The Andromeda Council is an intergalactic governance & development body of aligned benevolent star systems & planets of sentient intelligent life… for worlds in both the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies.
The chaired members of the Andromeda Council comprise a total of twelve (12) distinct representative council member races. Alex Collier has also had contact with Andromedans, but not the same group. Alex Collier is referring to the Andromedan Council as a political body, like a United Nation of the Milky Way Galaxy. Andromeda, in this case, does not refer to the Andromedan Galaxy, but the Andromeda star constellation.
