Lieutenant Commander / Ambassador Worf - Star Trek - Deep Space Nine

Worf from Star Trek - Deep Space Nine played by Michael Dorn.

Worf is a fictional male Klingon in the Star Trek - Deep Space Nine television series who was played on screen by Michael Dorn. Worf holds the rank of Lieutenant Commander (Enterprise), Ambassador (DS9).

Joining Deep Space 9

At the beginning of series 4, Worf joins the crew of the spacestation when Captain Benjamin Sisko requests the help of Starfleet to deal with a large fleet of Klingon craft having arrived at the station. The only person able to deal with Klingons is a Klingon according to Sisko.

When he arrived on the station, he was greeted by Chief Miles O'Brien as they had both served together previously on board the Enterprise.

Worf was without an assignment as the Enterprise had been destroyed when Jean-Luc Picard took on Doctor Tolian Soran in the first Next Generation Movie entitled Star Trek VII, Generations.

When Gowron, the supreme leader of the Klingon Empire arrives on the station after hearing Worf is there, tries to persuade Worf to join the Klingon Empire, Worf declines, saying he has given his word to Starfleet and can't break it as it would dishonourable otherwise to do so..

Worf Family


Alexander is Worf's son who makes occasional appearances on the series.


Kurn is Worf's brother. In the episode 'The Sons of Mogh', Kurn comes to Deep Space 9 and demands that his brother kills him so that he may enter the Klingon heaven with honour. Worf agrees but Kurn's life is saved when Lieutenant Jadzia Dax realises what is going on and interrupts the sacrifice and saves the brother's life.

Attempts to make Kurn change his mind and so the crew come up with another plan. Instead of killing Kurn, they will wipe his memory so that thoughts of killing himself are vanquished. The plan works and his memory is wiped and given a new name and identity.

Kurn had wanted to commit suicide because he had defied Gowron, the leader of the Klingons. Gowron wanted a war with the Space Federation and Kurn had objected to it as he saw it was a war they could not win. The house of Mogh was dissolved along with the title and land. He could not commit suicide as that would be dishonourable so he asked Worf to kill him.
