There is no way for me to disagree with you more. Even the name "Worf." Like a silly pet. And his sissy son. Blech.
That's all writing stuff. TNG Worf is mostly really badly written, but Dorn manages to make it all seem like one guy.
And I think if we're talking about the distinction between every Star Trek in between the original and the new one, I don't think "the names are sillier" is really true.
His son, on the other hand, I would agree is symptomatic of the general problem with TNG. I like the show more than you do, but it is definitely the major reason that 'Star Trek' evolved toward the dead end that it had reached pre-Abrams. What's weird to me is that, for me, the first movie also hits a lot of the same bad notes, but I know you like that one. That may just be an age thing, though, since I think your age seeing the first movie in theaters would've been about my age the first time I saw Data.
This scene always makes me think of my experience re-watching TNG reruns as an adult, because quite a few times, a concept I remembered from a kid would show up, and I'd be excited, and then the episode would be like this... and then, like this, Worf would provide some salvage. (Seriously, out of context this clip contains virtually everything that the show does wrong within two minutes; only an appearance by Wesley is missing.)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x012BnKWi3g
