Star Trek: The Original Series/Enterprise...Andorians

Question
How did they make the Andorian antennae move? Do you think it was remote control puppetry?

Answer
The antennae were remote controlled by nearby operator.  One of the actresses who portrayed an Andorian attended the Trek Expo a couple of years ago.  She said that even though the sound of the servos in the antennae was distracting at first, she got used to it fairly quickly and eventually didn't even notice it.  Yes, I go to Trek Expo every year....
