On Star Trek: The Next Generation, nobody ever listened to Worf, their Chief of Security. For a Klingon warrior who was the head of security, he lost a surprising number of fights and seemingly never had his security plans heeded. The conceit was simple: if someone could beat up Worf they must be a badass, and if someone disagreed with Worf’s suggestions they could conveniently launch into a lengthy monologue on compassion and diplomacy and all that forshak.

The unfortunate outcome of these two writers’ room shortcuts was that Worf’s ideas were constantly, depressingly shot down and we had a hard time believing in his badassery when he so rarely got to bust some skulls. He should have at least been allowed to smack Wesley around, and then we could have a supercut of that instead of the two supercuts below.

The first video below demonstrates why Worf was the Charlie Brown of the Enterprise crew, and the second one shows him getting pwned in all the Worf Effect situations. But he had the flu!

He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
