WASHINGTON – Calling all Trekkies.
A grassroots movement with the hashtag #WeWantWorf is urging “Star Trek” fans to send baskets of mini-muffins to CBS executives with the attached note: “We Want Worf.”
The so-called “Million Mini-Muffin Movement” hopes to convince CBS to green-light the new TV series, “Captain Worf,” created by “Trek” alumnus Michael Dorn about his beloved character Worf.
Dorn has been trying to get the TV series into production for the last several years.
Worf has spent more hours on screen than any other character in the history of the franchise, yet hasn’t been seen in 13 years.
All of the unopened boxes of mini-muffins will be donated to local food banks in keeping with the vision of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry: “In the future there will be no hunger, there will be no greed and all of the children will know how to read.”
