It looks like CBS could be working on a new Star Trek spin-off starring Starfleet’s first Klingon officer, Worf, in this new interview with Michael Dorn on Inverse
Now that the Star Trek Universe is expanding rapidly, it could be the perfect time for a Klingon spin-off.
“This is, I think, perfectly timed and placed, […]You’re not stepping on anybody’s toes, and I always thought the Klingon Empire was a great empire to write about because it’s Shakespearean.”
“The Klingon Empire has had to evolve and change and they don’t like that and they’re fighting it every step of the way, […] Just like our world now is becoming a global world where it’s not just like, ‘Oh we’re Californians and that’s all that really matters.’ We’re talking about something here and it affects China.”
Discovery or Generations?
Dorn himself has been campaigning for the series for a while with fans rallying around him by launching the #WeWantWorf hashtag.
Fans may wonder if the Picard show could be used as a launching pad for a Worf spinoff, with a possible appearance by the Klingon. Dorn admits that this would not be a cameo role though.
“I’m only interested in it if it’s something really interesting; if the character was a major part of the franchise or whatever the show is,” he says. “He’s not just going to show up, beat somebody up, and then go home.”
