Star Trek actor Michael Dorn turns sixty on Sunday. To celebrate his birthday, we look back to see what became of him and other stars who boldly went where no actors had gone before...
Then: Dorn played Lieutenant Worf, the stern Klingon Starfleet officer, who appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and in subsequent films.
Where is he now? Dorn's voice has actually grown deeper from years of playing the booming Worf, so since departing the Star Trek universe his most prominent work has been voice-overs for videogames and cartoons, including Family Guy, I Am Weasel and Kim Possible. On screen, Dorn's been limited to cameo appearances in shows such as Without a Trace, Heroes and several made-for-TV films. However, it's been rumoured that he's developing a new spin-off sci-fi TV series about his Klingon character, that would see him reprise his most famous role.
and lets not forget that Rodenberry started a social revolution-----
the crew comprised of a black female, a japanese officer and a russian officer on the bridge of the enterprise. Plus that famous kiss when Shatner kisses Nicols onscreen, a first in televison and done at the time of the civil rights movement.
Rodenberry, far ahead of his time.
And many of the gadgets on Star Trek would inspire those to create them in real life including the cell phone, the modern day hospital bed with monitors, work towards developing new energy sources and warp drive and transporter technology.
Oh and for you in the US-------Captain Kirk was from Montreal, not Iowa!! lol
79 years old.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have married in total secret, but they wouldn't be the first celebrities who have pulled off such a feat.
