Tactis II orbital view.

Tactis II was rogue asteroid located somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrant.

History and specifics[]

Tactis II had a barren surface dominated by an active volcano. A parasitic non-humanoid entity living within the volcano was capable of duplicating humans, robots and even their shuttlecraft.

In 2267, the USS Enterprise investigated the asteroid to make sure it didn't pose a hazard to Federation planets. Lieutenant Calder accompanied a shuttle landing party that encountered the Tactisian entity. (TOS comic: "The Mimicking Menace")

Although the comic's cover showed a grassy surface, the story itself depicted only dirt.
