It was later revealed that the attacks precipitating this conflict were inflicted by masquerading Romulan starships, and Ambassador Gral and Andorian Imperial Guard Commander Hravishran th'Zoarhi of the warship Kumari later joined in United Earth Starfleet Captain Jonathan Archer's first multilateral military operation between United Earth, the Confederacy of Vulcan, the Andorian Empire, and Tellar in order to root out the Romulan ships.

Gora bim Gral was later a key Tellarite emissary at United Earth Prime Minister Nathan Samuels' negotiations to forge the Coalition of Planets, a mutual defense alliance that later helped lead to the formation of the United Federation of Planets.

In late 2155, Gral remained on Earth and represented Tellar on the Coalition Security Council. He was outraged by Vulcan's refusal to participate in the Earth-Romulan War, but later came to understand the decision. Eventually, he and Ambassador Thoris of Andor were forced to announce that their worlds would be making the same decision. In order to help Earth in its war, both Gral and Thoris shared highly classified information with Earth's scientists. (ENT - The Romulan War novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)
