Wasn't one of the "Seven". Still it's possible he could cameo.
He wasn't core cast.
I guess we need a "Where's" thread.
Terry has hinted at other cameos, so you never know.
Re: Worf having white hair. Yes, it's canonical that Klingon have longer lifespans than humans yes, but who knows how their actual aging process works. Case in point, Kang looks relatively the same in Voyager's "Flashback" and DS9's "Blood Oath" despite there being an eighty year gap. The reality is, Worf is played by a human actor who ages like the rest of us. Michael Dorn grew back his Worf goatee (one of the first clues we got that he was in S3) and it was all white as Dorn is almost 70. So just deal with it! I think Worf looks bad ass with the white hair.
I've been watching a couple of the interviews with Gates and Patrick and she is really funny. You can tell she's thrilled to be back and loved her part in S3.
The real answer to "Where's O'Brien" is probably that Colm Meaney was too busy or not interested to return.
Eh. They could have given his wig a bit of dark. Koloth in DS9 did not have bone white hair and he was much older. Worf is still a young Klingon of about 75 to 90. He was raised by human parents after all. Parents who were still alive 35 years ago. So he should not be looking like the albino...
What if this Worf is from the future i.e. late 25th/early 26th century?
He gave an interview recently where he said he’d be open to a return, but it’s obviously not happening in Picard. Terry Matalas has promised that there are more cameos though…
“There are some people from ‘Star Trek’ who come back in this season who aren’t the ‘Next Gen’ [primary] cast. I mean there’s one character who is in ‘Next Gen’ who I was like… I really want THIS character to come back.
And when they did [agree to return], that was weirdly more thrilling than everything else in totality.”
And when asked if Matalas had plans to stick around and produce any more content for the Star Trek universe — after Picard signs off for good — the showrunner offered this cryptic response:
“Uhh…. uhh…. [pause] …if this was a printed interview, you’d say, ‘The showrunner smiled devilishly.’
I think, to me, this is a period of time in the ‘Star Trek’ universe I’d love to spend more time in. There’s nothing less than 30 legacy characters across ‘Deep Space Nine,’ ‘Voyager’ and ‘Next Gen’ that you’d love to check in and see — you can’t get to them all in [‘Picard’] Season 3.
We don’t get to Miles O’Brien. I’d love to get to Miles O’Brien! There are people though — I could say one name to you right now that comes back, and [you’d be] like, ‘Oh my god, I want to know what happens!’
You’re going to find out. So I would love nothing more than to stay in the 2401 year to tell more ‘Star Trek’ stories in this universe… so that’s all I will say.”
Doubtful. Hes wearing the same uniform as everyone else. I hope Dorn didnt play Worf as an old Klingon.
I highly doubt it's the latter. Meaney has always said that he loved playing O'Brien and I always got the vibe that he'd return in a cold minute if asked.
Ever since this interview dropped I though the character he was talking about was Ro.
Me too! Fingers crossed, Michelle Forbes is always brilliant.
Well her or Barclay make the most sense out of the main cast adjacent TNG characters that have yet to appear in either S1 or 2.
Not everyone's hair grays at the same rate. My grandfather is 90 and still has dark gray (if thin) hair. Meanwhile, Steve Martin...
This is true. But Worf was shown to still have dark streaks in his hair in the future. I just hope Dorn and the directors made sure Worf is played as a younger Klingon and not like a 70 year old human. Dorn looks and sounds great for his age. He could pull it off easily.
Was gonna bring up Steve Martin, but you beat me to it! I'm 35, and that guy has had white hair my whole life. Also, Klingon Pai Mei is fucking badass.
Never understood the objections to white hair.
This is really cool.
Now introducing the Klingon sport of kurling.
