Andor (or Andoria), an icy moon orbiting a ringed gas giant in the fictional Star Trek universe. It is the homeworld of a blue-skinned, antennae-bearing species called Andorians. Most Andorian cities are built underground to take advantage of geothermal warmth. The Andorians share their homeworld with a small sub-species called the Aenar, light blue/white-skinned, telepathic beings that resemble Andorians.
Prior to the formation of the United Federation of Planets, it was the capitol world of the Andorian Empire. The semi-canon book identifies Andor's home star as Procyon VIII (Alpha Canis Minoris) in the Beta Quadrant. Andor is in close proximity to Betazed, Earth, and Vulcan.
Native lifeforms include a horse-like animal called a 'zabathu;' the 'Andorian bull,' noted for stomping around when angry; the 'Andorian amoeba,' which reproduces through symbiogenesis, and ice-burrowing worms known for generating heat.
