As part of our coverage of Star Trek's 50th anniversary , I talked to a dozen cast members from across the franchise about everything from Star Trek's inclusive message to whether they really could speak Klingon. When Michael Dorn was getting ready for his role as Worf on " Star Trek: The Next Generation ," the showrunners barely told him anything about his character. Well, that's not entirely true. He did get one hint from Gene Roddenberry, the former airline pilot who dreamed up Star Trek. Worf was born to a warrior race of aliens called Klingons. They routinely went to war with the United Federation of Planets, the organization upon whose Enterprise starship the show took place. Now, Worf was going to be a member of the crew. So, while watching his colleagues act out scenes without him, Dorn noticed the camaraderie developing among the characters. He decided to do something different -- make Worf an outcast. Dorn took many subtle actions to make Worf feel out of place.

Michael Dorn born December 9, is an American actor and voice actor who is known for his role as the Klingon Worf in the Star Trek franchise. From his first appearance in the series premiere episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation , " Encounter at Farpoint ", in to his last in Star Trek: Nemesis in , Dorn has appeared more times as a regular cast member than any other Star Trek actor in the franchise's history, spanning five films and television episodes. Following the end of his Star Trek career, Dorn had supporting roles in a number of independent feature films, including Shadow Hours , Lessons for an Assassin , and the Santa Clause trilogy , in which he appeared in a cameo role as the Sandman. He studied radio and television production at Pasadena City College. From there, he pursued a career in music as a performer with several different rock music bands, traveling to San Francisco and then back to Los Angeles. Dorn first appeared in Rocky as Apollo Creed 's bodyguard, though he was not credited. The producer was impressed with his work, so he introduced Dorn to an agent who then introduced him to acting teacher Charles E. Conrad to study acting for six months. He then landed a regular role on the television series CHiPs. Dorn's most famous role to date is that of the Klingon Starfleet officer Lieutenant later Lt.

We are in a predicament, because we are Jewish and it is difficult to get married between April and November during day light savings time because the sun sets much later which elongates our sabbath and makes it difficult to start a wedding at a reasonable time. I dated non mormon men. The church can be a very cruel place for single people. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. He believes in God, but also believes that God is everywhere, and therefore does not need to be worshipped in a specific place of worship with specific prayers. About two years into our marriage, I got sick of waiting in bed for him to come read scriptures with me. When we obsess over it we start acting like a customer in a clothing store wondering what he or she will look like if they wear that particular wardrobe. They will teach the boys that masturbation is evil, which will cause most boys to lie about it and feel deep shame and guilt. I am willing to add his religious observances to our worship as a couple and as a family, but should I also be willing to give up some of my participation in my own faith в for example by attending the temple or Sunday services slightly less often in order to spend more time as an entire family. If he's too tired from work to go to a party that we both wanted to go to, then I'm cool with staying in since I just enjoy his company and am happy to finally be seeing him.

As part of our coverage of Star Trek's 50th anniversary , I talked to a dozen cast members from across the franchise about everything from Star Trek's inclusive message to whether they really could speak Klingon. When Michael Dorn was getting ready for his role as Worf on " Star Trek: The Next Generation ," the showrunners barely told him anything about his character. Well, that's not entirely true. He did get one hint from Gene Roddenberry, the former airline pilot who dreamed up Star Trek. Worf was born to a warrior race of aliens called Klingons.

They routinely went to war with the United Federation of Planets, the organization upon whose Enterprise starship the show took place. Now, Worf was going to be a member of the crew. So, while watching his colleagues act out scenes without him, Dorn noticed the camaraderie developing among the characters. He decided to do something different -- make Worf an outcast. Dorn took many subtle actions to make Worf feel out of place. For the character's voice, he spoke in lower tones and in a more deliberate way.

