One Star Trek legend is good to go for a Captain Worf series.
Star Trek is experiencing a renaissance. More like an experimental revolution, with many new concepts and ideas being tried that break away from the norm of Star Trek. It hasn’t been a smooth experience, with many fans lamenting the experimental nature of the newer shows and wanting something far more in line with Trek, like with the upcoming Strange New World series. Yet, another newer show, Picard, is opening up others to the idea of an anthology series of sorts. Working with other iconic characters in short 30+ episode series. This is an idea many fans love, including if it means finally seeing Worf as a captain.
Worf, played by Michael Dorn, is one of the most popular characters (and actors) in Trek. He was a central character on The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, and ever since the debut of Picard, many had been calling for other series in the same vein; mainly looking at Dorn’s Worf or Kate Mulgrew’s Kathryn Janeway.
Dorn is open to the idea but he’s not the only one. Another cast member who acted alongside Dorn in both the Next Generation and Deep Space Nine would love to join his friend for such a series; that man is Colm Meaney, aka Chief Miles O’Brien. Speaking to Big Issue.com, Meany made it known he would absolutely roll with a Dorn-led series.
"Oh, absolutely I’d go for that. I love Michael. …He was such a great character."
Star Trek should pursue a Worf series after Picard ends
Picard is set to end after season three, and it seems like a good idea to bring back Dorn, Meaney, and maybe some others to do a Worf series; even if it’s limited in the number of seasons it gets. The biggest hangup, however, is making sure to do the series sooner rather than later. Most of the Next Generation/Deep Space Nine cast are in their 60s, and time waits for no one. If Star Trek really wants to do a Captain Worf series; and why shouldn’t they, timing is of the essence.
