Worfs voice in Nemesis

Hey all,

I was recently watching all the TNG movies back to back and in Nemesis Worfs voice seems to be pitched down. It's something Ive never noticed in the 1000 times Ive watched all the TNG movies. Its really jarring. Did Michael Dorn just make Worf's voice deeper or was it something in post?

Artificially pitched down in post production because Stuart Baird thought that with 11 seasons of Worf appearances, he didn't seem "alien" enough.

I always hated Worf's voice in NEM. You can hear some of his unaltered dialogue in the trailer, the difference is jarring.

I've noticed it and dismissed it as another Klingon upgrade.

Obviously it points to the NEM Worf being an imposter and the real
Worf is still on the Klingon homeworld hunting with Martok like he should be

Everyone in NEM was either a clone or a doppelganger!

Re: Worfs voice in Nemesis

Luckily the script conspired to give Worf almost no dialogue so the new voice wouldn't stand out.

EDIT: In fairness the Remans (and possibly the Romulans?) are voice pitched as well, so it seems to have been a general alien thing rather than just picking on Worf.

Still daft though.

Voice pitching isn't a bad idea in of itself, but it does seem an unnecessary slight to Dorn/the fans that general audiences wouldn't even notice.

I think it's more an insult to Dorn than a slight, as if his performance somehow wasn't good enough, even though he'd been playing the character in television and film since 1987.

Yep. I thought it sounded cool (as did the similarly deepened voice of Ron Pearlman's Reman Viceroy)
