Gorn is a being made up of the collective mind of the MME. It is filled with hatred for humanity and a strong desire to prove that the MME have surpassed humans. Directly controlling the MME forces from its heavily defended citadel, it desires to take its war against humanity to every outpost in the solar system until none remain alive. It speaks of the glorious future that awaits when mechanical life comes into its own and claims the solar system. Although a machine, Gorn is not devoid of emotional attachments and has a special desire to see Sandy suffer because she is the daughter of the man who uncovered the alien ruins on the Moon. When Sandy confronts Gorn at the heart of its citadel it is forced to consider ideas it cannot handle and self destructs rather than deal with the consequences.
