Mirror Universe
(coexisting on another dimensional plane)

The Gorlan were the inhabitants of a planet under the control of the Terran Empire by the mid-23rd century.

James T. Kirk's first action as captain of the ISS Enterprise was to suppress the Gorlan uprising by destroying the rebels' homeworld. (TOS: "Mirror, Mirror")

According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion (2nd ed., p. 295), René Echevarria claimed that there was no intentional connection between this species and the Gorlan prayer stick.
