Dax and Worf's Romance Didn't Have to Be Forced For Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
By DANIELLE RYAN
“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” was full of friendships and partnerships turned romantic, with many members of the space station crew finding love around them. None of these relationships were as excellent as the one that grew between goofball Trill science officer Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell) and the stoic Klingon warrior and strategic operations officer, Worf (Michael Dorn).
The actors were close friends and wanted to spend more time together, so they would flirt with one another in-character, hoping the writers would give them more scenes. In an interview, Farrell said, “Oh, we'd thought we were so clever flirting with each so we'd have more stuff to do together, just because we were friends. Ha! You'd think they had that planned the whole time because it all just went so easily.”
Worf first appeared on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and Dorn revealed to TrekZone Network that the creators of “Deep Space Nine” didn’t have a fleshed-out idea for Worf in the new series. Dorn said that once the writers saw the characters' chemistry, they said, “Oh my god, we've got to put these people together!” Thankfully, they established a romance that felt
quite authentic.
