Lissan, a female Aenar


Gareb, a male Aenar

The Aenar are an Andorian subspecies, humanoid in nature. Their race comes from the Northern Wastes of Andoria, their numbers in the 22nd century in the mere thousands.

Their name is pronounced "EEH-nar".

Anatomy and physiologyEdit

As subspecies of the Andorians, the Aenar are anatomically and physiologically similar. The Aenar's differences from the Andorians include:

  • Aenar have no pigmentation in their skin or hair, giving them a pale or even white complexion;
  • They are telepathic and communicate amongst themselves in this manner;
  • Their antennae have indentations in the funnel-shaped tips. (ENT: "The Aenar")

Andorians and Aenar are able to reproduce. Aenar/Andorian hybrids normally sport skin with a greenish-tinge. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages...")


Aenar underground city

An Aenar city

As pacifists, the Aenar avoided others by living underground in a city surrounded by a dampening field and avoid telepathic contact with others unless consent is given. When required, a de facto speaker will lead or talk on their behalf; otherwise, the Aenar do not typically have a leader.


Andorian myths surrounded the Aenar until 2104 when first official contact was made. Diplomatic ties with the Andorians remained open and transparent.

In 2154, the Romulan Star Empire kidnapped an Aenar, Gareb, to remotely pilot a Romulan drone-ship. Gareb's sister Jhamel helped Enterprise destroy the ship. (ENT: "United", "The Aenar")

As per Federation policy, it is assumed when the Andorians became part of the Federation, the Aenar did as well.
