Star Trek’s Worf, Michael Dorn, Joins Twitter
[ Social Media]

Michael Dorn, an actor most well-known for his role as the Klingon “Worf” in Star Trek: The Next Generation, has joined twitter. Dorn’s Twitter handle is a play on his association with the famous character, @akaWorf.

Dorn began his Twitter account by posting several pictures from the recent Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, which most of the main cast from Star Trek: The Next Generation attended. It took a while for news of Dorn’s Twitter account to travel, but once Brent Spiner, who played Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation, gave Dorn a mention to his 1.3 million followers, Dorn was quickly inundated with welcome Tweets:

Well, here he is. Big old, dumb old Worf. @akaWorf 19 hours ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

@BrentSpiner Well thank you for the warm welcome. 19 hours ago via Twitter for Mac ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

LeVar Burton, who played Geordi La Forge, was the second Star Trek: The Next Generation cast member to welcome Dorn. There haven’t been any clever welcome messages from other cast members who use Twitter, such as Jonathan Frakes or Wil Wheaton. Perhaps they are just waiting for Follow Friday.

The character of Worf began as a tactical officer on the Enterprise-D, but was quickly promoted to security chief after the ignoble death of the previous security chief, Tasha Yar. Worf later went on to become the strategic operations officer aboard Deep Space 9. Perhaps what the character is most known for, though, is being constantly rebuked for his “shoot-first” mentality:

Poor Worf. Leave a comment and let me know your favorite Worf moments.
