Melmac, as seen from space

"Melmac was the name of my planet. It's also what it was made out of"

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. 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).

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's national pastime was mining for yogurt. The planet was once the intergalactic convention site for the Federation of Incredibly Strange Food Groups.

Melmac was destroyed on Gary 71st, 45-7, according to the Melmacian Calendar (1985 on the Earth calendar), although ALF claims his planet exploded on his birthday (28th of Nathanganger), due to nuclear war. ALF wandered through space for a year before crash landing on Earth.

Executive Branch

Melmac is ran by the Imperial Intergalactic Trade Federation, Due to nuclear war, the Imperial Federation enforced the laws of the surrounding planets, Melmac, Alvin, Alvin Heights, Dave (Object Kowal & Chiron) & Pluto & possibly Mars. The Federation signed the Intergalactic Imperious Constitution, However, due to the destruction of Melmac, The Federation made a new Imperious Constitution, This prohibited starships from Melmac to leave a Federation controlled section of the galaxy, ALF became an outlaw & was pursued by the Federation & sneakily swept down to Earth to avoid persecution.

Legislative Branch

The Imperial Intergalactic Trade Federation formed the Imperial Senate & made a persecution law during Melmac's destruction, According to the document that restricted this action clearly stated that "no member of the Imperial Senate shall make a law working against the First Amendment", This document was repealed when the Federation made a new one.

Judicial Branch

The Federation registered a trial for any lawbreaker on any planet under Federation control, This justice system was abolished & replaced when the Federation made the Second Intergalactic Imperious Constitution & was replaced by disciplinary hearings with the Legislative & Executive Branch.

History of Melmac

Ancient History

Before Melmacians existed, huge creatures used to roam Melmac. They looked like a cross between a dinosaur and an insurance salesman.

Melmac was discovered 23,000 years ago when Harold Twink accidentally took the wrong exit for Neptune.

In 3 A.D., Melmac is owned under government policy of the new trade federation

In 5 A.D., The Federation signs the first constitution

In 6 A.D., The first prince is elected

In 578, Melmac's neighbors, Gwegon, is invaded by Torks, The Federation declares war on Aktoerk, The main planet supplying these creatures, ultimately starting a huge war

In 1243, The war ends

In 1298, Gwegonians declare war on Melmac, The war begins

Presumably in 1990 (the year the TV show ended), ALF's friends Skip and Rhonda have explained that Melmacians have bought a new planet to live on. The new planet was already inhabited, so Melmacians negotiated with the native aliens on the planet. This was said by ALF when he decoded the message sent in the series finale Consider Me Gone.
