(21:04:28) LtJGAlexisWright: Sorry I late
(21:05:14) VAdmBlackthorne: S'alright, looks like we won't be doing much anyway!
(21:05:55) LtJGAlexisWright: Where IS everyone?
(21:06:20) VAdmBlackthorne: Trick-or-treating, I guess
(21:06:29) LtJGAlexisWright: Okay, so I have a question
(21:06:33) VAdmBlackthorne: Shore
(21:06:45) LtJGAlexisWright: What is considered canon for the purposes of this sim?
(21:06:56) VAdmBlackthorne: In terms of?
(21:07:42) LtJGAlexisWright: There's a whole bunch of specific stuff about Andorians that seems to have been cumulatively agreed upon by the rp/fic community
(21:08:07) LtJGAlexisWright: but that doesn't seem to have actually been detailed in the series/movies
(21:08:09) VAdmBlackthorne: That's probably fine, but any specifics you'd lieke to bring up?
(21:08:51) LtJGAlexisWright: How about having some Aenar ancestry to enable some tinge of telepathy?
(21:09:22) VAdmBlackthorne: I've never seen anything about telepathy in Andorians
(21:09:50) LtJGAlexisWright: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Aenar
(21:10:12) LtJGAlexisWright: it's a subrace that's blind and telepathic and genetically compatible with regular Andorians
(21:10:20) VAdmBlackthorne: Sure, that's fine
(21:11:47) LtJGAlexisWright: But they apparently went extinct in the 24th century, so I was thinking a quarter Aenar at best
(21:12:56) LtJGAlexisWright: or some century near there.
(21:13:29) VAdmBlackthorne: 1/4 or 1/8th I'd say
(21:13:36) LtJGAlexisWright: There's also some thing that I think is non-canon that says that Andorians come in 4 gender flavors and it requires a bonded quad to reproduce.
(21:15:22) LtJGAlexisWright: Which I think is complicated and obnoxious but will roll with if that's how you want to call it
(21:15:58) VAdmBlackthorne: I've never heard of that either.
(21:16:02) VAdmBlackthorne: Seems unnecessary.
(21:16:11) LtJGAlexisWright: Excellent
(21:16:41) LtJGAlexisWright: And is an Andorian lifespan comparable to humans? Nothing I can find really specifies
(21:17:19) VAdmBlackthorne: Probably.
(21:17:36) VAdmBlackthorne: If memory-alpha doesn't say, assume so.
(21:18:03) LtJGAlexisWright: So is memory-alpha a reliable source of truth if I have more questions like these?
(21:18:33) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, it's pretty good.
(21:18:51) VAdmBlackthorne: If you run across anything way out there, run it by me.
(21:19:00) LtJGAlexisWright: Okay, roger that ^_^
(21:19:13) LtJGAlexisWright: I guess have a happy rest of your halloween then
(21:20:42) LtJGAlexisWright: Seeya next week!
