The Gorn have performed a big half in “Unusual New Worlds,” serving because the sequence’ most revisited villains. The Gorn have attacked the usS. Enterprise from area, have implanted eggs contained in the abdomens of sure members of the Enterprise crew, and, within the finale of the present’s second season, are poised to destroy a human colony and eat its inhabitants. Characters speak concerning the Gorn in hushed tones, frightened of the risk they pose. As a way to keep in keeping with dialogue from the unique “Star Trek” sequence, few folks in Starfleet have really seen a Gorn up shut.
After the unique sequence episode “Enviornment, which aired in 1967, the Gorn grew to become an official a part of Trek canon. Possible due to the Gorn masks worn by the on-screen actors and stuntmen, nevertheless, Trek has been reluctant to deliver them again too usually; the Gorn would not reappear till “Star Trek: Enterprise” within the early 2000s. “Decrease Decks” may simply have had an all-Gorn episode, and there might simply be passing references to the Gorn (“Decrease Decks” is awful with deep-cut Trek references), however Kelly did not dare steal any of “Unusual New Worlds'” thunder.
In short, he merely stated, “We’d by no means do the Gorn.”
That is, one may think, a promise made after the primary season episode “Veritas,” whereby Ensign Rutherford (Eugene Cordero) recalled, by way of his cranial implant, that he as soon as stumbled right into a Gorn wedding ceremony. Upset on the interruption, the Gorn all leap out of their seats and savage Rutherford. Fortunately, he appears to have escaped together with his life intact. Past that, a passing line of dialogue, or a background element, it appears that evidently the Gorn won’t return. Kelly is politely leaving Gorn tales to the “Unusual New Worlds” writers.
