Star Trek is all on board with doing unique spinoffs, but a Raffi and Worf one is not necessary.
Star Trek: Picard brought all sorts of unique spinoff ideas to the forefront of the fandom, mostly focusing on Seven of Nine and the son of Jean-Luc Picard, Jack Crusher. The idea would feature Crusher, and Seven of Nine apart of a ship filled with legacy character’s children; an idea that sounds good on paper but would simply be an attempt to recapture magic that ended in the early 2000s.
Still, spinoff ideas abound and many are going back to the one that has garnered interest for nearly 20 years, a spinoff featuring Worf as the captain of his own ship. Speaking to Star Trek’s Explorer magazine (via TrekMovie.com), Michelle Hurd, who plays Raffi on Picard, was asked about working with Michael Dorn (Worf) again.
She was clearly interested and told the interviewer she was very open to doing so, saying;
"So open. I think that the Worf/Raffi story can be told. There’s so much for us to tell. That kind of energy, that chemistry that we have, it’s tenfold. Also, it’s necessary to see these two individuals on camera again. As a child, to see us represented is incredibly powerful. It’s impactful and necessary. And, of course, throw Seven in there!"
There’s not a lot of interest in Raffi-centric Star Trek spinoffs.
Hurd is a talented actress, but her character was not well-received by fans. The character of Raffi was one of the more maligned aspects of the first season of the show and her character didn’t get much better. She represented the series’ attempt to go “grimdark” as if it were True Detective or something on HBO.
Fans didn’t take kindly to that and largely didn’t embrace her character at all. Trying to force a spinoff on fans won’t go well if it’s focused on Raffi.
