Re: Endless list of Treklit trivia

During his time as First Officer of the heavy cruiser USS El Dorado, Kirk served under a legendary Andorian captain, Prince Fiawol, who was also Subarch of Trexlor. (Note that FIAWOL is an acronym, ie. he is named for the science fiction fans' catchphrase, "Fandom is a way of life".)

The crew of this ship represented an experimental mix of many races (predating USS Titan) and was 23 percent Andorian, according to a book entitled Starship Crewmen Under Stress by Dr David Marano [according to the chapter "Kirk" in Star Trek II Biographies by William Rotsler, Wanderer, 1982].
