Yep, that was an Andorrian.

It works great if most or all of the Humans such an alien interacts with are Caucasians, but sort of falls apart when said alien meets Humans of African descent. Then again, most Star Trek aliens, particularly Old Series, were remarkably uniform in appearance. It wasn't until much later we saw racial variations in the major races. The one time in TOS we saw "racial variations" it was a plot anvil ("Let That Be Your Last Battlefield")
