Commander) Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”If what happened to the first cast is called being typecast,” Dorn says, “then I want to be typecast. Of course, they didn’t get the jobs after ‘Trek.’ But they are making their sixth movie. Name me someone else on television who has made six movies!”

Dorn has appeared on-screen in more Star Trek episodes and movies as the same character than anyone else: he appeared in 175 episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation,102 episodes of Deep Space Nine and four Star Trek movies, bringing his total to 281 appearances as Worf.

In 2012, Dorn announced a desire to return to his Klingon role in a television series tentatively titled Star Trek: Captain Worf. He said: I had come up with the idea because I love [Worf] and I think he’s a character that hasn’t been fully developed and hasn’t been fully realized. Once I started thinking about it, it became obvious to me that I wanted to at least put it out there, which I have, and the response has been pretty amazing. We’ve been contacted by different individuals–I can’t say who and all that–about wanting to come on board and be part of this
