My thoughts as well. We KDF have a fairly well rounded selection of vessels.

It always takes time to get me into a proper state of mind since I don't try to think how I'd build a Gorn ship but how the Gorn would design a ship and I'll see if I can come up with some kind of destroyer design that doesn't look too much like the ships I'm making for the TOS mod.
And with a tiny bit of luck it won't be totally ignored like the last Gorn ships I proposed.
Keep in mind that the Novel written on STO "Needs of the Many" sheds alot of light on Gorn infrastructure and how they have speciliazed Gorn for different jobs/tasks. The baseball team they fielded was very interesting, not the slow Gorn of Kirks era.
