The Gorlan are a piscine humanoid species.
They are the greatest allies of the Terran Republic, being the first race to make contact with humanity in 2072. Over the years, they assisted the humans as they expanded throughout space, trading them the technology they needed. In 2178, the Gorlan homeworld was destroyed by the Dref, as a reward for their kindness during their expansion, they gave the Gorlan permission to settled on Sirius III.
Several young Gorlan were involved in the youth movement against John Gill.
