Andromeda Galaxy

The Andromeda Galaxy (or "Constellation of Andromeda") was a galaxy located near Mutter's Spiral (Earth's galaxy).


Mavic Chen, Guardian of the Solar System, attended the Intergalactic Conference of Andromeda sometime prior to 4000. Planktus of the Outer Galaxies also attended. (DW: The Daleks' Master Plan)

Humans reached the Andromeda Galaxy by the time of Space Station Nerva's conversion into a space ark. (DW: The Ark in Space, The Sontaran Experiment) The Wirrn were native to Andromeda, though their breeding colonies were destroyed by Human colonists and, after a thousand years of fighting, they were driven from the Galaxy. They came to call Andromeda "the old lands". (DW: The Ark in Space) The Wirrn devastated the Phylox system. (EDA: Placebo Effect)

It was also the Galaxy where the Cult of Shining Darkness tried to destroy all robots. (NSA: Shining Darkness)

Beings known as the Three Sleepers originated from Andromeda. Having stolen data from the Matrix on Gallifrey, the Sleepers took refuge on Earth in the far future, circa 2,000,000 CE. In retribution for this, the Time Lords used the Magnetron to devastate the planet by fire, moving it two light years to cover up the leak. Owing to the move a rescue ship sent from Andromeda to recover the Sleepers and the data missed Earth and caused the Sleepers to die in suspended animation. (DW: The Trial of a Time Lord: The Mysterious Planet)

A hundred million years after Humans visited the Andromeda Galaxy, the Doctor's TARDIS landed in a planetoid-sized ship and an armada of smaller ships, traveling slower than the speed of light headed for Mutter's Spiral in order to conquer it. The ship contained the One, made up of millions of Andromedan minds, life forms from the Andromeda Galaxy and Aalas, the android servants of the One. (Doctor Who and the Invasion from Space)

Other information

  • At some point, there were high tensions between the organic and mechanical lifeforms in the Andromeda Galaxy, illustrated by the rise of the Cult of Shining Darkness. Andromeda is home to Near-Humans as well as several nonhumanoid forms. The Doctor considers his knowledge of Andromeda to be spotty. (NSA: Shining Darkness)

Behind the Scenes

  • Dialogue in The Mysterious Planet confusingly mentions the "constellation of Andromeda", which in real world astronomical terms makes no sense whatsoever. This entry assumes that this means the Andromeda Galaxy.
  • According to background information given in FASA's The Doctor Who Role Playing Game, the android Movellans originated in Andromeda before being expelled from that galaxy by a coalition of races known as the Organic League.

The Andromeda Galaxy

The Andromeda Galaxy is a spiral galaxy located around 2,500,000 light years from the Milky Way Galaxy. The closest point to the Andromeda Galaxy is located in the Alpha Quadrant.

The Star Trek: Starfleet Academy - Strategic Command mistakenly claims it is closer to 1,000,000 light years away.

For hundreds of years now, the galaxy has seen a rising radiation level which is believed would make it uninhabitable within 10,000 years. One of the local races of the galaxy, the Kelvan Empire, sent several multi-generational ships out to chart nearby galaxies for habitation. One such group arrived in the Alpha Quadrant in 2267 and were encountered by the crew of the USS Enterprise. (TOS episode: "By Any Other Name")

In the 2270s, the joint entity made of Willard Decker, Ilia and V'Ger headed for Andromeda. (TOS short story: "To Wherever")

In the 2280s, Starfleet had begun to look at exploring the Andromeda Galaxy and sent several long-range starships, including the USS Magellanic Clouds, to investigate. (TOS novelization: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

The Andromeda Galaxy was destroyed around 2380 by the Totality. (ST novel: Captain's Peril)

The Andromeda Galaxy

The Andromeda Galaxy is the closest spiral galaxy to the Milky Way and part of the Local Group. From its closest point to the Alpha Quadrant it is approximately 2.5 million light years away. Intelligent lifeforms in Andromeda include the Kelvans and the Archein. (TOS: "By Any Other Name"; Star Trek: Odyssey)

In 2384, Section 31 sent Theseus, aboard the USS Phoenix-X, to the Andromeda Galaxy using an altered-transwarp engine, in order to gain the Kelvans as Section 31 allies. Upon entering the Galaxy, the Phoenix-X was forced out of transwarp due to abnormally high radiation levels. The Kelvans chose to keep their dominant values and not accept Theseus' offer. Instead, Theseus found the Kelvans to be developing Omega molecules. Theseus then aquired a group of these molecules for himself, suspending them within an Andromedan android's abdomen using Kelvan technology. The Phoenix-X returned home to the Milky Way safely and had the adjustments to thier engine dismantled. (Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "Forbidden Crossing, Part III")
