Avaranthi sh'Rothress was an Andorian shen (female), a politician of the mid-22nd century. She was one of the first people to serve the office of Federation President after the United Federation of Planets was founded in 2161. Before being elected President, she represented her homeworld of Andoria on the Federation Council, where she had a number of historically significant debates with President Haroun al-Rashid about the necessary qualifications and procedures for potential Members seeking to join the Federation. In 2180, one of the private shuttles of the President of the United Federation of Planets is named after her. (novel: Star Trek: Articles of the Federation)
- It is entirely possible that Avaranthi sh'Rothress served multiple terms preceding those of Archer. One conjectural timeline would give the first president one term, Haroun al-Rashid two terms, T'Maran one term, sh'Rothress two terms (one ending a year early to allow for Archer to assume the office in a year that would otherwise not be an election year), Archer two terms, and Sardix two terms.
