CaptainWorf

We have been hearing a lot of rumors of late about Michael Dorn‘s proposed Captain Warf ‘Star Trek’ series, and now we finally have a title for the project he is pitching to Paramount and CBS, which is ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Worf Chronicles.’ While a bit of a mouthful, it makes the most sense in marketing the show and letting fans and newcomers know exactly where the show would fit in the pantheon of series’ the franchise has produced over the years. And calling it ‘The Worf Chronicles’ fits perfectly with Dorn’s rationale for wanting to do the show, as quoted below:

“I’m working on a campaign to bring back Star Trek, and my ulterior reason is to fully flesh out the Worf character (finally).”

And how can the fans help in the matter? When Dorn visited Reddit recently for an ‘Ask me Anything’ session, he provided links to a mini-muffin ordering page, with the idea that if 1 million mini-muffins are purchased and sent to CBS, the network might “crumble” (love the pun) and potentially give in to the fan demand for another ‘Star Trek’ show.
