Andor was an inhabited planet in the Andorian system. The ringed gas giant was orbited by Andoria, the inhabited moon homeworld of the Andorian and the Aenar races. Andoria took part in talks to form a Coalition of Planets in 2155 and became a founding member of the United Federation of Planets in 2161.

By the late 24th century, this Federation world was considered to be of comparable strategic importance as Berengaria, Vulcan and even perhaps Earth. (DS9: "In the Cards"). An array of subspace relay stations linked it to Rigel. (TNG: "Conspiracy", okudagram)

The location of Andoria in the 24th century

Andor was located in a neighboring system to Vulcan, which led to a series of conflicts between the Andorian Empire and the Vulcans. In 2154, the Vulcan High Command deployed a fleet of twelve starships to Regulus, which lay just outside Andorian sensor range, preparing to attack Andoria. (ENT: "Kir'Shara") Andor was also relatively close to the Sol system, and the Andorian Empire occupied space between Babel and Tellar Prime. (ENT: "Babel One") In the 24th century, Andor was located near to the Cardassian border. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")
The Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual and Star Trek Maps place Andor in the Epsilon Indi system, identifying its moon Andoria as one of the founding worlds of the Federation.(citation needededit)
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 36 & 52; "United Federation of Planets I"), Andor was the eighth planet in the Andoria (Procyon, or Alpha Canis Minoris) system, a system located in the Beta Quadrant. Its moon Andoria was depicted as an Earth-like planet.
According to the more recent Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Andoria was the first moon in Andor's system. The gas giant Andor was the eighth planet in the Andoria (Procyon) system. The depiction of Andoria was closer to its appearance in "The Aenar".

History Edit

In 2374, one of the suggestions that Worf offered up for his honeymoon with Jadzia was a mountain climbing expedition on Andor. (DS9: "Change of Heart")

Later that year, after the Dominion invaded and conquered Betazed in 2374, they were in a position to threaten Vulcan, Andor, Tellar, and Alpha Centauri. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")

In 2375, viewscreens on Deep Space 9's promenade and replimat advertised speedy trips to "scenic Andor" on the latest warp ships. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")

Background information Edit

Andoria

The unnamed gas giant intended to represent Andor.

"an-DOOR" was the pronunciation for this planet's name from the script pronunciation guide for "In the Cards".

In Star Trek: Enterprise's season 4 DVD, writers Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens have said the establishment of the Andorian homeworld, Andoria, as a moon orbiting the gas giant Andor was devised to help explain the contradiction of why both names Andor and Andoria have been used interchangeably.

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 24) identifies the gas giant as Andor. Both StarTrek.com and the "Star Trek Encyclopedia" state that Andor was a name which was used interchangeably with Andoria for the Andorian homeworld.

According to the script of ENT: "Broken Bow", there were two Andorian moons. However, this was later changed to two Teneebian moons for the filming of the episode.

A newspaper article (It's Federation Day!) in the Picard family album created for Star Trek Generations suggests that a "Sarahd of Andor" was the Andorian representative present at the forming of the Federation in 2161, though the clipping was not seen on screen and is not considered canon.

In Star Trek Maps(citation needededit) and Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual(citation needededit), Andor was referred to as the Andorian homeworld.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 52), Andor was the name of Andoria's capital city.

According to the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Andor was both a name for the J-class gas giant and an alternate name for Andoria.

Apocrypha Edit

In Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Volume One, Thirishar ch'Thane and Prynn Tenmei note the differences between the names "Andor" and "Andoria." While Tenmei grew up thinking of ch'Thane's homeworld as "Andoria," ch'Thane grew up knowing it as "Andor." Conversely, ch'Thane grew up thinking of Tenmei's homeworld as "Terra," only to discover that Terrans call it "Earth."

In the novel Lost Souls, much of Andor was devastated by the Borg in 2381. The following year, Andor seceded from the Federation in Paths of Disharmony, although it was later readmitted as a result of the events of Star Trek: The Fall.
