If you added some reference to that, it might up the Trekiness of your story.
Nice catch! I have to admit I did my story when I was really, really tired. And I'm really bad about proofreading my own writing.

And yeah, I did consider adding in the 'proper' (albeit soft canon) gender name for the andorian, but I wanted to make it understandable to the average reader who may not know the various genders of the andorian people, and might have been confused. Although if I do something similar in the future, I might phrase it a bit better to include both the Trek term and equate it with a real world term.
