Life & Relationships
Though unusual in the Federation, Gorn Security operated as bodyguards for their captains and the highest ranking officer had the honor of protecting the Commanding Officer of the vessel. This is something Nugra has enforced on his own accord believing it is his duty to protect her no matter the cost.
William Tindall had become Nugra's mentee after Tindall's demotion to Ensign. Nugra wanted to turn him into the best security officer in the Fleet, but both have butted heads. Tindall has a sense of humor and Nugra is infamous for having none. In the end, Tindall was re-instated and they became good friends.
At first, Nugra found Doctor Kaji to be rather annoying and always asking questions she shouldn't, but the Rodulan doctor wormed her way into his heart and he considers her a friend...though he won't ever say it out loud. Over the years that he has served with her and his long leave from Starfleet has shown him that he has fallen in love with the woman, but is unsure how to proceed.
Meeting aboard the holodeck ship USS Centris, Nugra saw a lot of potential in her. She scored well and something about the young Antosian struck him. Deciding to invest in her career, the Gorn followed her career offering advice and being present and both her promotion to Lieutenant Commander and Captain. Since then they have become extremely good friends.
Selene came from a future where ninety percent of the galaxy had died. Haunted by what The Hunger did and swearing never to let it happen in this galaxy, she and Nugra had much in common. Working together to stop a gate from opening, the two discovered that the bonds she had developed as Sundassa Faranster were still strong and their friendship did not wane.
It was strange for him to have both of the women as a friend but their distinct personalities convinced him they were two separate people, both inseparable from him.
Though space and time have kept them apart, they have been close friends since meeting aboard the USS Apollo-A for Sundassa Faranfey's promotion party. The young Trill had impressed Nugra with not only her bravery to talk to him but the amount of questions she had. Since then, they have talked to each other over subspace with Nugra giving her a Vss'Kot dagger in honor of her command of the USS Constitution-B and her gift of jestral tea.
- Nugra received the Princess' Ruby in 2367 for winning the Imperial Vss'Nok competition. Rose to stardom among the Imperial Gorn.
- Finding that his long lost friend Megan Parker was still alive after being thought dead.
- Getting command of the USS Victory, his first love.
- Saving his crew from certain death at the hands of a powerful alien entity.
- Failure to protect Captain Jordan Hurne when he mysteriously vanished from the USS Victory. He feels the failure to this day. The loss haunts him and the Gorn holds himself personally responsible for the failure.
- Nugra was a horrible father to his daughter Iria, turning her into a killing machine in the battle of the singularity.
Gorns have a tradition of not having a true last name though they add their father's name to their first when identifying themselves for ceremonial purposes. The Tk' prefix in Gorn means "descended from".
- Moong Tk'Srovik was a starship structural engineer working at the Ss'Varnon Imperial Shipyards who spent his life focusing on the retrofit of the old Gorn warships into more advanced warships. He was instrumental also in fixing major systems issues when attempting to meld LCARS type technology into the new era ships. Moong is still working at the main shipyards under the new Gorn Alliance and is a point of contention with his son as he became loyal to the new Alliance.
- Marga was a biologist who gave up her career to raise her three children. A stay at home mother who continues to live on Tau Lacerte III, the Tk'Moong Manor was a rich estate thanks to the money earned by her husband. At the loss of her Son Morg, Nugra in Federation territory as a traitor, she keeps her daughter Seev close to home.
Morg was the oldest brother of the Tk'Moong family who found himself part of a radical political cell that turned his attention to terroristic activities. He came to Nugra one night telling of a plot to assassinate the assembly leader. Turning his back on the party, Morg and Nugra fought his way through the enemy and warned the government. Morg was banished from the Confederation and he joined the Federation and served aboard the USS Victory. In the long run, Morg was murdered by an Orion Assassin after saving the ship from a genetic virus.
Seev was the youngest of the siblings and remained at home instead of traveling about like her brothers. She has continued to live at home with a little adventure which suits her. She was poisoned once by a Vkk'Nnn bite setup by the Orion assassin Loki that killed her brother later. She hates Orions since then.
- Iria was a young Myverian girl that was found by Nugra in the middle of the savage war of the singularity. Nugra adopted her as his war child making her a rightful heir to the Nugra name.
- Ndrassa was a Gorn female who was born under the protection of the Dragon Priests of the Gorn Confederation. It was discovered that she was fathered with Crown Princess Vsh'Ta of the Imperial family before the civil war brought her life to an end. She had left the Confederation to seek protection under Nugra in the Federation as going home would be impossible.
- Full Article: Nugra Personal History
Nugra's career in the Gorn Confederation was filled before he considered joining Star Fleet. This section details his accomplishments.
While fighting for the Gorn Confederation against the Alliance, Nugra participated in the battle of the singularity. Two fleets got caught in the orbit of a quantum locked planet where they found themselves sealed away from one year on the outside. The rescue fleet arrived but found that 204 years had passed on the inside and the fleets suffered 95% causalities. Nugra is technically only 43 years old, but his time in the singularity has aged him the extra years. This is not seen as a problem as Gorns live up to 900 to 1000 years. If anything, it made him older and wiser.
For all intent and purpose, Nugra expected to die the day he faced the alien parasite and he distinctly felt his mind shattered and vanish. What he did not expect was to wake up two months later on a biobed at Starfleet Medical. It seemed that the entity that was living in his brain for so many years held him together and repaired the damage over the two months he was out.
The world thought he was dead and instead of informing others of the contrary, Starfleet Intelligence asked him to act as an agent for them to help catch a Sicarian cell before returning to the world of the living. Nugra, duty bound and knowing how dangerous Sicarius was, agreed and spent 10 months as a dilithium ore freighter crew until he was able to expose the enemy agents.
After finishing up his assignment, he was awarded Distinguished Service Ribbon and re-assigned to the Gamma Quadrant as the Federation Ambassador.

Nugra's office is usually least decorated, but everything lined up in neat and perfect formation. When in his office with no major work to do, he'll go around and arrange the chairs so they are perfectly aligned with others and measure at the proper angle from other furniture in the room.
His discovery of the vacuum cleaner has lead to many hours sweeping every part of his office for that perfect clean.
Purchased in 2391 to set up a place to retire to one day, the Gedesh Estate is a producer of Kuvo grapes and Laudean blue wine. Nugra does not get much of a time to visit it, but it is something he wants to do more often if he ever gets the chance.
- Dave: Dave is a German shepherd originally owned by William Tindall until his departure from Starfleet. Holding an official rank of Lieutenant JG, Dave has become the personal bodyguard of the massive Gorn, following him wherever he goes.
As is Gorn tradition, Security Officers usually make some contacts with the underworld to be able to utilize their job better. Nugra is no exception as certain things can be overlooked for the well being of the Embassy and ship.
