Alternate surface and system details

The Andorian system (Andorii: Kay'va system) is an inhabited star system in the Andor Sector, containing the moon Andoria, homeworld of the Andorians. (ENT episodes: "The Andorian Incident", "Kir'Shara"; DS9 episode: "Tears of the Prophets")


The system was attacked in 2154 by the Vulcan High Command. (ENT episode: "Kir'Shara")

The system was again attacked during the Earth-Romulan War in 2159, this time by Romulan forces. (ENT - The Romulan War novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)

By the 24th century an array of subspace relay stations connected the system to Rigel. (TNG episode: "Conspiracy")

During the Dominion War the Andorian system was considered by Starfleet to be of comparable strategic importance to Berengaria, Vulcan, and Earth. (DS9 episode: "Tears of the Prophets")

All inhabited planets were heavily damaged in the Borg Invasion of 2381. (ST novels: Lost Souls, A Singular Destiny)


The Andorian system was located in the Beta Quadrant, close to the Vulcan system. (ENT episode: "Kir'Shara"; ST reference: Star Charts)

Different sources have placed the Andorian system in multiple locations:

System makeupEdit

The Andorian system's primary star was referred to as Kuy'va in Andorii. (Last Unicorn RPG module: The Andorians: Among the Clans)

The moon Andoria, homeworld of the Andorians, orbited a gas giant, Andor, located in this system. It was the only body in the system to have native life. (ENT episode: "Kir'Shara"; Last Unicorn RPG module: The Andorians: Among the Clans)

Another planet, Alrond, had an Andorian colony. The settlement on Alrond was destroyed in the 2381 Borg invasion. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code; ST novels: Lost Souls, A Singular Destiny)

Non-canon sources give multiple descriptions of the Andorian system, some of which conflict with the canon appearances in ENT episodes: "Kir'Shara", "The Aenar".

Last Unicorn RPG module: The Andorians: Among the Clans gives the system's makeup as follows:

ST reference: The Worlds of the Federation lists the system as the "Andor system". There, Andoria is listed as being the eighth planet in a nine-planet system.

ST reference: Star Charts, which uses ENT as source material, erroneously designates Andoria as Procyon VIII, ignoring its being a moon (it would more correctly be designated Procyon VIIIa, or possibly by other letters if Andor has additional moons).
