The Explored Galaxy

The location of Alpha Majoris in "The Explored Galaxy" wall chart

Alpha Majoris was the primary of the Alpha Majoris 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")
