A city on Lactra VII

Lactra VII was the inhabited seventh planet of the Lactra system. This M class planet with Earth-normal atmosphere and gravitywas the homeworld for the Lactrans, a highly advanced non-humanoid telepathic species. The planet was located several light years away from Canopus III in the Alpha Quadrant. (TAS: "The Eye of the Beholder", Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art)

The Explored Galaxy

The location of Lactra VII in "The Explored Galaxy" star chart

The location of Lactra VII in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art)

According to "The Explored Galaxy" star chart, Lactra VII was located between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both were identified in DS9: "Call to Arms" as being located in the Alpha Quadrant.


The Federation had no previous information on the planet prior to the six-week survey mission conducted by the USS Ariel in 2269.

Sensor scans later conducted by the USS Enterprise, supported by several surface contacts, revealed a variety of lifeforms on the planet from such planets as Canopus III and Maravel. Portions of Lactra VII were heavily terraformed, however, not done so in the traditional pattern, as several of the biomes seemed to be patterned at random.

Landing party observations made by the crew of the Enterprise noted that the planet featured several different ecologies co-existing significantly close to each other. One such example included a desert and a rainforest separated by a river. The water discovered on Lactra VII was clear and palatable, but was, according to Spock, "too pure."

Sensors later revealed a large concentration of lifeforms 98.5 kilometers northeast of the desert. Lactra VII was particularly well noted for having an immense zoo. (TAS: "The Eye of the Beholder")
