Your answer is in the second half of the sentence. It says "Your own ships are never sent to the warp as a result of your power." This is just FFG's way of saying that the Gorgons don't paralyze themselves. Thng is, it's a completely unnecessary sentence, since Gorgon's power already says it applies only to other players. But FFG can't seem to resist adding redundancies and over-explanations until things get confusing.
Gorgon is actually one of the worst-written powers in the game; nobody's really even sure whether all the ways they changed this alien relative to the original Mayfair version were actually intended or not.
