I had an interesting roleplaying experience where my Saurian Captain and a Gorn Captain came together to ponder the recent events with regards to the Dominion and the Borg.

That, in conjuction with watching the featurette from the movie "Rango" about the critters of the town of Dirt, go me to wondering about the insperation and origins of both the Gorn and the Saurians.

I would think that the Saurians are small jungle lizards like Skinks, Gekos, and Chamelions.

I would think that the Gorn are more ruggest critters resembiling Monitor lizards such as the Komodo Dragon, or desert lizards such as the Horned Dragon or Gila Monster. And of course, the Veloca Raptors of the Late Cretacious Period

What do you folks think? I would love to hear the Dev's take on them as well.

The Saurians have something of a Grey alien vibe going for them - though Saurians are taller than Greys.

The Gorn in game look like Zilla from the 1998 Godzilla movie.

No, no, no! You guys got it all wrong! Clearly, it's like this:

Gorn: Panda Bear.

Saurian: Kitty Cat.
