While Simon Pegg recently stated that ‘Star Trek 3’ starts shooting in 4 weeks, actor Michael Dorn, who is best known for his role as the Klingon Worf in the second Star Trek TV series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, is looking to revitalize the franchise with a new series titled Star Trek: Captain Worf.
According to his wikipedia page, “Dorn has appeared more times as a regular cast member than any other actor of the Star Trek franchise, spanning five film and 272 television episodes. He also appeared as Worf’s grandfather, Colonel Worf in the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.”
In speaking with TrekNews.net, the actor stated, “I had come up with the idea because I love the character and I think he’s a character that hasn’t been fully developed and hasn’t been fully realized.”
Created by Gene Roddenberry and under the ownership of CBS and Paramount, there has been 5 TV series including Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise.
The cancellation of Enterprise in 2005 ended an 18-year run of back-to-back new Star Trek shows beginning with The Next Generation in 1987.
Although he’s work periodically in other films and TV series, Next Generation is where he’s best known so if he can jumpstart the franchise again, best of luck.
More recently, Dan Deevy of the CinemaSource.com sat down with Dorn as he spoke more in depth about the timeline of the series and his idea how to get the series made.
