The surface of Taurean II

Taurean II was the second planet of the Taurean system. In 2119, this world was chosen as a new homeworld by the Taureans, a warp capable humanoid species. The alien race settled on the planet, when their original homeworld began to die.

The Taureans built, for themselves, an advanced civilization, including a temple and numerous other architectural wonders. Unfortunately, these new inhabitants did not know at the time that the planet drained humanoid energy. The women's bodies were able to develop a glandular secretion that enabled them to survive and to manipulate certain areas of the males' brains to influence their emotions, ultimately draining the men. This caused the men to weaken and eventually die. The female Taureans realized that, in order to survive, they had to revitalize every 27 years, as they became eternal prisoners of the planet. They were neither capable of aging, dying, or bearing children. They revitalized themselves by means of summoning male crew members of starships from as far as twenty light years away.

In 2269, the USS Enterprise was investigating several disappearances within range of Taurean system when they fell victim to their summons. After reaching an agreement with the Taureans, the crew of the Enterprise arranged for Starfleet to send a ship crewed by women. These women would transport the Taureans to a suitable planet where they could live out their lives as mortal women. (TAS: "The Lorelei Signal")

The novelization of "The Lorelei Signal" depicted this planet as having rainstorms that are "typically sudden."
