U.S. Marine Corporal Gorman was assigned to Icarus Base and was present when the base was attacked and had to be evacuated. He was among the survivors who ended up on the Ancients' exploration vessel Destiny. He was a member of one of the first away teams sent to a planet visited by the Destiny, under the command of 2nd Lt. Vanessa James. Later, Col. Everett Young assigned Gorman to investigate the Destiny's weapons capabilities. While on his way to the 'gate room to unload ice for the water supply, Gorman encountered the "dust devil" entities from the Destiny's first off-world mission and, feeling threatened, shot at them. They retaliated by attacking him, the effect being like thousands of tiny razors. Unfortunately, his wounds were too severe to be effectively treated and he died a few hours later.
