History[edit | edit source]
In 2266, Mantises abducted a landing party from the USS Enterprise. David Bailey followed the source of the transporter beam to the Mantis planet. A rescue party armed with non-lethal weapons landed a space bug near the Mantis zoo and stormed it to search for their missing personnel. (TOS comic: "Beware the Beast")