He also made Worf seem more anxious to go to battle than the rest of the crew, always the first to warn that an alien wasn't trustworthy or that they should be ready to fire on a likely adversary. The result was that Worf was a commanding presence. But Dorn was worried it wouldn't last. The security officer he played was routinely beat up by aliens invading the ship. Soon, he believed, the audience wouldn't trust that Worf was a capable warrior. Roddenberry reassured him the scenes weren't meant to make Worf look weak, but rather to make the invading aliens look strong.

Still, Dorn protested. So they found a compromise. Worf would use sword-like weapons in battle, making him seem more capable and harder to defeat. After some research, Dorn and the show's visual-effects producer, Dan Curry, invented the bat'leth , a double-sided scimitar-like weapon. They also created a form of Klingon martial arts with which to use this new weapon in battle. After Dorn and Curry came up with an idea about how a battle should unfold, they'd bring it to the stunt choreographers.

Worf may have always been a man of action, but Dorn, the actor, wasn't always willing to do the stunts. In one episode, " Ethics ," some cargo fell and landed on Worf, paralyzing him. Dorn remembers that for the scene, the camera crew wanted to show the viewpoint of the barrel as it fell.

Dorn, now 63, went on to become one of the most prolific actors in the Star Trek universe. He signed on as a regular on "The Next Generation," which ran from and then " Deep Space Nine ," which ran from He ultimately appeared in episodes by one count. Getting into makeup for the character helped Dorn become one of the most well-informed actors on the set. It took two and a half hours in the makeup chair for a prosthetic forehead to be painstakingly attached to his own, giving him plenty of time to read the Los Angeles Times cover to cover and finish the crossword puzzle.

What made Worf popular, Dorn thinks, wasn't how he was different from his shipmates, but how similar he was. The Sting song in which he sings, "I hope the Russians love their children too," is how Dorn said he thought of Worf's character. Dorn still acts, though he spends more time these days in stage plays.

He's currently preparing for a production of "Antony and Cleopatra" in Orlando, Florida. Here are edited excerpts of Dorn's answers to our warp-speed make that Worf speed round of questions. What piece of Star trek tech do you wish we had today? I'd like a warp drive. I'm a speed freak he's also a pilot. I love jets, and the faster the better.

To take off from where I live and go around the moon in 10 minutes or so, that'd be pretty cool. What's your favorite piece of real-world tech you have today?

The smartphone is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. I was dating this lady in Seattle. I was in Germany at a convention and we were Skyping. Then I said, "I've got to go downstairs because they have this party that they have for the actors, and I have to go make an appearance.

And that to me is insane. But I gotta tell you, I just got a Tesla S. And that is an amazing piece of machinery. It's a little egotistical because I'm driving on the freeway and I'm looking around going, 'I can smoke everybody on this freeway. But everybody else, I can just smoke them. Who's your favorite captain? That's the kind of guy that you would have. He became more like a hero type later on in the movies and the latter stages of the TV show. But at the very beginning, he was a guy that sat and he asked for opinion.

He got something from everybody and then he made up his decision from there. He was very cerebral, I think that's what it would be. I also liked him because he wasn't a big guy.

But his being, who he is, his outer-ness, made him seem a lot taller. You really didn't see him as shorter than you. And that to me is part of it.

That you don't have to have a full head of hair. Or you don't have to be 6'1" or 6'2" to be in command. I think he epitomized that whole thing. Did you ever have to learn Klingon? No, no. There's a dictionary -- a Klingon-to-English, English-to-Klingon dictionary. So, you never had to speak it. And they don't do a lot of Klingon talk on the show.

You know, there's not paragraphs of dialogue or soliloquies and things like that in Klingon. Except for when they translated Hamlet. But we didn't have to say it on the show. You had a line here and a line there, so that was kind of it. You didn't have a chance to really learn. Star Wars or Star Trek? I was a big fan of both but Star Wars was just a different feel altogether. It was so smart. That exciting and epic moment when Vader comes on the scene -- I mean, have you ever seen anybody more evil?

You know? It was just great. After the second one, he says, "Luke, I am your father. There's definitely room for both. Star Trek and Star Wars are two different things.
