Re: What would a half-Andorian, half-Vulcan child look like?

There is nothing wrong with hybrid aliens and I think it's great that Trek has shown that kind of diversity among its non-Human characters. The overwhelming majority of races in the Star Trek Universe are humanoid--and that includes Vulcans, Klingons, Andorians, etc.,--so compatibility issues should be few and far between, with most probably overcome through science, IMO.

With an Andorian-Vulcan child, I think it's an issue of which genetic traits would be the most dominant. With Spock, his Vulcan half dominated his physical appearance, so he looked like a full-blooded Vulcan to the majority of Humans (maybe only Vulcans could see a slight difference). Something similar might be the case for a Andorian-Vulcan hybrid in which the child would resemble more one species than the other.

I'm more inclined to think that a Andorian-Vulcan may just look like an Andorian, but with pointed ears myself...
