When it was announced that Michael Dorn would join the cast of DS9 with the show’s fourth-season premier, fan reaction was mixed. Was this just a gimmick to win over the TNG crowd and boost the show? Well, maybe. But as it turned out, DS9 was where Worf really belonged, and the character blossomed as part of the Station’s ensemble. But how did he get there?

In this episode of The Orb, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing continue their four-part series focused on Worf’s journey from The Next Generation to Deep Space Nine. Connecting the dots that were never actually meant to be connected, we find moments that were key to preparing Worf for his assignment to DS9. In Part 3, we discuss Worf’s role in Star Trek: Insurrection, how he keeps his hair so lustrous, the best place to buy anti-gorch gel, Gilbert and Sullivan, and why you’d better triple-check your alarm clock. We also figure out just where on the timeline Insurrection falls, and discuss how Worf’s relationship with Jadzia and his experience fighting ground battles during the Dominion War both tie into the film.
