II" canon references to the Gorn are extremely scarce.)
That is possibly the wonkiest explanation for the Gorn I have ever heard. I mean, they're giant awesome space godzillas. Do they even need an explanation in the first place?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
