I'm well aware that Klingons live an average of 150 years. My point was that Michael is getting older. The rigors of playing an active, relatively young Klingon day in and day out for 9 months a year would put a lot of wear and tear on his body. I really don't see Worf being the Picard type: sit in the chair and give big dramatic speeches.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Worf is an overly cooked character.

"Star Trek: TNG" and "Star Trek: DS9" covered all of Worf's back, middle, and forward history.

We do not need to see Worf in a third series.

Really? I think that would be awesome.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

I think it would be completely out of character - as he's always portrayed as attack first, talk second.

Getting what some small fraction of players thinks sounds cool over what's in character or canon is how STO got where it's at right now.

I don't think it would be completely out of character. He could always do the speech after he hands someone their left butt cheek.

There's an entire genre of special effects and set design specifically for letting aging action stars look like they're doing awesome things without actually breaking their hips.

Um, it's dead until it's been greenlit for production and with CBS holding off on new 'prime universe' Star Trek stuff on TV until Paramount's current JJverse feature film series has concluded (and no signs of that given the financial success of the latest film; the fact all the actors signed a three feature deal; and there's now talk of trying to extend that; sorry, but I doubt i'll get greenlit for production.

(Remember george Takei was campaigning for a Captain Sulu/U.S.S. Excelsior series for nearly a decade that culminated in STVI and the VOY episode "Flashback" <--- Which Takei tried o promote as a backdoor pilot, which went nowhere.)

Who knows what'll happen 10 years down the line, but at this point and time, i don't see gthis getting any sort of real production approval at this time.

Sisko put a reprimand on Worf's record which he (Sisko) said would almost certainly mean he (Worf) would never be given command of a starship...

Personally if i saw Worf again in a prime universe trek feature, on either tv or film I would love to see him play an Admiral. He got denied alot during his time on the enterprise would be nice to see him deny some people for a change.

Star Trek : Bird of Prey

A show about the trials of Ambassador Worf's son Alexander/K'mtar as he strives to be the warrior his father was (and still is?) onboard a Klingon BoP assigned to deep space/patrolling the Cardassian Protectorates. Plenty of scope for exploration (Klingon style), skirmishes, stops at DS9 and a good dose of "what it means to BE Klingon".
It gives us the "human" aspect as Alexander is half-human and doesn't think or act like a full-blood Klingon. Maybe throw in a human raised by Klingons who is more Klingon than Alexander as a counter and you can have fun watching the "alien" be more human than a "human".
