The Gorn are a reptilian humanoid species. The Gorn nation-state is known as the Gorn Hegemony.
History and cultureEdit
The Gorn society consists of 3 castes, the military caste, the worker caste and the caste of scientists. (Star Trek: Unity One)
Official first contact with the Federation came in 2267, under hostile circumstances, when a Gorn ship attacked a Federation colony on Cestus III. (TOS: "Arena") By the late 24th century, however, the two powers had full, amicable political relations.
- In the TOS novel: Dreadnought!, set ca. 2270, at least one Gorn had joined Starfleet. The Gorn had joined the Federation in 2285, per Orion Press continuity.
- The Tressaurians were a race of sapient reptilians who were believed to be related to the Gorn. (Starship Exeter: "The Tressaurian Intersection")
- The initial wave of attacks during the Kelvan War in the mid-2280s resulted in the near-extermination of the Gorn species, in the Orion Press continuity. (Orion Press: In Harm's Way)
