could Worf's career be salvaged?

Recommended Posts

When it comes to getting off topic, I think we're rather liberal about that here.

 

I would welcome more Worf stories in future trek productions. He played the role from 1987 to 2002. That a long time to play the same character in that makeup all the time. With his one year hiatus in '94-'95, he played the role for 11 seasons. That's not bad at all.

and becoming someone else is hard enough. but more or less creating a character, then becoming that character, and then continue to be that other person for 11 years! not to mention anything trek/worf related dorn still does now! and on top of all that, this character had a diff everything! culture, lang, etc.. and having to pretend to be angry (or whatever word YOU would like to put there) and what not for that long, gotta have its trials!

Worf DID play the role for ages and ages, no dispute there... and that plays against you but if you look at Jeffrey Coombs... wonderful actor, multiple Trek roles. Granted, he was never in the A-list but he did a good job in very different roles. Obviously, Shran, Weyoun and Brunt were all under a considerable amount of prosthesis but still...

:o It was just a joke, I didn't know.

 

But I did find this:

Michael Dorn, most known for playing the Klingon Starfleet officer Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation, makes a cameo appearance as Colonel Worf. Col. Worf, who defends Kirk and McCoy at their trial, is Worf's paternal grandfather after whom he was named.

I think it probably was mentioned in a comic book or novel that he was related. after all, it was the same guy playing both parts.

dunno. my extensions are reserved for female crew members.  B)

 

imdb trivia also seems to say Dorn's Worf was portraying his own grandfather.

I felt it made sense that he would be Worf's grandfather. I wonder how far he rose in rank? Maybe he became say vice-chancellor of the high council?
