Alpha Majoris was the primary in the Alpha Majoris planetary system. The system included the planet Alpha Majoris I. (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold") This star was located in the Alpha Quadrant. Its location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The first planet of the system was home to an animal known as the Mellitus, a "cloud creature". In its normal state, it existed as a gas held together by a highly cohesive electromagnetic field. When the mellitus stopped, it became solid. These abilities were considered similar to those possessed by the Redjac entity. (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold")
