An indirect but perfectly reasonable inference. Remember, we are dealing with a TV show and not historical documentation. The end point is that the arrangement in question (Gorn serving in Starfleet and not exclusively with the KDF) can be justified along many fronts, including show-established cannon which has been a major crux of the arguments being made against it, excluding the myriad "fed fanboys suck" entries of course.
