Gorkon is a planet known to Troy.
When watching a 1955 theatrical film This Island Earth on 1980's Earth with fellow Warrior Dillon and the Super Scouts, Troy recalls that he "hasn't seen anything like [the mutant alien on the screen] since the planet Gorkon". This view is echoed by Wellington, who mentions that the bug-eyed alien in the Earth movie looks like the Gorkons (The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I).
- Gorkon is the name of the Klingon Chancellor played by David Warner in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
- Presumably, since Troy was a young child during the Fall of the Twelve Colonies and presumably never set foot off the Colonies before then, it can be assumed that Gorkon was a planet visited by the Galactican Fleet en route to Earth. This is fully supported by Wellington's quip while watching the movie.
