[[WMG: The Sphere-Builders would become the Prophets of ''Deep Space Nine'']]
Both the Sphere-Builders and the Prophets are aliens living in a trans-dimensional realm beyond normal space and time, a realm that's depicted onscreen with all-encompassing white colour. Since the Sphere-Builders appear to be humanoids and want to conquer the physical universe, it seems likely they originally lived this universe in the but were somehow trapped in the trans-dimensional realm ages ago, and now wish to return to their original home (see the above [=WMG=] for one possible explanation of their origin). However, after their attempt to conquer the universe was thwarted and their connection to it cut, they decided to try and properly adapt to their new home. Eventually they would evolve to live fully beyond space and time, losing their physical bodies in the process, and becoming the beings Bajorans referred to as the Prophets. At some point a random wormhole opened up a new connection between the trans-dimensional realm and the physical universe, but at that point they had forgotten they'd ever existed outside their realm, and had no wish to leave it. The only exception to this was a subgroup among them called the Pah-Wraiths, who still held on to some subconscious Sphere-Builder mentality, and who were therefore more interested in manipulating the physical universe and its inhabitants.

Having evolved on an ice planet, the ability to detect temperature would be a useful skill, and the Andorian eyesight could incorporate infrared as part of its visible spectrum. It's been canonically established that Vulcan blood is colder than human blood. Therefore, to the Andorians, it's possible that the Vulcans appear to be of a completely different color, whereas humans - regardless of ethnicity - always appear as the color they call "pink" (translation conventions may apply).

This is why no one afterward seemed to remember Archer, his Enterprise, or how he encountered the Ferengi, the Borg, and the Temporal Cold war.

[[WMG: The Andorians' eyesight works different from humans']]
This is to explain why Shran constantly refers to humans, and not Vulcans, as "pink skins", in a way that strongly suggests that pink skin is a very characteristic trait of all humans and no other species (which makes no sense from our point of view).

First, let me make it clear that this is in no way a political WMG and I am in no way suggesting the US Government resembles the Terran Empire in real life. I'm simply referencing a line in "In a Mirror, Darkly" where Archer referred to the Terran Empire as having endured "for centuries". This suggests they must have been around on Earth since at latest the 1950s. It quite reasonable to suggest that they weren't originally called the Terran Empire. It's also notable that the Enterprise opening credits for that episode show footage from the first two world wars (though not the third) implying they still happened in this universe. The moon landing meanwhile involved a Terran Flag, not a US flag (and a more futuristic EV suit). This suggests (or rather leads one to guess, given this is a WMG) that in this universe during/after World War II the USA (who in this universe were probably closer philosophically to the [=NAZIs=]) ultimately went onto world domination and formed the Terran Empire (realising the calling themselves the United States of America didn't make much sense when their members weren't states and weren't based in America). The extended time spent in expansion slowed the space race but advanced technological development, hence explaining why the moon landing involved the more advanced EV suit and Terran Flag. This may also have allowed them to avoid World War III and put them in a more stable position for technological development, explaining their ability to develop a single Vulcan ship with no support or allies into a War Fleet superior to their Prime Universe counterparts.

[[WMG: All the events of "Enterprise" happened, but Starfleet destroyed and covered up all records and evidence of Captain Archer, his ship and his mission, due to one embarrassment too many. Specifically...]]

... Shortly before the tragic death of his chief engineer, Archer declared, "If anything happens to Trip, I'LL be the one watering their trees!" After the events of the series finale, the crushed Captain was found outside Starfleet Headquarters, quite inebriated, and finally making good on his threat, on Boothby's rose bushes (Boothby's VERY old you know). That was the last straw, and Archer was not only stripped of his rank and booted out of Starfleet, but his entire embarrassing mission was erased from Starfleet history. The punishment for bringing up any Enterprise before Kirk's is a demotion to "Redshirt" and an assignment to a new away mission.

This is why no one afterward seemed to remember Archer, his Enterprise, or how he encountered the Ferengi, the Borg, and the Temporal Cold war.

* Enterprise takes place during the time frame of TNG: "Pegasus" (see ENT: "These Are The Voyages..." where this is established. The time is 2370 (stardate 47457.1, per the Captain's Log, via Memory Alpha.) A young engineer with an interest in holo-programming creates a historical simulation for his friend Reg Barclay, noted holo-addict, but he hasn't quite got the technique down, especially historical verisimilitude (see the continuity issues referenced above in this WMG entry. The engineer eventually refines and improves his skills as a holo-programmer, and four years later (stardate 51721.3, approximately, per Memory Alpha's stardate on DS9: "In The Pale Moonlight", the nearest show to the character's debut in DS9: "His Way"), he goes on to create Vic Fontaine. Which means the entirety of Enterprise was just Felix's beta test.

* Just to add to this, and because I love analysing obscure lines as if the show had all been plotted out intentionally, in the TNG episode "Up the Long Ladder" Data referred to the "chaos of the early 22nd century". They apparently wouldn't have been surprised if a colony ship was launched with no records. That colony ship was launched in 2123. For comparison, Archer was born in 2112 and his father was shown working on the Warp 5 engine in 2121 (the Enterprise being launched by 2151). So evidently the Earth society, which the Vulcans wanted to hold back, is also one which humanity itself would later consider to have been in chaos.

* While several victims found on the station are from species to whom humanity hadn't even been introduced yet (including a Cardassian, for one), none of them are Breen. Why not? They built it, that's why; of course they would know about the station's "hidden fee" and would leave a back door to allow themselves to use it free of charge. They probably use it to take samples so they can study the psychology and physiology of other species and tailor their diplomacy and weapons accordingly. Only a few species with an [[GenreSavvy innate distrust]] for bargains that seem too good to be true (the Ferengi, for one) probably ever managed to avoid losing a crew member to the station, and even so it probably still has some exquisitely detailed information on them from its sophisticated scanners.

They share a similar appearance (not identical but similar enough to what variation we've seen within single species). If the Ancient Humanoids still existed, it's certainly likely they'd have the level of technology (such as easy time travel) the Sphere-Builders showed. It's possible that the Ancient Humanoids (possibly trying to extend their lives or become energy beings) got trapped as trans-dimensional beings outside of our universe no longer able to exist here.
