I was just watched the episode again. I don't know if I like the 20 G deck plate trick to incapacitate the Gorn or not. Seems odd this trick was never used before in any of the shows or movies. I guess it was the only way to stop the Gorn. I have to admit, any creature that could take the acceleration from 1 to 20 G's without becoming green paste is impressive, let alone stay upright temporarily resisting such force which is staggering. The Gorn have to be the strongest species out there.
