If I could have just one thing changed from Star Charts, it would be: move Andor further away from Earth than Procyon!
Why? Are we obscuring your view of Venus?
Because if Earth had colonized a planet nearly 20 light-years away decades earlier (Terra Nova), it's implausible that they would've known nothing about an advanced starfaring civilization around an even closer star -- a star even closer than Vulcan's.
It's a fair point about Procyon. Epsilon Indii wouldn't have been much of an improvement either.

I do wonder at how much political - and other - "steering" the Vulcan government could have really done about keeping Earth vessels away from Andorian holdings, regardless of the identity of Andor's homestar.
