The Aenar

Not much there.

Why are the Aenar blind?

Are they fully blind? Do their antenna give them some ability to percieve?

Why are they telepathic? Is it linked to their blindness?

IMHO, the development on the Andorians was about ther best part of ENT

They are maybe blind because they have other abilities that the Andorians don't have. =) Their antennae are the telepathic sensor points. They are fully blind though with their eyes. :)

So why don't they trip over the furniture in their ice cave homes?

And why do they have lights in their ice cave homes?

Maybe the antenna provide an echo-location sort of sense, making sure they don't knock into things?

My idea is that the Aenar at first simply were isolationists in early Andorian history, but they made adaptations to their environe,tn that caused them to lose sight, instead relying on their already keen senses given to them by their antennae to navigate through the ice caves. After the Romulan incident in 2154, they slowly reintegrated into Andorian society, keeping their own simlarities.
