The Gorn are an elusive race of reptilians, proud and grim, and fiercely territorial. Any contact with this race should be conducted with the utmost caution and respect, as well as patience, for at first open diplomatic contact will be shunned. They often regard the customs and practices of other races to be backward and foolish, but are loyal to their allies and maintain lucrative trading links with races they consider as friends.
The Replicator Net on Gorn is an advanced system of global fabrication, with each assembly unit contributing to the whole. All fabricators are powered locally by geothermal inductors, enhancing efficiency and the economy by virtually eliminating the need for conventional power generation techniques.
For years the Gorn worked against the domination of Ferengi trade monopolies, before founding their own inde-pendent trade franchise. The franchise has since proved to be very lucrative indeed, particularly in weapons sales. Gaining control of the Gorn Trade Alliance would greatly enhance our economic strength.
