The Andromeda Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 2,500,000 light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Andromeda. It is the nearest spiral galaxy to our own, the Milky Way. As it is visible as a faint smudge on a moonless night, it is one of the farthest objects visible to the naked eye. Like the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy has satellite galaxies, consisting of 14 known dwarf galaxies. The best known and most readily observed satellite galaxies are M32 and M110.

The Andromeda Galaxy played a provincial role in the 1961 A for Andromeda television series. Scientists Doctor John Fleming and Ernest Reinhart discovered a radio signal being transferred from the Andromeda Nebula to Earth, carrying with it, instructions on how to construct a supercomputer. [1]

On the science fiction television series Andromeda, the Andromeda Galaxy was where the planet Brandenburg Tor was located. Brandenburg Tor was located within the Muttawalis Globular Cluster and was the original home of the Nietzschean race, who were a genetic offshoot of humanity.

In the continuity of the Marvel Comics' Marvel Universe, the Andromeda Galaxy is home to the Shi'ar Empire. The throneworld of the Shi'ar is a planet called Chandilar, which is the birth place of the ruling Neramani family. It is also home to the Skrull Empire, who occupied the planet Tarnax IV for many years, branding it the "Throneworld" of the Skrull race. [2]
