Skin PigmentationEdit

Should we add that this solves the "green andorian problem" that appeared in the episode with Lal?

  • I don't think we should. They said "Andorian Female" in that episode, not hybrid. The real reason was of course makeup techniques. Shras was almost as pale as an Aenar and Thelin was grey... --Dalen 07:30, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
Given that we've seen differences in skin colors among members of other species (i.e. Tuvok, Sirol, and Jaro's aide) and also given the differences in skin colors among our own speices (even among members of the same ethnicity), is it not possible that not all Andorians are the same color?
It's also possible that after their relatively recent contact with Andorians (early 22nd century), Andorians and Aenar began intermarrying (we have at least one example of that already), so that by the mid-24th century, Andorians with Aenar ancestry (and thus not quite as blue as they once were) became commonplace.

Her skin isn't just pale though, it's green rather than blue. It's not a far-out theory to assume that young Andorians are green and their blue skin-tone develops, perhaps during puberty. Had Talla not been half-Aenar, she would have been a more saturated green, as we saw demonstrated by the child-android, Lal. Without any research or advanced thinking, this was the conclusion I drew from the episode. Green because she's young, pale because she's Aenar. - Hayter 08:39, 5 April 2006 (PDT)

Talla's eyesight Edit

Because she's only half Aenar, could we assume that Talla has eyesight because of that? – Jono R 11:58, 4 June 2009 (UTC)


Any news if full telepathy is inherited from the Aenar parent? Like how Deanna Troi is only empathic and can't read non-Betazoid thoughts? --vorik111 04:58, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Until Talla or another Andorian/Aenar hybrid is shown again and confirms it either way, we won't have any idea. -- 21:21, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Removed Edit

  • It is highly likely that Talla was named for Lieutenant Talas, whom Shran was romantically involved with before her death in 2154.

I think my spouse would kill me if she knew I named my child after a former lover. This is clearly terribly rationalized speculation. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 12:45, November 15, 2017 (UTC)
