    The only thing I can think of whenever I think of the Gorn is "They show that same clip of Kirk fighting the Gorn whenever they have someone in a movie watching Star Trek!" SNW needs to shake that image out of my head!

    I hope they'll finally establish as canon ---
    --- that the Gorns' only vulnerability is to huge boulders. So the Enterprise triumphs by chucking a meteor at the Gorn ship with the tractor beam! :lol:

    In this era of Trek, it's photon-styrofoaminium, but by the end of DS9, we'll see the introduction of quantum-styrofoaminium, which will be really bad news for the bad guys.

    Still not a fan of using the Gorn. They were supposed to debut in TOS, sort of takes away from that.
    I’m sure it’ll be a fun episode.

    Meh. ENT kinda screwed that pooch in Season 4 with Archer learning about them, and I'm not talking about Mirror Archer.

    Knowing their name is one thing. Seeing them is another.

    No pun intended.

    I expect the Gorn will be cool. I don't worry much about supposed conflicts with other shows.

    Check it and see.

    Their ships can travel at Warp 8.3.

    They were an unknown species whose territory the Federation accidentally encroached upon when they set up the Cestus III colony during the course of events in “Arena”. But shit, (NX-01) Enterprise ran into the Ferengi, the Gorn, the Romulans (who cloaked), holodecks and a bunch of other stuff that they shouldn’t have.

    Fuck it… I like the Gorn and hope they go back to resembling the TOS version as opposed to the ENT version, if they even show them.
