GorT is a science fiction fan and grew up with a variety of science fiction shows. These include some pretty bad ones like Automan, Battlestar Galactica (the bad one), V, and Space: 1999. Of course, Star Trek was a big part – aliens, phasers, space battles – lots of action wrapped around pretty simple story lines. Some were campy (“I, Mudd”) and others just plain weird (“Turnabout Intruder”), but there were stand outs like “Mirror, Mirror” (evil Spock with the beard), and “Balance of Terror” (Star Trek’s take on “The Enemy Below”). In general, though, science fiction shows since Star Trek have enjoyed limited success. In my personal opinion, the new Battlestar Galactica (into its 4th season) and Firefly are two exceptions besides the one I’ll go into depth on below. Please note, I’m limiting this scope to mostly the space/futuristic shows as opposed to Heroes, X-Files, etc. for this post.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
