The Orb 13: One Bat'leth to Rule Them All / by Trek fm


He began as the token Klingon in “Encounter at Farpoint” and evolved into one of the longest-running characters on television. As a critical part of the crew on two Star Trek series, Worf was transformed from a two-dimensional representation of Federation-Klingon progress into a three-dimensional representation of the Human-Klingon balancing act. In this episode of The Orb, hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing look at Worf, how he struggled to reconcile his human upbringing with his desire to be truly Klingon, how he is often a warrior of contradiction, how his relationships with Miles, Jadzia, and Martok shaped him, and his ultimate goal of bringing his two very different sides together to create one honourable man.
