'''Melmac''' was a strange planet located in the Aldente Nebula in the [[Andromeda]] Galaxy. It was the homeworld of [[ALF]]. Residents of the planet were called [[Melmacians]] and they were characterized as being short, furry creatures who have advanced age longevity and multiple stomachs. Melmac was located six parsecs past the Hydra-Centaurus Supercluster. Melmac was very much like [[Earth]] but it had two moons, it was oddly shaped and made of [[melmac (substance)|melmac]]. Melmac had green skies and blue grass, and it orbited a purple sun. (However, on "[[Turkey in the Straw: Part 2]]," [[ALF]] claims that Melmac has an orange sky and green clouds.)[[File:Restaurant_on_Melmac.png|thumb|300px|The restaurant scene in ALF's flashback dream in the episode "Help Me, Rhonda" is the only time Melmac is shown on the ALF TV series.]]

Melmac was destroyed on Gary 71st, 45-7, according to the [[Melmacian Calendar]] (1985 on the Earth calendar), although [[ALF|Gordon "ALF" Shumway]] claimed that his planet had exploded on his birthday, the 28th of Nathanganger, due to nuclear war. After his home planet exploded, [[ALF]] wandered through space for a year before crash-landing on [[Earth]].

In 578, one of Melmac's neighboring planets, [[Gwegon]], was invaded by Torks. The Federation declared war on [[Aktoerk]], the main planet supplying these creatures, ultimately starting a [[Galactic War I|huge war]], which Melmacians of Gordon Shumway's time learned about in their history books as Galactic War I. In 1243, the war ended.

Presumably in 1990, the year the TV show ended, ALF's friends [[Skip]] and [[Rhonda]] explained that Melmacians had bought a new planet on which they could live. The new planet was already inhabited, so Melmacians negotiated with the native aliens on the planet. ALF said this when he decoded the message sent in the series finale, "[[Consider Me Gone]]."

In 2016 Philip Sandeman was elected to be the Illustrious
 
Grand Leader of Melmac. Sandeman swept aside all contenders with voters incredibly keen on his infamous abilities to complete 50 headstand push ups, wax 200 bar on a night out and run 5k in under 20 minutes. Even more impressively he has squeezed 85mpg out of a 450bhp 1.6 automatic VW Golf and accurately predicted future oil prices. All hail Sandeman!
