Worf Wants You To Pay Him To Get Romantic

Sorry Troi. Either you get $750,000 or you get to steppin’.

Poor Worf — not only did he get knocked on his ass by every two bit alien punk that beamed aboard the Enterprise, but it seems the actor who played Worf, Michael Dorn, has become kind of a sad dude.

See, Michael Dorn is tired of doing the dumb sci-fi stuff and wants to make a romantic comedy, but because us dumb sci-fi fans are the only people who know who Michael Dorn is, he’s set up a Kickstarter project called Through The Fire – Life After Star Trek.

Sounds like a semi-autobiographical story about a guy finding love after being typecast as a bumpy headed alien for most of his career, right? Nope. Dorn’s movie is going to be a straight-ahead, frankly kind of boring sounding, romantic comedy about “a couple of dazzling New York urbanites who are set-up on the worst blind date ever, only to find out they have more in common than they realize.”

Hmmmm. Hit the jump for a video of Dorn pitching his movie…

So yeah, the only sci-fi connection this movie will have is that it’ll star several former Star Trek actors, but hey, I’m not going to pretend a romantic comedy starring Worf, Counsellor Troi, Quark and Kira Nerys doesn’t sound at least somewhat intriguing.

You can find Dorn’s Kickstarter page right here. So far Dorn has only raised around 44,000 of his $750,000 goal. Poor Worf.
