Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Sees The Return Of Worf
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for Season 3, Episode 2 of “Star Trek: Picard.”
Season 3 of “Star Trek: Picard” reunites the cast of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” on-screen for the first time in years, and its Episode 2 reintroduces Worf, the Klingon played by Michael Dorn. Some of the images released previously hinted about how he looks in the latest franchise, and the episode not only confirms much of his appearance but gives him a badass entry.
The episode throws Worf into the fray when undercover agent Raffi (Michelle Hurd) gets into trouble while trying to secure information from a Ferengi broker. A mysterious stranger, later revealed to be Worf, appears from the darkness, saving Raffi with his quick, fluid movements, and even decapitates the Ferengi with his familiar-looking weapon.
Worf’s entry felt even more badass when his first words turned out to be a stern reprimand to Raffi, saying, “I told you ... to not engage.” That was all the episode had to offer regarding Worf, but there is certainly more to come, with Season 3 showrunner Terry Matalas describing his vision for Worf as something like a samurai with a bat'leth.
