|Omicron Persei 8|
|First appearance||"When Aliens Attack" (1ACV12)|
Omicron Persei 8 is a planet situated about 1000 lightyears from Earth, in orbit around the star of Omicron Persei. The rulers of the planet are Lrrr and his wife Ndnd. It's surface seems to consist mainly of deserts. It is the home world and capital of the warlike Omicronians, the single greatest threat Earth and the entire Democratic Order of Planets are facing. It seems to have a small, asteroid-like satellite. In addition to this, there could be two or more moons, since Lrrr tells Ndnd he will send her to the third moon of Omicron Persei 8.

Lrrr: One of these days, Ndnd... [Points into the air.] Bang! Zoom! - Straight to the third moon of Omicron Persei 8!

- Omicron is a planet, as opposed to a star, featured in the ninth book The Omicron Invasion (1984) of Dr. E. E. Smith's science-fiction novel series. Use of the name may be a homage to Smith's work - Smith is considered by some to be the "father of space opera" - some episodes of Futurama could be considered to fall under this category.
