Nice surprise indeed.

KDF got new hair lol.

Warning, this poster tends to talk nonsensically when caffine levels fall below 80%.

they can do it for an image, as it is a homage or fan art. They are not using the image for commercial gain, so Dorn does not lose out by it's use. Also it is not ingame per-se.

splitting hairs but I am sure they dotted the i's and crossed the t's before going ahead with this.

You know, I was just beginning to wonder if we we're going to get the sash.

Or it could be that since the distinctive look of the character is achieved not by Dorn, but by all the plastic crap, fake teeth, hair, etc etc glued on to Dorns head, that likeness rights don't apply. Don't think the plastic parts are entitled to residuals or image usage fees.

If STO's 25-TNG Worf spoke using Dorn's voice, obviously, my argument dies.

Probably also why Morn is now in game and looks so much like screen-morn. It was an inflatible suit and a rubber head.

But who knows?

Per Character Unlock, thats a serious bummer.

Will it come again?

Or could it maybe be in a req pack. so i could save for later?

A nicely written Blog. TNG made me a fan too. Thank you for this. I am much much more excited about this little Trek canon gift, then i am over the new Lock Box. And: This IS a recognizable Worf! Good job.

Now go and start working on a TNG bundle.

Five days bro... you telling me you can't unlock it for all your characters in 5 days? It's supposed to be a short mission.
