Thanks for putting this up!
You're very welcome!

Yeah, the original Gorn in "Arena" looked more-or-less like what people expected from special effects of the day, but the Gorn that showed up in ENT: "In a Mirror Darkly" was laughed of the screen by an audience used to the likes of "Jurassic Park," "Aliens" and "The Lord of the Rings." Trying to make real characters out of them in DS9 era would have been basically impossible.
