Gral appears in the Pocket DS9 novel The Big Game, in which he attempts to cheat at a game while on the planet Risa by using a receiver inserted into his lobes. However, as Krax attempts to guide him through the game, a nearby Human overhears the transmission which had been implanted incorrectly, thus foiling Gral's plan.
