I liked the adult Alexander from the future, who came back to kill his earlier self better!


As others have said here, he seems to have been another spoiled, pampered kid.

how was Alexander spoiled and pampered? Worf was actually very strict with him

I second Willowtree.


Worf was downright mean if you ask me.  Lwaxana's whole reason for taking Alexander to the holosuite was to show the poor thing how to have fun because Worf was so strict.


If by spoiled you mean K'Ehleyr was raising him in a human way and didn't make him hunt and eat the heart  of a wild targ for his first birthday or something Klingon like that, then that's just silly. K'Ehleyr always struck me as someone whose mother allowed her to make her own choices when it came to which path to follow and she chose to be an Ambassador and serve in her own way. She understood Klingon ways but thought some of them were downright ridiculous.


Not wanting to be a warrior =|= to being spoiled.


Not wanting to follow your culture's traditions and go a different path =|= spoiled.


Maybe he wanted to be a scientist or a poet.

I liked that episode!  I thought it was cute that she called him her little warrior

Oh that was adorable!  I always loved how she called Worf "Mr. Woof."  Lwaxana was an ambassador and I'd bet my last bar of gold pressed latinum she knew damn well what Worf's name was, she simply did it to poke at him because he was so stodgy and it was fun to do. As an empath, she could get a very good reading on people and knew what made them tick. Lwaxana was much much smarter than anyone give her credit for.

Alexander is one of a number of people in Worf's life, with whom he had to learn flexibility.  He spent a lot of time in TNG and DS9 making baby steps toward being more open.  Interestingly, though, Worf is more broad-minded than most Klingons.  He was conservative in his Starfleet world and liberal in his Klingon world, which would be difficult for anyone.

I didn't think Alexander was a spoiled child at all. He just kind of freaked me out. Alexander looked EXACTLY like someone had shrunken Worf's body and placed his head on the small body.

that probably has to do with the fact that he was raised by humans, even though they were respectful of his Klingon heritage

>It's funny how Alexander AND Wesley

>were both despised by so much of the
fanbase, and neither actor playing them
ever became bigger stars, after STAR TREK.

None of the Star Trek cast became "bigger stars" after Star Trek. Most of them went on to direct or back to Broadway.  

And to which Alexander are you referring? There are three child Alexanders.

Nobody really became huge stars on screen, some have become quite big off screen though. Robbie McNeil, Roxann Dawson, Jonathan Frakes, Levar Burton are highly in demand directors.

Actually I don't think many of the Trek actors spent much time in front of the camera after their respective shows were over.


What about Patrick Stewart? He's made $10's Millions in the X-Men Films, Voice-Over work (animated films/television), television mini-series, etc... since TNG went off the air 19 years ago (boy do I feel old saying that).  I think he's by far the most recognizable Star Trek actor after Shatner and Nimoy.

.... Agreed! Yes, Sir Patrick Stewart
raised the bar very high for actors
in the STAR TREK franchise. And he's
a far superior actor to William Shatner,
but seeing them both together in the
GENERATIONS movie was a great idea!

Alexandar was an adorable kid. When he first came on the show he was so tiny! I wanted to pick him up and hold him.


The problem was that Worf was a lousy dad. He was overly strict and he didn't spent much father son time together. When he did it was more about what Worf wanted to do and less about what they could enjoy together. He was so strict I remember one time Alexandar said he wanted to talk with his friends and Worf roughly replied "you can talk with them in the morning!"


Alexandar only became a brat because he was often ignored by his father.

Yes, Worf was strict (like any Klingon,) but Alexander wasn't used to it because K'Ehleyr was on the other extreme - too permissive.

I thought the writing for Will Wheaton was great ... and i thought wheatons wesley crusher character was one of the most interesting characters on TNG.
