They have kept contact with the [[Andorian|Andorians]], but aside from playing a role in a [[Romulan]] attempt to destabilize politics in the [[MA:Alpha Quadrant|Alpha Quadrant]] in 2154 they have played only a minor part in galactic history. A few [[Andorian|Andorians]] who have served in [[MA:Starfleet|Starfleet]] have been recorded as having some Aenar ancestry. [[Image:Gareb.jpg|thumb|''[[MA:Gareb|Gareb]] was abducted from the Aenar city in 2153, and brainwashed by [[Romulan|Romulans]].'']][[Image:Jhamel.jpg|thumb|150px|''[[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]], sister of the abductee [[MA:Ghareb|Ghareb]], aided the allied forces against the [[Romulan|Romulans]] in 2154.'']]===Timeline==={| border="1" cellpadding="2"!width="100"|Date!width="850"|Event|-|2104 || A settlement of Aenar, long since assumed to be a myth by the [[Andorian|Andorians]], is discovered beneath a dampening field in [[MA:Andoria|Andor’s]] Northern Wastes.|-|2153 || The Aenar known as [[MA:Gareb|Gareb]] is abducted by [[Romulan]] operatives.

This position was temporary, until the visitors to the Aenar city departed.'']] ==Government==The Aenar have no system of leadership, implying an [ egalitarian] regime. Whenever it is necessary, the Aenar select one of their number as a speaker to represent their collective wishes. Using [[MA:Telepathy|telepathy]] to communicate with others of their species, the speaker is quickly able to canvas the opinion of many Aenar in order to arrive at an acceptable course of action when required. In 2154 an Aenar named [[MA:Lissan|Lissan]] acted as speaker for her people in response to a communiqué from the [[Andorian]] Chancellor. ==Description==The Aenar are an [[Andorian ]] sub-species (specifically a strain of the Bish’ee species) native to the Northern Wastes of the moon [[MA:Andoria|Andor]]. Similar in appearence to [[Andorian|Andorians]], they lack skin pigment giving them a paler appearence than thier [[Andorian ]] cousins. They are also completely blind, but highly [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]]. Their population, during the mid-22nd century, consisted of only a few thousand.  [[Image:JhamelandShran.jpg|thumb|150px|''Commander [[MA:Shran|Shran]] and [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]], who would eventually become a part of the same breeding group.'']][[Image:ShranandTalla.jpg|thumb|''[[MA:Talla|Talla]], an [[Andorian]]/Aenar hybrid, with her father, [[MA:Shran|Shran]].'']]
The Aenar are physiologically very similar to the [[Andorian|Andorians]], with two antennae sprouting from their heads, although the antennae of the Aenar have small indentations in the funnel shaped tips. The Aenar are completely blind and have no skin or hair pigment, resulting in a pale white appearance (similar to [[human ]] albinos). On average they stand between 1.7 and 2.2 metres tall, and are roughly of the same build as the average [[human]]. Their metabolism is high, a trait that has been evolved to aid their survival in the sub-freezing temperatures of the planet’s polar ice-cap. Their blood is cobalt-based. The most distinctive trait of the Aenar, however, are their highly evolved [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic ]] abilities. An Aenar is capable of reading minds and of psychically [[MA:Telepathy|telepathically]] projecting itself to other [[MA:Humanoid|humanoids]]. They use [[MA:Telepathy|telepathy ]] to communicate amongst themselves. Being that they are a subspecies of [[Andorian]], therefore actually a member of the same species, they are completely genetically compatible with [[Andorian|Andorians ]], allowing for the birth of hybrid offspring. Such hybrids often retain the strongest abilities of their genetic donors, as the offspring of the breeding group that contained [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel ]], [[MA:Shran|Shran]], Shenar, and Vishri produced [[MA:Talla|Talla]], who retained both [[MA:Telepathy|telepathy]] and the ability to see.                       ==Psychology==The Aenar are a private and pacifistic people. Their [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]] abilities are considerable, but they have a strict tenet that forbids them from reading the thoughts and minds of others without express permission. On meeting Commander [[MA:Shran|Shran had ]] in 2154, [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]] immediately apologized for having sensed the loss of his partner, [[MA:Talas|Talas]], despite having done so unintentionally due to [[MA:Shran|Shran’s]] tumultuous emotional state.The Aenar are strong-willed, and will often adhere to their ideals of pacifism in the face of danger, despite the potential harm it may cause to them. They deplore violence, and it was this sentiment that caused [[MA:Lissan|Lissan]] to question the actions of [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]] when she decided to become involved with the allied forces led by [[MA:Jonathan Archer|Jonathan Archer]] to save her brother from the [[Romulan|Romulans]] in 2154. Aside from being telepathically contacted by his sister, it was the realization of the number of people for whose deaths he was responsible that gave [[MA:Gareb|Gareb]] the strength to resist his conditioning and command the [[MA:Romulan drone-ship|drone-ships]] he was controlling to destroy each other. He did so even knowing that it would lead to his execution.In contrast to the [[Andorian|Andorians’]] somewhat passionate mentality, the Aenar enjoy more subtle forms of music, and are more receptive to emotions and sentiments that may be considered weak by outsiders. ==Mythology==The Aenar themselves form a childpart of [[Andorian]] mythology, Tallaas they were believed not to exist until their discovery beneath the Northern Wastes of the Issa ice cap.
