In the early 2360s, when the USS Hood visited this system, Lieutenant Commander William T. Riker refused to let Captain Robert DeSoto transport to the surface of Altair III with an away team because he deemed the action as too dangerous. By preventing his captain from beaming down, Riker disobeyed a direct order and risked a general court martial. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", "The Pegasus")
In 2366, in an alternate timeline, during the Federation-Klingon War, the location of Altair III was labeled on a tactical situation monitor in the ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise", okudagram)
