Andorian biology

Andorians have several variations, which have been seen on TOS (Star Trek: The Original Series), the Star Trek movies, live-action footage in Interplay's Starfleet Academy video game, and on the prequel series Star Trek: Enterprise. As originally portrayed, Andorians were pale blue, thin and tall in stature, deceptively soft-spoken and possibly lisping. They sported Prince Valiant-like white hair and large bony antennae on the crown of the skull. Changes in theatrical makeup technique in the Star Trek movies introduced variations in Andorian antennae size and placement -- and also added ears. The starship Enterprise as it appeared on Star Trek Star Trek is a culturally significant science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry in the 1960s. ...

Though hailing from an iceworld, Andorians are extraordinarily tolerant of warmer climes, losing only ten percent of body weight over a few days of surviving environments near the boiling point of water, for instance.

A 1970s technical fiction book, The Starfleet Medical Manual, made the further assertion explaining that the antennae of Andorians indicated that the species were the only known semi-insectoid race in Federation territory. The antennae functioned as both "quadriscopic" vision receptors and for focused hearing. However, none of these points were ever shown on a Star Trek film or series, although they were repeated in the 1980s book Worlds of the Federation. Furthermore, the assertion that they were the only semi-insectoid race seems untrue based on the later series Enterprise as the Xindi had an insectoid race and then there's the Tholians (although it could be argued these were a wholly-insectoid race, not a semi-insectoid race, and so may have been excluded).
