I think the confusion here results from different gaming systems.  The
Gorn ships look like flying bricks; the FASA Orion pirates look like
graceful ships (I always thought the Blockade Runner looked more like a
pleasure yacht).  Conversely, in SFB, the Orions are the ones with the
brick like ships, and the Gorns have the more rounded (multiple saucer)

Hope this helps,
