Picard Came From An Unproduced Spin-Off Script Written By Michael Dorn [Exclusive]

In “Picard,” it looks like Worf will be teaming up with Raffi in at least the short term, which Dorn said was an addition he appreciated. “It’s sort of like they gave me a student [Michelle Hurd’s Raffi], but she’s not a student,” Dorn said before adding:

“She’s not like somebody who just walks up and goes, ‘Oh, I want to be taught.’ She has her own thing and it just happens to be, our lives are coinciding in a way, and she can look at me and I can look at her and we get something from each other. And I think that was their doing, the writers and the producers. They understood that. And I’ve always had, I would say, good luck. I’ve always said, ‘Hey, look, this is what I think,’ and they’ll take off with it. And I never had to really go up and yell and scream about parts and stuff like that.”

What Dorn didn’t share was the status of that Worf spin-off script. We know that the “Star Trek” universe will expand with new shows in the pipeline — could a Worf-centered series be part of that? I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to watch Worf in say, a show with a detective bent, where the Klingon gets zen on chamomile as he solves murders.

In the meantime, we’ll get to see how chill Worf remains when new episodes of season 3 are released every Thursday on Paramount+.
