'Star Trek VI' has 'Next Generation' tie

July 11, 1991|By Los Angeles Times

"Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" includes a crew member from the syndicated TV series "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Sort of.

Michael Dorn, who plays the Klingon Lt. Worf in "Next Generation," will play the lieutenant's Klingon grandfather in the movie.

The lid is closed tightly onto the "Star Trek VI" set, so it's difficult to be sure how Dorn's Klingon will fit into the story. "I can't really get into that," publicist Bob Hoffman said. "But it does resolve one of the longstanding questions of the series for 20 years."
