Not gonna happen:

In the DS9 episode "Change of Heart", Worf prematurely ends a mission to contact a Cardassian informant inside the Dominion in order to save his injured wife. The informant is subsequently executed by the Dominion, causing Captain Benjamin Sisko, the commander of Deep Space Nine, to caution that Starfleet would not grant Worf his own command after this incident, but adds that had he been forced to choose between his duty and his wife, he would have done the same thing.

It could be set in the Klingon Empire.

I think he's a character that hasn't been fully developed and hasn't been fully realized

He's been on Trek more than any other character. If he hasn't been "realized" by now it's not going to happen.

I want to see him teamed up with Captain Klag from the IKS Gorkon novel series

Not a bad idea. Worf as the half human Klingon captain. The Klingon empire is crippled, the Romulans are making their moves, what's left of the Cardissans are causing problems. A non-human centric Star Trek could be cool.

Worf is 100% Klingon. He was raised by humans.

My bad. Can we at least say he's been corrupted by humans?

On a side note, why did Alexander age so fast? He was born in what the third episode of TNG? By DS9, maybe 7 years later he was like 30.
 
2013-04-20 03:50:14 PM
I remember when Dorn once said that he wanted to move on from playing Worf when he was in is 50s. I guess he's settled in and has decided he might as well enjoy the ride.

A paycheque is a paycheque. These Trek actors mostly lucked into their gigs.... Most of them just aren't a-list material and their careers dry up afterward... Not just typecasting, but also because they just don't have it, you know?

No, you might be thinking of the one episode with Sisko's son coming back from the future. There were several episodes with Alexander where he was at least in his 20s and whining about not wanting to be a Klingon warrior.

There's a TNG episode where Alexander does come back from the future to try to convince his younger self to become a warrior.

Well besides that he's at least in his 20s by the time DS9 rolls around.

I'm sure I would watch it. I liked the character quite a bit.There is a boatload of unique stories they could try - especially with minor part actors that would no doubt love to get back into costume. I never really got a kick out of Troi, for example (and she is even my type), but I really enjoyed her cameos in Voyager. It'd be cool to see B. Crusher as an admiral once too. Production quality is very high these days with a decent budget and good writing.

I like Worf and all, but if someone get's a spin off it must be Nog!  I want to see Captain Nog and his Uncle Quark.

Is this part of the deal where Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are coming back for Episode VII?
 
2013-04-20 05:09:10 PM
Sounds like fun, but I won't put too much stock in this until I see an official press release with an air date and/or a list of people who have actually signed on to the project.

Yeah, I wouldn't be mad at that. Might be interesting. I also thought it would've been interesting to have a Trek series based on Capt. Sulu, instead of Enterprise.
One thing though, in any new Trek series, get rid of the idiots making decisions. Not just Berman/Braga, et al. All the way down the line. Don't let the same ol' wardrobe and design people in the door. As much as I like and respect Michael Westmore, his work towards the tail end of the Trek series was tending towards just recycling variations on forehead ridges. And for that matter, get rid of people like Yacobian and Howard who make creative decisions based solely on budget. "Hey, why create a whole new alien make up? Why not just take last week's forehead ridges and turn them upside down?"

Came here for this.

Ennuipoet: I want to see Captain Nog and his Uncle Quark.


And this. Nog was such a wonderful character, perhaps the most developed in the franchise -- from Jake Sisko's "bad influence" and comic relief to trusted friend and student, then ensign, war hero, and eventually captain. It's always interesting to see how a SF officer's cultural background informs their philosophy and decision making in tandem with SF rules and the Prime Directive. It was interesting to see Nog applying the Rules of Acquisition as he pursued his career.

2013-04-20 05:23:04 PM
I was about to drop a quick joke about not being a mainline character since I.M. Weasel, but I have to admit I didn't see much of the DS9 series. Probably because I was trying to have a life.
 
2013-04-20 05:25:19 PM
I support this.  He could be the commander of the USS Worf a new ship that is powered by Worf Drive.

As far as I know, they did. I believe the official line was "we even fired the janitors", and the Branon/Braga/Berman unholy alliance has been banned from Trek,

Of course, this was all in relation to New Trek after "Nemesis" ended up sucking. I do hope this applies to any new show that comes along.

And God damn it all, I want to see a new Star Trek, with people exploring space, and discovering new things, and having adventures. Maybe do a series like Voyager, but not terrible?

Like I said in a different thread, an entire series based on the Mirror Universe. Book it done.

The budget has always affected episodes and writing. I can't find the source but I recall TNG creators talking about the need to have episodes that take place solely on existing sets with minimal special effects in order to "save-up" for more action oriented story lines...

Ok, this story is from 7 months ago!

Also, there's an interview with Frakes and Sirtis where they (joke) about a spin-off with the Rikers on their own ship and it actually sounded plausible!
Google it, it's an entertaining interview

Bah, under the new Jar Jar Trek continuity Worf or none of the Next Generation shiat even happened.

Trek as we knew it is dead.

Mugato: I think he's a character that hasn't been fully developed and hasn't been fully realized

He's been on Trek more than any other character. If he hasn't been "realized" by now it's not going to happen.


I agree.

The Captain in any Trek show/movie is ostensibly the main character, and the audience's window into the story. They have to be well-rounded and relatable. That a TV rule, not my rule. Worf isn't well-rounded; and if his character hasn't grown into that in, what, 12? 15? years of on-screen character history, a spin-off show isn't going to work. They'd have to suddenly give him a sense of humor, wisdom that trumps that of his officers, and a ton of other traits that he simply hasn't shown outside of a moment or two.

That said, it would be cool to see a show like that happen, without the changes to Worf's character. Something like, he gets a command due to whatever circumstances, but he doesn't always make the "correct" choices because he really shouldn't be in the Captain's chair. I think it would be nice to see a  Trek like that -- but, a "dark & gritty" Trek would be as foreign to the show's, (oh, shiat, I'm using this word) zeitgest as JJ's HYPER ACTION YELLING PUNCHING RUNNING HOLY SHAZBOT ULTRA INTENSE MONSTER TRUCK FARK YEAH movie adaptations are.

This is why I liked Enterprise (save that godsawful theme song); it wasn't perfect, but it at least wasn't, er, perfect.

It's Starfleet's fault. They should never have been sent on that mission together in the first place.

Meh.  I seem to remember a DS9 episode where Dax chides Worf for embracing the harsh, violent, code-of-honor part of Klingon culture, but neglecting the fun-loving, blood-wine chugging part.  Seriously, prune juice?  WTF?  I'd rather see a show about a character like Martok--a true warrior who loves battle, but has a sense of humor and loves a good party (yeah, I know, he was promoted the chancellor, but certainly there are others like him).

This would be great for all the fans who have been asking "What is Warf up to now?"  I'm sure hundreds of people would tune in.

You would think at one point in time they ran into each other, aren't they both from the Gamma Quadrant? I don't know how they could assimilate the changelings though. I still think they should develop Cardassians more like they did with Romulans, Vulcans, and Klingon, considering they were a main race in DS9. Garak would be the perfect character to help with that, and the fact he is like the best character in Star Trek ever.
 
2013-04-20 05:58:10 PM
Okay, so in this episode, Worf suggests a plan of action that everyone immediately dismisses as completely dumb, then gets his ass kicked by the newest forehead-of-the-week alien.

In response, Worf lowers his eyebrows and stares disapprovingly at the state of things.

They had that, it was called Enterprise, and it was as good as its theme song was bad.  And because it aired on UPN or WB or whatever the fark it was then, there was occasional gratuitous nudity.
