Why is it so hard for folks to accept that there are a lot of other people who like the things that they don't?

The TNG crew cameos were all shot after the first six episodes were in the can.

Which in and of itself doesn't indicate anything other than perhaps the logistics of coordinating actor schedules and the economies of maximizing the production budget by shooting all their required scenes in one sitting (including different episodes).   

The writers have stated that at least one appearance was added after production started because they realized the episode would work better with a particular TNG character there.   It's an interesting admission to make at this stage of the game.   No matter what they do they are going to be criticized -- too much or too little callbacks to TNG is going to upset someone somewhere so perhaps they decided to begin the criticism deflection process early.   For all we know this is the often-denied Worf cameo they said wasn't happening.

Worf continued on for years after the cancellation of Next Generation and appeared in all of the TNG films even after he'd joined DS9. Plus he's in one episode of Webster. 

He's reportedly appeared on-screen more times than any other character in Trek history, period. He's had a number of breaks actually.

I do feel bad for Sulu, however.

No surprise to long time members of the forum, but I hate Worf. 

There.  I said it.  Out loud even!

That said?  Really looking forward to PICARD.

I find Worf and TNG-era Klingons immediately tiresome and cliched. Whatta buncha idiots. An entire civilization built around the concept of becoming cannon fodder. Whee. So honorable. 

That said, I did just listen to the latest episode of the podcast "Inglorious Treksperts" and Michael Dorn is a whole lot more interesting than the guy he played.

Re: Sulu as a captain, yes, he is, and has been since TWOK, although any mention of his status as such was squelched until "Undiscovered Country." After his rank was finally shown onscreen (effectively removing him from the film's main action) he was permitted to reprise his role as Captain one time and one time only in a Voyager episode that was little more than a reshoot of his scenes from the film. Yuck. (shivers) Voyager. Ptui!

As hard as Dorn has campaigned for a solo series or some sort of relaunch for his character, Takei has been at it longer with far less screen time to show for it.

Added a spoiler warning and a Season 1 tag to the thread title.

Oh...and Worf still sucks!

What emoticon did Brian Miller post? All I'm seeing is a tiny box. I'm imagining it as a frowny face with a tongue sticking out, but is it?
