Gosis' species were a humanoid species who inhabited a pre-warp planet in the 22nd century. First Starfleet contact was made by Enterprise NX-01 officers: namely, Captain Jonathan Archer, Lieutenant Malcolm Reed, and Ensign Hoshi Sato, in 2152. (ENT: "The Communicator")
This species' physiology was particularly different from that of Humans. The differences were deeper than just outward facial ridges and spots. Each member of Gosis' species had only one kidney, rather than two, and had four more thoracic vertebrae than a typical Human had. Members of Gosis' species were also absent a mass which they had difficulty accounting for in a Human body. Gosis' species had blood that was neither red nor contained iron. Moreover, iron was a toxic element to their species.
By the 2150s, their race was divided into at least two "major" political nation states, one of which was called "the Alliance." In 2152, Gosis' faction believed – based on propaganda – that war with the Alliance was inevitable. The war would have been based, in part, upon "ancestral claims" by the Alliance on Gosis' faction's capital city. That same year, Temec, a doctor, compared a scan of Human physiology to their own, discovering the anatomical differences between the two species.

The government of at least the area inhabited by General Gosis appeared to be in civilian hands, as evidenced by the attendance of the Enterprise away team at a political rally held by a "Chancellor Kultarey". However, the influence, on their society, of the military was strong.
In the 2150s, the technological level of the planet seemed to be on a rough par with mid and/or late 20th century Earth, although they hadn't yet "split the atom". They possessed reliable artificial illumination, a knowledge of computers, familiarity with telecommunication, methods of observing internal organs, ways to photograph objects in planetary orbit, automatic projectile weapons, automobiles, trains, and jet aircraft.
Reed and Sato were impressed with the aesthetics of the architecture of the city they visited. Orbital scans of the city, which were taken by Enterprise, revealed a dense developmental pattern. Functionally, the architecture was of sufficient design to accommodate a high population density.
