Non-canon sources?Edit

I've heard that the Aenar have long been referenced in Star Trek publications, but have only now become canon. If so, could a reference of such be added as background information? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.131.199.150 (talk).

Definitly, do you know which non-canon sources? - AJHalliwell 02:20, 29 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Re-use of set pieces?Edit

The Aenar are said to be extremely secretive, however they buy furnitures from the "regular andorians" : the door in the Aenar city (ENT: "The Aenar") is extractly the same one seen in Shran's Ship (ENT:Kir'Shara) ;-) --rami The preceding unsigned comment was added by 83.198.195.212 (talk).

I wouldn't read too much into the expedient reuse of set pieces. 66.53.75.235 01:21, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Skin tone?Edit

Quote from the article: "A hybrid Aenar/Andorian individual, such as Talla, will have a greenish skin tone." Is there any source to that? It is known that Andorians childs have greenish skins and become blue during puberty, that's why I thought Talla has a green tone, because of her age. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 92.200.73.50 (talk).

I don't think it was said in canon that Andorian children were green. Is that from a novel or something? We don't consider those canon, but it might still be interesting to note in the background regarding possible reasons for Talla being green. -- Capricorn (talk) 12:43, February 1, 2015 (UTC)
I removed the last bit. Skin tones in hybrids isn't an important detail.
This hybrid, Talla, had a greenish skin tone.

RemovedEdit

AntennaeEdit

sprouting from their heads

Seems insulting to both Andorians and Aenar. Compvox (talk) 09:51, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

GenomeEdit

, which was reflected in their genome

Redundant. If is part of their physiology it's part of their genome. Compvox (talk) 09:55, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

Thelin bg noteEdit

In TAS: "Yesteryear", Spock's replacement aboard the USS Enterprise in an alternate timeline was an Andorian named Thelin, who had pale colored skin similar to the Aenar. Of course, this was an animation error (one of the producers was colorblind; the TAS: "Yesteryear" script did specify that Thelin was to have blue skin). Retroactively speaking, it is possible to extrapolate that Thelin was of Aenar descent. Of course, since Mr. Spock was able to correct the timeline, it is also possible that Thelin never existed in the restored timeline.

As much as I like the idea, it's speculation. These issues are mentioned in the more appropriate Thelin and Yesteryear articles in greater detail. Also Thelin is categorized as Andorian and not Unceartain Andorian/Aenar. Compvox (talk) 10:19, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

I disagree with cutting Thelin completely. Coincidence or not, the fact that Thelin looks, not somewhat similar, but exactly like a known race is hard to ignore. I've acted bold and put in a new note, that does not say "The guy from yesteryear might be an Aenar" but merely briefly notes that "Yesteryear includes a character with the same look", without commenting further. I hope that's acceptable enough. If anyone thinks it is not, feel of course free to remove again and/or discuss further... -- Capricorn (talk) 18:47, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

No problems with it for me. I think the rewording is a much better bg note. Compvox (talk) 21:46, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

Blindness Edit

Regarding the recent edit, where does the idea come from that not all Aenar are completely blind? I don't remember any evidence of that at all. -- Capricorn (talk) 18:52, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Neither do I. In fact, the script clearly states that all the Aenar are blind, so that was evidently the intention. --Defiant (talk) 13:47, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
I've changed the article to reflect this finding. --Defiant (talk) 14:35, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
