The Gorns are six-to-seven-foot-tall, 350-pound, cold-blooded, egg-laying, reptilian humanoids bearing a superficial resemblance to a T-Rex or Raptor. Despite the fearsome visage, they are actually quite civilized people who run one of the few democracies in the galaxy. The Federation and Gorns met in a border incident in which two hot-headed captains shot first and faced embarrassing questions later. (A Federation corporation built an unauthorized colony outside of Federation territory. The Gorns saw a few Vulcans and thought the colonists were Romulans (with which they had fought wars for over a century). Diplomats smoothed everything over and the Gorns became the most stable ally of the Federation. The Gorn legislature’s reluctance to spend money or join the Federation’s war limited this alliance during some periods. (Note: The dinosaur-based names are Federation “reporting names” because few in the Federation could pronounce the Gorn names for them. Shown books on paleontology, the Gorns were reportedly honored and amused by the naming convention.)
When the Federation provided the Gorns with designs for its “splendid cat” light dreadnoughts (designed for raids behind enemy lines) the Gorns took the idea seriously and produced a light dreadnought that gave up the heavy plasma-R torpedo to gain more speed. This made it the fastest ship in the Gorn fleet but as a dreadnought it carried no more weapons than a battlecruiser. It could kill any enemy ship up to cruiser size, and could outrun any Romulan dreadnought other than the Shrike, which was the Romulan light dreadnought. Regardless, the ship served well during the General War, conducting several brilliant raids behind Romulan lines that unhinged entire sections of the front. Federation reporting name: Alectrosaurus.
This ship is available in a variety of materials. Ships are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources, and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.
