Andor was an inhabited planet. 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)

Location Edit

In 2293, the location of Andor in the Milky Way Galaxy was labeled in the star chart The Explored Galaxy, which was on display in Captain James T. Kirk's quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-A. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, okudagram)

In 2366, in an alternate timeline, during the Federation-Klingon War, the location of Andor was labeled on a tactical situation monitor in the ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise", okudagram)

In 2367, the location of Andor was labeled on a tactical situation monitor in Captain Benjamin Maxwell's ready room on the USS Phoenix. (TNG: "The Wounded", okudagram)

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 Star Trek: Star Charts (pp. 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 the 24th century, Andor was the location of the Andorian Agricultural Ministry as well as a Federation embassy. (DS9: "The Sound of Her Voice")

Sometime before 2363, Lisa Cusak, as a junior officer, was assigned as an attaché to the Federation embassy on Andor. She met an Andorian civilian who worked at the Andorian Agricultural Ministry. The two ended up dating for six years. (DS9: "The Sound of Her Voice")

In 2364, Federation starships USS Aleo and USS White Sands were ordered to recertify the Andor/Rigel link of subspace relay stations. (TNG: "Conspiracy", okudagram)

In 2373, Kai Winn rhetorically asked Captain Benjamin Sisko if the Federation would be willing to sacrifice Andor, Vulcan, Berengaria, or even Earth to protect Bajor from the Dominion, if necessary. (DS9: "In the Cards")

In 2374, one of numerous 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")

Mirror universeEdit

In the mirror universe, Andor was a dominion of the Terran Empire by 2256, when Terran emperor Philippa Georgiou held the title Regina Andor. (DIS: "Vaulting Ambition")

Background information Edit


The Andorian 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". [1]

In Star Trek: Enterprise's season 4 DVD, writers Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens have said the establishment of Andor as a gas giant and the Andorian homeworld, Andoria, as a moon orbiting Andor was devised to help explain the contradiction of why both names "Andor" and "Andoria" have been used interchangeably. This would, however, seem to contradict Worf's claim in DS9: "Change of Heart" that Andor has mountains.

Furthermore are Michael and Denise Okuda stating, that Andor and Andoria are the same and Andor was the term used on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ("The Andorian Incident", text commentary, ENT Season 1 DVD special feature)

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.

Reference material Edit

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 24) identifies the gas giant as Andor. Both and the Star Trek Encyclopedia state that "Andor" was a name which was used interchangeably with Andoria for the Andorian homeworld. The former source does not name the gas giant.

According to the Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual and The Worlds of the Federation, Andor was the eighth planet in the Epsilon Indi system. It was called "Fesoan" by its natives. In the Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual and in Star Trek Maps, Andor was referred to as the Andorian homeworld.

According to the RPG sourcebook Planets of the UFP, Andor was the fifth planet orbiting the star Kuy'va.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts, Andor was the capital city of Andoria, which was a class M planet.

According to Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), "Andor" was an alternative name for Andoria (as was "Procyon VIIIA") but was also a J-class gas giant, of which Andoria was a moon.

Andoria, the primary of the Andorian system, was located in the Alpha Quadrant on a star chart seen in the Star Trek: Discovery episode "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad".

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.