[[Image:AenarCity.jpg|thumb|''The Aenar of city, built below ground in the 22nd century lived [[Andorian]] Northern Wastes.'']]The Aenar civilization is built in an underground compound on Andoriaexpansive system of caverns beneath the Issan ice cap. Circular pod-like modules are attached to rock supports to provide dwellings for the Aenar people, along with facilities such as hospitals, shielded libraries and other public services. Access to the service is gained through a system of tunnels that have deliberately been made confusing to navigate. This is to prevent unwanted discovery by a dampening fieldoutsiders. The Aenar have no leaderbeen known to deliberately mask the senses of those who are trying to find them, but will appoint a de facto leader or speaker if a situation desires it. Aenar have a strict law trying to leave the compound against reading the minds will of other people without prior consentthe Aenar. They have a strictly pacifist ideology, and deplore violenceThis is achieved by using [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]] projections.
[[Image:AenarHair.jpg|thumb|''An example of the traditional Aenar braid.'']][[Image:AenarVeil.jpg|thumb|150px|''[[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]] wearing the traditional Aenar veil.'']] ==HistoryCulture & Customs==The Due to their reclusive behaviour very little is known of Aenar culture. However, from what outsiders have managed to learn it has been proven that the Aenar were long are a benevolent species. While they prefer not to be disturbed by people from outside their settlement they will offer help to those who need it. Their ideals of non-violence and pacifism are very rarely broken.Reading an individual’s thoughts without permission is considered a myth in Andorian societyviolation. But around 2104Accidental occurences are often resolved with an apology, but a prolonged or regular series of incidents (while very rare) incurs expulsion from the Aenar settlement – the Andorians discovered only solution that removes the problem without resorting to violence. While the Aenar living do not follow the [[Andorian]] clan system, many of them choose to devote their life to the study of science or medicine. Aenar ''[ zhen]'' and ''[ shen]'' often wear a white translucent veil that covers the lower half of their faces. Their hair is often worn long, and tied in braids behind their heads. White is the Northern Wastes favoured colour of Andoria. Since thenAenar garments, despite their inability to see the colours of the fabrics they have maintained diplomatic contact with the Andorian governmentproduce.
In 2154[[MA:Ice Bore|Ice Bore]] worms commonly reside in the icy expanses of the Issa cap. As such, they often travel through the Aenar became involved in interstellar affairs when one individualsettlement. While such creatures are dangerous due to their need to generate heat through and internal chemical reaction, Gareb, was kidnapped by they pose no threat to the Romulan Star EmpireAenar who are able to sense their presence [[MA:Telepathy|telepathically]]. Using telepresenceChildren are often known to pursue swarms of [[MA:Ice Bore|Ice Bores]], tracking them with their [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]] senses and attempting to track them through the labyrinthine tunnels around the Romulans used Gareb to remotely pilot an experimental drone shipcity.
With [[Image:IceBores.jpg|thumb|150px|''[[MA:Ice Bores|Ice Bores]] are harvested by the Aenar due to their ability to produce heat through an internal chemical reaction.'']]==Economy==[[MA:Ice Bore|Ice Bores]] are often harvested from around the help Aenar city, as they are useful for a number of Gareb's sister Jhamelscientific and engineering-related purposes. Aside from this, the Enterprise was Aenar tend not to trade with the outside world. Their [ egalitarian] culture leaves them with no need for currency or trade, as they are able to disrupt and destroy the drone shipexist in a self-supportive state.
'''Encounter log''': A member ==Technology==The Aenar share the same level of this species was kidnapped by Romulans to control a drone Warbird remotely in 2154. (technological capability as the [[ma:ENTAndorian|ENTAndorians]]: ", as they have access to advances made by the [[ma:The Aenar|The AenarAndorian]]") government. In the past, the Aenar developed technology independently from their blue-skinned cousins, and were able to use a large dampening field to shield their city from detection. They were also recorded as having developed dermal regeneration technology.
{{MAContent}}==Federation Intelligence Files==The Aenar are not widely known across the galaxy. They are somewhat of an [[Andorian]] internal affair. As the [[Andorian]] species is reportedly in decline, it is reasonable to assume that this is also true of the Aenar, whose numbers were already limited on their discovery. Should the [[Andorian|Andorians]] find a way to solve this crisis, it would most likely come into Aenar possession as well.
