Leata later worked as a dancer at Club Aknar, circa 2264, and had dealings and a romantic relationship with a Human man named Knox. There, Knox provided her with Muso's location: the planetoid Babel, where Muso was a delegate at a conference held at Babel Station. She later claimed her master sent her to kill Muso in exchange for a bounty on his own head.
- It's not clear if Leata is an Orion slave girl in service to this master, or if she is free and working independently.
After traveling to Babel, Leata seduced Muso outside the Babel Station, and was attempted to knife him when Fleet Captain Christopher Pike saw and intervened. Leata escaped using her gymnastic skills. She later infiltrated Babel Station and Muso's quarters, planning to kill him there. However, Pike was now conducting his own investigation and discovered her. She flirted with Pike to distract him with her pheromones, but he resisted the influence.
Ambushed coming out by Muso's thugs, and then by Muso himself, the pair fought together to defend themselves, where Leata displayed her impressive gymnastic martial arts skills. Turning the tables on Muso, she finally had him on the floor and ready to kill him. However, she relented when Pike said he couldn't allow her to murder him. Muso was arrested by station security and Leata supplied a memory record containing three year's worth of evidence on Muso.
