Undated & unsigned comment[edit]

The Taurus Bulba article says he is voiced by Tim Curry. Anyone explain the contradiction?

Hauntings Across America[edit]

Just saw this show on CBS and Michael Dorn Narrated, should this be noted? HordeFTL (talk) 22:01, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

personal life[edit]

Dated Terry Farrel from Deepspace 9.

Should be mentioned. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.243.228.109 (talk) 21:03, 3 January 2008 (UTC)


Charles Conrad?[edit]

"so he introduced Michael to an agent who then hooked him up with Charles Conrad to study acting for six months."

Who is this? IMDB didn't give anything obvious, and I don't think this reference is refering to the former astronaut. -- Kaszeta 16:15, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)

The Charles Conrad being referenced is apparently an acting coach. Terri Garr was one of his students. I see a lot of online references to him and his studio, but no links to anything useful. This is the best I could find: [1] Al 00:06, 15 September 2005 (UTC)
Don't link randomly to an article with the same title if the linked article is irrelevant. You're not doing anyone any favors. Canonblack 15:36, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Pictures[edit]

The first thing you see when you enter this article is Worf's picutre. then, if you scroll down a bit, you see a picture of Michael Dorn, Without the Worf makeup. should'nt that be the other way around? -- Captain Proton, 28 aug 2005

The first no-makeup image was not public domain, but there is a public domain one in the german article. I don't know how to get it into the english WP. Maybe someone else could do that. -- Imladros 09:39, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
That picture makes him look like Sling Blade! "Got me a bat'leth, mm hm!" --M.Neko 05:59, 3 August 2007 (UTC)


height[edit]

How tall is Michael Dorn? I only ask out of curiosity

Mentioned on Colbert Report[edit]

Feb 07 2008 - black chinese new year history month minute - Is he Chinese American? Should be be honored? link to video on comedy central website? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Seifried (talkcontribs) 10:07, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

It wasn't him, it was the character Worf who was mentioned. --81.158.148.64 (talk) 17:17, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

number of Star Trek movies[edit]

It says he has been in 5 movies as Worf, and additionally mentions his role as Colonel Worf in STVI. Isn't it only 4 TNG movies + STVI? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Appleshampooid (talkcontribs) 20:38, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

I would add that he appeared in 101 episoded of DS9 - so I will make that change. This is based of the Movie web site IDb. CaptKpsja (talk) 14:57, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Race[edit]

If Dorn African-American?

Filmography[edit]

Shouldn'tthere be one, of eveyr show and movie he's been in and iwll be in? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.165.163.105 (talk) 01:08, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Heroes - I believe he also played the president in the last episode of season two, the end 'preview' of the next chapter whilst in the limo with Nathan. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.79.3.250 (talk) 13:30, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

It's already in there. ~QuasiAbstract {talk/contrib} 15:19, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

he also voiced Kalibek in Justice League Unlimited —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.43.65.75 (talk) 18:12, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Adventures From The Book Of Virtues - this is a TV series in which he was in one episode, but it's listed here as a film? All other info in the line is correct though. Don't know how to change it myself. 80.2.73.85 (talk) 09:24, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

I made the change for you. Beyond My Ken (talk) 18:25, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Er, I think he also appeared in a certain number of Star Trek TNG episodes? Maybe one or two DS9 as well? Shouldn't this be listed in his TV appearances? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.89.104.2 (talk) 23:41, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Lazy eye?[edit]

In the latest episode of Heroes (An Invisible Thread), it looks like Dorn's eyes are looking in different directions when he is looking at Sylar in the limo. Does anyone know if he has been diagnosed as having a lazy eye? – PeeJay 15:25, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

yet another star trek fix[edit]

It says that it was never mentioned on screen that Col Worf is Lt Worf's grandfather. I may be wrong, but I have been backed up by someone else, I recall Worf and Dax discussing how his grandfather helped kirk. It's also mentioned throughout ST:TNG that his grandfather's name is Worf, and mentions some accomplishments the elder had.

So no there was no "Col Worf is my grandfather and he was the defense attorney for Kirk...", just the single DS9 refernce does say it.

I won't be editing the wiki to reflect this, as I don't feel like finding the episode or anything to back it up - but I welcome others to :D ~AeSix 72.77.197.173 (talk) 05:40, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

It's a trap straight to DVD?[edit]

In this article "It's a Trap!" is incorrectly listed as a straight-to-DVD film. It should be listed as a TV episode. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.121.128.194 (talk) 21:59, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that. Turns out there was a whole batch of TV items in the wrong table as well. MarnetteD | Talk 22:38, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
