Okay, any ideas why the bulk of the emoticons here are Andorans?  :D

I guess they're easier to see on the boards then other character types.

I'm guessing because ENT was still on the air when they shifted this board to ikonboard, and Andorians were quite prominent in that series, hence Andorian emotes.

I'll let BobbyP (st.com's former Art Director) speak for himself:

Again, I chose them for their wide range of emotions. A human would be boring and not very Star Trek-y.
I wanted them to be consistent so people would use them as emoticons and smileys, not a graphical florish. If I had made a wide variety of species, people would just tend to use the aliens they liked, nullifying the usage of the smileys to signify emotion.
There, I have said too much!

:whatthe:
Just to clear this issue once and for all, they were made Andorian NOT because I hate Vulcans, Klingons, Borg, or Ferengi. It's because I love consistency. Vulcans hide emotion, Klingons don't blow kisses and Borgs are stone faced. Can't have those species being all emotional! Isn't consistent with what's on screen.

originally thought of using Ferengi, but 20 pixels by 20 pixels is much too small to fit in lobes and facial expressions
Also, they only started appearing in TNG and I really wanted a species that spanned the whole gamut of shows and movies.
I take the fact that they are being discussed as a complement...at least they aren't ignored and forgotten about! ( I can't believe my longest post EVER has been about smileys! )
