Welcome to the thoughts that wash up on the sandy beaches on my mind. Paddling is encouraged.. but watch out for the sharks.
Andorians were the most interesting-looking TOS species, I think! ENT developed them as 'cold warriors'...an empire from a frozen planet.
I remember them in ST:OS as pseudo-Soviets almost. They certainly had a sneaky, could you trust them really, vibe about them. I liked them.... [grin]
Andorians Star Fleet. I love the inclusiveness!
were they the ones that only lived about 15 years?
The Andorians? They were part of the Federation. Are you thinking about the Romulans or Klingons? (The klingons were space-Soviets, the Romulans were space-Chinese...at least according to what I've heard.)
@Mudpuddle: were they the ones that only lived about 15 years?The only short-lived Trek species I can think off off hand are the Ocampa, from Voyager
yes, that was or who i was thinking of... tx....
From Wikipedia:Andorians are a fictional race of humanoid extraterrestrials in the American science fiction franchise Star Trek. They were created by writer D. C. Fontana. Within the Star Trek narrative, they are native to the icy Class M moon Andoria (also called Andor), which orbits a blue, ringed gas giant. Distinctive traits of Andorians include their blue skin, a pair of cranial antennae, and white hair.Andorians first appeared in the 1968 Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Journey to Babel", and have been seen or mentioned in episodes of subsequent series in the Star Trek franchise. They were indicated to be a vital, important member of the United Federation of Planets in the 1997 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "In the Cards", but did not gain considerable exposure until the 2001-2005 series Star Trek: Enterprise, on which they were used as recurring characters, most notably in the person of Thy'lek Shran, a starship commander who maintained a sometimes adversarial and begrudging friendship with Enterprise Captain Jonathan Archer. The series revealed more about Andorian ships, the home world Andoria, and the culture and history of Andorians and their subspecies, the Aenar. The 2004 episode "Zero Hour" established that Andorians were one of the four founding members of the United Federation of Planets.
Ah, okay...so TOS-era they were more of a mystery. One did appear in the animated series, though...at least in an alt-universe where Spock was dead.
