Now it’s a brand new day, and the Gorn are the featured villains in the new Trek game; and every week we’re going to dig into the widening Gorn culture that will soon give the lizard kings their own hissssstory. Below a look at a new caste of Gorn introduced in the upcoming game — a caste that may have worked a summer job at Jurassic Park?
Initiates are the “ground troops” for the Gorn. They are the front-line fodder of the Gorn Army, and each troop is commanded by a Gorn lieutenant. In the hierarchy of the Gorn, the Initiates are in the lower class and follow orders. Their weapon is an automatic ballistic rifle called the Ravager. Relentless and ruthless, Initiates advance on two or three legs, but at their full height would be more than six feet. They are fighters and think of little else, and if they consider their own mortality, it doesn’t seem to slow them down. Like they say: Here today, Gorn tomorrow.
