Since their appearance in Star Trek: The Original Series, the Andorians have been a mainstay of Star Trek mythology, while the Aenar is a more recent race that is cloaked in considerable mystery. The Aenar, who have made numerous appearances in Star Trek, is distantly related to the Andorians.
The first appeared in Journey to Babel, episode 10 of season 2. It continues to follow the Enterprise crew just after the ship is attacked while carrying galactic ambassadors to something like a conference held on the planet Babel, according to the novel by D. C. Fontana. The episode became well-known for introducing Amanda Grayson Miss Jane Wyatt with Sarek, and Spock’s parent Mark Leonard.
It also represented the first appearance in the series of Spock’s childhood and of I-Chaya, his lovable but fanged pet sehlat.
In aspects of intrigue, deceit, and one of the series’ more complex plots, the Andorians mostly in the program are only as significant as their connection to the main plot. They have two antennas along either end of their foreheads, blue skin, and white hair to distinguish them from other races.
They are classified as a warrior race with just a propensity for militarism and violent tendencies. They aren’t the kind that would be found in a world of leisure like Risa, certainly not solely for fun. The Aenar, who share a planet with the Andorians, also have antennae that are situated identically.
But that is the extent of their commonalities. So who exactly are these Andorian relatives?
The Aenar are normally born blind, have telepathic powers, and seem to have pale white skin rather than the common blue. Despite this, little is understood about them since they haven’t appeared in many Star Trek-related projects.
They haven’t received much attention beyond the Enterprise and Strange New Worlds. Amazingly, there is even any folklore or interest surrounding them. Even when it appears like the story is constantly forgetting about them, you can count on the Trekkies to maintain their presence.
However, the enthusiasm of the fans for this race means that more material is written about them.
Further engrossing those who are interested in learning more about this specific group of extraterrestrial creatures. Due to this love, Strange New Worlds finally added a person that nobody anticipated, not to mention the character himself, and as a result, made Trek history.
The real-life actor who plays Hemmer in Star Trek:
Strange New Worlds, Bruce Horak, spoke with Christine Dinh of StarTrek.com about the character’s motivations. Hemmer’s Aenarian ancestry was a topic Horak covered in great detail, sarcastically stating that they truly noticed better than everyone else” about that same character’s blindness and telepathy. The actor continues,
The Aenar is described as:
The Aenar are thought of as a calm and even mythological counterpart to their warlike distant relatives, the Andorians, despite sharing all the homeland and their tendency toward solitude. Of fact, many viewers were already aware of this from another contentious series.
There aren’t many Star Trek shows that don’t have a sizable fan base. It’s a massive series with numerous live-action and animated films, books, television shows, and even comic book adaptations of everyone’s favorite space policemen.
Star Trek: Enterprise is another option. It’s challenging to track down fans who liked the show, and it’s nearly impossible to locate anyone who even remembers it existed. However, it became the first series to broaden fans’ comprehension of the Aenar.
