Gomtuu (Species Unknown)

Warp capable: Yes, natural
Classification: Living vessel/spaceship

Gomtuu also called Tin Man is the last of a unique alien species of living vessels which survived symbiotically with its crew. The alien communicated telepathically with it’s crew and most likely others of it’s species. Gomtuu being the last of it’s kind and having no surviving crew was extremely lonely and chose to orbit a star which was about to go supernova. The depressed Gomtuu found the Betazoid super-telepath, Tam Elbrun who convinced him not to commit suicide. He join it as a lone crewmember, thus completing one another’s existence.

Like a traditional starship, Gomtuu possessed a warp drive, transporter capability, and was fully equipped to defend itself. However, much of its technology was beyond that known to Federation science. Its interior cavity consisted of a series of chambers and corridors with gravity and atmosphere to support carbon-based lifeforms. Its amorphous interior was also capable of growing furniture and equipment from its walls and floors.

The Gorn are a warp-capable reptilian species. The Gorn’s first contact with the Federation took place in 2267, when the Gorn attacked a Federation colony on Cestus III. The Gorn saw the strike as a preemptive move, since they regarded the Cestus system as part of their territory. The USS Enterprise pursued a Gorn starship from Cestus III into a previously unexplored region of the galaxy. There, both starships were immobilized by the Metrons, who transported James T. Kirk and the Gorn captain to a planet’s surface, where the two captains were instructed to settle their differences in a “contest… of ingenuity against ingenuity, brute strength against brute strength.” Although the Gorn captain was physically stronger than Kirk, Kirk was able to construct a makeshift cannon out of materials on the planet’s surface and defeat the Gorn. When Kirk showed mercy to his defeated opponent, the Metrons sent both captains back to their respective ships and transported the Enterprise out of the area.

Telepathic abilities: None
Federation Status: Member
First Encountered: DS9: “Homefront”
Distinctive Features: pronounced, deeply furrowed brow, a bovine snout and two slightly curving horns

Grazerites evolved from herbivorous herd animals and loathe violence and confrontation. Grazerites are hard to anger, and seldom show it openly even if furious. Grazerites prefer consensus to conflict, and are distressed by others’ unhappiness. Extremely patient and highly resistant to boredom, Grazerites excel at tasks requiring a long attention span and close detail work.

The Grazerites had a position on the Federation Council in the late 24th century held by Jaresh-Inyo until he was elected Federation President.
