A little off topic, but do we know for certain that Gaila was an Orion? Yes, she's got green skin, but there are a lot of pink skinned lifeforms out there. It's possible that Orions are not the only green skinned species.
The novel says she is an Orion.
She was also listed on the credits list only as "Orion cadet" almost from the time Rachel Nichols' casting was announced; the name "Gaila" didn't appear until around the time the movie went into general release, iinm.
"Recently my 8 year-old cousin asked me, with a wicked twinkle in his eye, if I'd ever microwaved a banana. I'm terrified to try, but I'm sure whatever happens—splattering, abrupt, radioactive—sounds exactly like an Annie Clark guitar solo."
