The Orb 75: The One Where Earl Grey Talks DS9 / by Trek fm

Worf with Earl Grey.

Over the course of seven seasons, Worf became a fan favorite on The Next Generation. With Michael Dorn now free from the week-to-week requirements of life aboard the Enterprise-D, he was available to lend a hand on that old Cardassian space station—which those in power felt was just want the young spinoff needed. The idea was praised by some, rejected by many. While it may have initially been viewed as a gimmick, hindsight shows us that not only was the decision to bring Worf to DS9 a good one, the station turned out to be just the environment the character needed to thrive.

In this episode of The Orb, hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing are joined by the crew from our TNG show Earl Grey—Phillip Gilfus, Darren Moser, and Daniel Proulx—for the second half of our two-part crossover look at Worf. The TNG gang give us their perspective on seeing one of their own make DS9 home, how Worf meshed with the station's crew, his relationship with Jadzia and Ezri, where he ended up at the end of his two-series arc, and more.
