Trek X To Have 'A Lot Of Changes,' Says DornBy Caillan

Trek X has been touted as possibly the last hurrah for the cast of The Next Generation, and according to Michael Dorn (Worf) the film will feature a bit of a shake-up for the crew.
Speaking last weekend at the Starland 2001 convention in Denver, Colorado, Dorn shed some light on Worf's future. "Will I still be an ambassador? Yes I am, but there has been a change and we will learn about it as the movie goes on," he told the audience, according to a report at Chrissy's Sci-Fi. "I can't tell you what they are now, there are actually a lot of changes. There is a lot going on. It is interesting and I hope everyone is going to enjoy it."
Dorn was certainly enthusiastic about the film's script, written by 'Gladiator' scribe John Logan. "I've read the script, they have been doing some changes and working with it," he said. "It is a pretty good script and we are very happy with it."
The cast are currently working out their contracts for the film. "We are right in the throes of negotiating which is never pleasant but it looks like everyone is going to be involved," Dorn said. "Of course Patrick [Stewart], as we all know, will be involved. We are suppose to be filming in October."
Dorn spoke fondly about his Trek experiences, but added that he never knew when the final curtain would fall. "The movies are like eight weeks of just out of control," he said. "You are just out of control [with] these people. I'm going to miss that because we don't know if this is going to be the last one or not. There will be other Star Trek movies but it is always up in the air - 'Is this going to be our last movie or is it the next one?' We just don't know. It has been pretty interesting. It has been a nice ride."
