How is worf in this movie? Isn't he from years in the future in next generation?

The character in question is actually an ancestor of Worf's, like his grandfather or something. And as demonstrated by his attempt to save Kirk and McCoy, getting their butts kicked apparently runs in their family.

Yeah, he plays 'Col Worf' or something. Just to drive the point to the audience, his makeup forehead ridges are totally different from TNG Worf.

Between the fourth and fifth seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Dorn played Colonel Worf in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Although the relationship was not stated on screen, the filmmakers' intention was that the Star Trek VI character was the grandfather of the Next Generation character.

Hope that clears it all up.

Quick Star Trek question. How is Spock alive in the Unification episode of Star Trek Next Generation? Should not he have died of old age like the rest of the original crew?

If he were human, yeah. But Vulcans have easily twice the lifespan that we do.

That's a key running storyline in Deep Space Nine

seasons 1-3 - still allies with the Federation
season 4 - Tensions surrounding the alpha quadrant races (federation, klingons, romulans, etc) with the Dominion leads to a falling out between the Federation and Klingons, and then all out war (Worf gets introduced to the cast of Deep Space Nine because of this plotline)
season 5 - A truce/cease fire is called between the Federation and Klingons
season 6-7 - Klingons and Federations are allies again as they fight together (along with the Romulans) against the Dominion and their new allies The Cardassians)

Anyone else think it is silly how in next generation the phasors are mini vacumecleaners rather than their former gun look?

So I just started watching the original series. What is up with the change in crew from episode 1 to 2? Pike is the captain in episode 1 then instantly 2 kirk is and some of the crew has changed. Do they fill the gaps later?

Episode 1 was the pilot. They changed uniforms, adjusted the cast, and did some other stuff.
