The Than are green bug-life humanoid life-forms that appear in the Andromeda television series. In the opening episode, one loyal member of the crew who sat in the chair to steer the Andromeda Ascendant was a Than. The Than officer was killed during Gaheris Rhade's attack on the bridge.
In Double Helix, the Ascendant intervenes in a space battle between the Than and the Neitzschean clan hiding in an asteroid. Dylan Hunt provides protection for the Than whilst Dylan tries to make peace with the Nietzscean.
