with regular folks, after fifteen generations you'd think the superior abilities would have been bred-out.

Re: Captain Worf?

I thought Worf's chances of getting a command of his own were in serious jeopardy after DS9's "Change of Heart".

"Change of Heart" happened over half-way through S6, well into the DW. Add to that his actions in "Rules of Engagement" and a few other questionable decisions, over the years and I'd say that he'd be pretty low in the pile of officers up for command.

Besides, Worf has had his day. There isn't much else to really explore with the character, and any Worf series would once again be filled with many episodes on Klingon honour :yawn:
