Once I started thinking about it, it became obvious to me that I wanted to at least put it out there, which I have, and the response has been pretty amazing. We’ve been contacted by different individuals–I can’t say who and all that–about wanting to come on board and be part of this. ”
What seems to be a stumbling block would be releasing a show in the "old" universe where the movies are currently running in the "new" universe.

I am cautiously optimistic. Also, I can not believe TNG was 25 years ago.

Michael Dorn thinks Worf hasn't been a fully realized character? Worf and Data are probably the two most developed and explored characters in Next Generation. Plus Worf got four years more exploration on Deep Space Nine. Practically the entire 24th century Klingon mythology revolved around Worf in some form or another. Sheesh. Actors.

Michael Dorn needs a check.
That said, I would definitely watch this.

Honestly, if it gets even a few of the TNG actors back, I am all for it. They deserved better than Nemesis to go out on. Worf was a fully realized character on the show, but in the movies? No, his best film and all of the TNG guys was First Contact. Every other movie, they are background characters for Data and Picard.
