Alien(s) a la Star Trek, with La'an as Ripley. Complete with never before seen redshirts.

SF in general, and Star Trek in particular, has a bad habit of portraying any intelligent alien species, no matter what their evolution and natural environment, as being capable of technology and space travel. I'm thinking of the Ba'ul and Species Ten-C from Discovery off the top of my head, but based on what we've seen in SNW, there's no way the Gorn should be a technological space-faring species.

Another thing that bothered me was Pike's presence on the mission. I get that it's pre-TOS so Starfleet still has the regulation that requires the Captain and his senior officers, as well as assorted cannon fodder, to beam into the danger, but there was nothing plot-wise here that required his presence on the mission. He was completely peripheral.
