- There aren't enough Andorians in the game!

Humanoid civilization from the planet Andoria (Procyon VIII).  (Prophet Motive -DS9).  Andorians somtimes describe themselves as a passionate, violent people.  Their appearance is characterized by beautiful blue skin and a pair of antennae on their heads.  Members of the United Federation of Planets, an Andorian delegation journeyed to the Babel Conference of 2267 aboard the Starship Enterprise.  The Andorian contingent include Ambassador Shras and staff member Thelev.  (Journey to Babel -TOS).  Andorian marriages generally require groups of four people.  (Data's Day -TNG).  Andorians were also seen in Whom Gods Destroy -TOS, in the Federaion Council chambers in Star Trek IV, and were glimpsed in Captain's Holiday -TNG and The Offspring -TNG.  Renegade Andorians were mentioned in The Survivors -TNG.

Planet: Andoria. Humanoid Federation members are blue-skinned in appearance and have bilateral antennae and characteristically white hair. Andorians are self-described as a violent and warlike species. No members of this Federation race were aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D when Data's offspring, Lal, was "born". Lal rejected an Andorian female as one of four final choices for a racial type, instead opting to become a human female. Apparently, according to Data on stardate 43657.0, Andorians engage in group marriages of four as a rule. However, most of what is known about this race is scattered. Andorian renegades, in the Triangular system , it is said once embarrassed a Starfleet admiral's supposed search when they hid their ship by dismantling it. An Andorian was present at Risa when Captain Picard vacationed there on stardate 43745.2, and also an Andorian group bid for Tellurian spices offered by Kivas Fajo on stardate 43872.2. This Federation member-race was the subject of some kind of gender-swapping joke by Quark that Morn was slow to catch; the punchline was "and the Andorian says, 'Your brother? I thought it was your wife!'" Andor is among the many planets providing a registry home to numerous ships that use Deep Space Nine. Their variety of silk is prized for its softness. Andorian jewelry is highly collectible and is not usually available on Deep Space Nine -- one of Quark's would-be expanded sales items by inter-station monitor. Chirurgeon Ghee P'trell, an Andorian, was nominated for the Carrington Award in 2371.
