Cerberus II was the homeworld of the Cerberus II natives. It was the second planet in the Cerberus planetary system.

Prior to stardate 41309, the natives of Cerberus II had developed a medical process for rejuvenating aged bodies. The process was quite dangerous and painful and was not usually administered to aliens. However, in 2364, Starfleet Admiral Mark Jameson, who years before had negotiated a treaty on the planet, was able to obtain the process as a treatment for Iverson's Disease.

The process consisted of herb and drug combinations that are self-administered over a period of two years and the reaction to the treatment depends on the individual being treated, specifically their DNA. Jameson broke the treatment procedure and administered the entire dosage at once, a move that ultimately caused his health to deteriorate even more rapidly. (TNG: "Too Short a Season")

In the closed captioning, this planet was spelled as "Cerebus." According to Startrek.com, the planet was named for Cerberus, the three-headed dog that guarded the gate to Hades in Greek mythology. [1] The native species of the planet was called the Cerebusians. [2]
