Gee no wonder they lost their war with the Klingons, apparently they only make science ships for their fleet!
Come on people there is a reason that the Klingon faction has no science ships, it's because the races making up the KDF have no interest in science! Especially not the Gorn!
Anyone else agree with me?
I think your interpretation of the Gorn might be a bit narrow minded. The Gorn are an intelligent civilized species more interested in self defense than aggressive conquest. "Fleet Support" vessels make sense for the Gorn, as they do for almost any civilized faction in the Galaxy.
Having said that, I'm a little annoyed that science vessels are the ONLY Gorn ships we see. Nausicaans being restricted to "escorts" I can sort of see, the "Nausicaan Navy" has never been a factor and the "Nausicaan Union" has never been a galactic player, but the Gorn Hegemony fought the Klingons to a stand still for years, which means a balanced, versatile navy capable of meeting the Klingons head on. It certainly means that they'll need more than Fleet Support ships.
