Gorn possess only one free trait. The other 3 are racially locked in as Inferior traits. Therefore, both blue and purple Gorn are identical traitwise, having only 1 Superior trait and 3 Inferior traits. This can also happen with Efficient boffs: The game treats Efficient when generating as a Superior trait, but when attempting to reverse-evaluate a boff for its rarity once commissioned, it will be treated as an Inferior trait: Thus, it sees a boff with only one Superior trait and the rest as Inferior traits, and therefore thinks it is a blue, or worse (if the boff was blue or green).
