In the year 2282 General Rellk ordered the Gorn troops under his command to their Gorn carriers to head out and hunt down the Humans on the unnamed planetoid. Rellk believed that the Humans had killed the Physician Thak. When the carriers had arrived at the crash site of the shuttlecraft Kepler (NCC-1864/05), Thak had been healed and convinced his people to call off the attack. (ST - Alien Spotlight comic: "Alien Spotlight: The Gorn")
The designs of the Gorn carrier were drawn by Paolo Maddaleni.
