Captain Worf TV series

http://screenrant.com/star-trek-capt...-michael-dorn/

“Interestingly enough it has gotten traction. I was very surprised, I was on a movie not too long ago, where one of the producers was basically lobbying to be part of it. He was like “Michael, I’d love to write it, if you haven’t.” So at this point, my agents and my manager are looking at all the avenues and trying to figure out which is the best one. My agent and manager have been in the business for awhile, so they’re very savvy about where to start and how to get it going. Like I said, in this business you never know and I’ve been through pitching things and I never want to do that again [laughs]. It’s pretty brutal, but definitely I think once again, if Paramount or CBS or anybody thinks this is a viable thing, they’ll jump on it.”
So if this show ever becomes a reality, how will the book line retcon this if it takes place while the books have Worf as 2nd in command of the Enterprise>

Re: Captain Worf TV series

I'm just one of those fans who doesn't think everything has to line up. I would love to see a Worf TV series, and I don't care if they acknowledge it in the books. It's all fiction. I want interesting characters and a good story. I'm OK with the Prime universe, JJ- Universe and the Shatner-verse etc.

Year old "news" that never has had any traction. I don't think the editors need worry.

We'll deal with this the same way we dealt with the "Captain Sulu" TV series.

Well if you recall how the TNG era TV series and movies more or less moved in real-time from 1987 to 2002 as 2364 to 2379, right now would be roughly 2391 in the TNG era. Since the novelverse is in 2385 as of The Fall, it would take a lot of planning, but in theory the TV series could simply be several years ahead and in a different scenario of Worf's life but still acknowledge the novels.

Of course, since this series likely won't ever happen, I don't see a need to worry about it.

I don't see this series happening. If they wouldn't got for series by even bigger names, then I don't see them going for Michael Dorn's.

I'd love to give either a chance.

If Captain Worf or some other TNG/DS9/VOY continuation came along, it would nuke the novelverse just like Star Wars VII is doing to the SW Expanded Universe and to a lesser extent, Enterprise did to a myriad bunch of pre-TOS novel continuities.

EDIT: I thought this all sounded oddly familiar

Re: Captain Worf TV series

Honestly, this is just an occupational hazard of publishing tie-in novels. Newer movies and TV episodes or comic books come along that render older novels apocryphal. It happens.

That's because you guys sell yourself short. There are also instances when the avid readers start burning villages, rape the cattle and slaughter the women when a TV show dares to depart from the books.

Time to turn the tie-in literature on its head. So that they actually want to make films based on your novels, not want you to write novels based on their films. Don't be just that tie in author. Be the Tolkien and King and Grisham and Clancy and Martin and Rowling of Trek tie ins! Revolt!

The thing is, Worf has always been more popular than Sulu.
