Lt. Commander Worf was one of the most popular characters both on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine

The Klingon, played by Michael Dorn, had a commanding presence, a wry wit, and a warrior’s spirt, a perfect trifecta. Worf-centric episodes are some of the most popular on both of the series. Fans have been wanting him to show up on Star Trek: Picard or any of the future series, but most of all, they want a show that is about Worf, his life, his travels, his adventures, and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be seriously considered now.

When Star Trek: Picard was announced, Dorn said that he thought CBS moving forward on new series was an “encouraging development in regards to the Worf series he had been pitching.” And Dorn is still on board with the idea of a series that is all about Klingon culture and traditions. In a recent interview with ComicBookMovie, he did admit that the prosthetics for Worf was the only dark spot of his time playing the Klingon. But, fortunately, none of the new Star Trek series have had long seasons so that would definitely make things a bit easier. And fans would be happy with a 10 or 12-episode series and with the fact that Dorn would look like the familiar Klingon they know and love rather than like one from Star Trek: Discovery.

At any rate, we’ve seen hundreds of episodes of Star Trek that have taken place aboard a starship. A Worf-centric series would take place aboard a Klingon battle cruiser and his home world, giving fans a different view of the alien species. And with their complicated history, Klingons would provide Star Trek writers with enough material to last for several seasons.

If you spend any time on Twitter at all, you know that fans are far from over Worf. They want to see more of him, and with more Star Trek series on the way, surely there is room for one more which would, undoubtedly, be one of the best.
