Andor, also known as Andoria, is the homeworld of the Andorian people and capital world of the Andorian Empire, one of the founding Member States of the United Federation of Planets. Andoria is a moon circling a gas giant located in the Beta Quadrant. The name of the moon in the Andorian language is Fesoan, and the capital city of the moon is Laikan.
