In 2269, a gathering of Imperial Starfleet personnel took place on Elba II to acknowledge and celebrate the recent promotion of Captain Spock to the rank of Admiral. In attendance was Grand Admiral Garth of Izar and his Orion "prime consort" Marta. At the time, Donald Cory was the governor of Elba II.
Garth's intention was to use his ability to shape-shift and disguise himself as Spock; he would then have himself beamed up to the ISS Enterprise where he believed Spock had some ultimate weapon hidden in his quarters. Unbeknownst to Garth, Spock had learned of his shape-shifting abilities from Captain James T. Kirk's log entries and had prepared for any subterfuge on Garth's part.
- It is unknown if the mirror Elba II had an asylum on its surface as in the case of the Elba II of the primary universe.
