Further information about the Gorn can be found here.

There is some controversy about this. This information comes from the Titan / Typhon Pact novel "Seize the Fire" which contradicts several other soft-canon sources with regards to the nature of the Gorn and their culture. (It also refers to Gorn warriors as being "unwilling to compromise" which violates both on-screen canon appearances.)

This particular issue with the specialized eggs for each caste and the contributing environmental factors stems from the idea of a warrior/soldier "hatchery world" (which is central to the book's plot) which simply doesn't jive with previously established concepts of the Gorn family structure.
