A creature from an Earth entertainment that looks like a Gorkon.

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).
