Could a new Star Trek TV show about Worf actually happen?

There have been tons of ideas batted around for a new Star Trek show, including Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer collaborating on a show tying in with the J.J. Abrams films. But apparently one idea has gotten as far as actual discussions: a show about Worf, the Klingon who appeared in TNG and DS9.

Actor Michael Dorn tells the Huffington Post that there was actual interest in a Captain Worf show last year — although it was put on hold because of Star Trek Into Darkness:

Last year there was interest and I talked to a couple producers and we actually had pitch meeting with Paramount and CBS," Dorn told me. "Business things got in the way in terms of the JJ Abrams movie coming out and CBS/Paramount and their relationship with JJ Abrams. I don't think they wanted to step on his toes by putting a new series on, but it's not dead yet. I've finished the script and hopefully someone will take a look at this and say 'we can do this.'

It doesn't sound like you should get your hopes up any time soon, though. In any case, it would be fascinating to see how a show set in the TNG era would cope with the changes to the timeline in the Abrams films. Would Vulcan still exist in the Captain Worf show? Or would we get to see the future of the Abramsverse? [via The Wertzone]
