I saw this player in Earth Space Dock, and sent him a few tells asking how but he didn't reply back.

Edit- Saw another standing AFK in the tutorial. The only two I have seen yet.

Fascinating.

I've seen increasing reports of similar anomalies... I wonder if it's an extended April Fool's thing.

hmm several possibities

1.) Its a Dev testing out the requested Federation Gorn (unlikely though, theres a Test Server)
2.) They added a Gorn head for Aliens (i didnt check)
3.) a Dev did someone a favor by allowing them to be Gorn
4.) theres a hidden way to unlock Gorn
5.) somebody hacked the Character Creator, like manipulating it so it sends chosen race Gorn to the server,
something you cant select, but may not be blocked by the server
or chosing Alien and manipulating it so it sets skin type and features of Gorn

I'm inclined to believe they found some way to get the Alien character gen to give them the Gorn head...my reasoning being that I don't believe the Gorn that are playable on the Klink side can wear boots/shoes, and he is wearing them.

I could be wrong though, and then I'd really like to know how he did it, too! lol

Interesting...
When I tried a gorn on the klingon side, there was an option for boots or barefoot/claw.
I wonder how this was done.
Edit: Wait, I may have answered my own question.
Make a gorn on the klingon side, save character.
Make federation characterr, load saved Gorn.
I'll try it now.
Double Edit: Nope, tried a few different species. Can't load klingon saved characters onto Federation player creator.
Must be some other way.

Someone figured out how to trade Gorn BO between KDF and Fed players. Its the same as the mess with Fed players figuring out how to buy KDF ships and vice versa. Some smart and organized folks out there, its amazing what you can exploit if you have the man power to experiment, I had some ideas you could do this, but all my friends lost interest in this game way too early to ever get around to this.

Guys, just look at the body. Gorn from the Klingon campaign tend to have rather thick bodies. I've tried making a very skinny Gorn, but nowhere near the skinny in this pic. I'm guessing this is a PS.

AND the hands. Don't Gorn have clawed fingers or something?
