This might account for their aggression, given that it might have taken them longer to develop urban societies without agriculture.

Honeybee wrote:But it was fun to think about Andorian sociology and how quads would form. In the story, Talas does not like Shran's other wife - and so resists marrying him, even though she wouldn't mind being married to him.
I would imagine once one pairs off with one person, that would limit ones options because a new partner would have to be married to both of you. It's hard enough to find a comparable spouse for one person - two or three must be very difficult.

I wish I could find the info on the original fandom concepts -- maybe I was imagining that?
