I can understand the rationale behind the raptor-Gorn in JJTrek game. We know the Gorn have biologically distinct castes. It could be the "infantry" caste is relatively dumb, more dromaeosaurid in appearance, and smaller than then the "warrior/leader" or "techie" castes.

I quess I would actually be okay with a toned-down version of these guys in the game to replace the "Trooper" and "Ranger" NPCs we have now (which look painfully like juvenile warriors, especially the Rangers.)
