Pretty much your questions answered it.
It's a placate, so the enemy cannot target you at all, even if you are alone. They generally tend to sit there for a moment, since it is only 2 seconds still, and not really wander off, but whether they shoot someone else depends on the threat level you had on them (In PvE that is).
Example: If you placate a big bad tac cube who was on your butt before, chances are he'll still be wanting to shoot you after it's done.
Now yes, after the placate is done, it does give a 12 second immunity. Also, it only works on the enemy/enemies you are shooting. If you're focused on the tac cube, and he has a couple sphere buddies along, those spheres can still shoot at you unless of course you manage to placate them as well.
A mime is a terrible thing to waste
Why are all of STO's EPs named 'Steve'?
