Argus X was the uninhabited tenth planet of its star system. This system was located over a thousand light years from the Tycho system.

In 2268, the USS Enterprise conducted a planetary survey of Argus X, discovering a large vein of tritanium ore. Captain James T. Kirk sent a recommendation to Starfleet for a survey vessel to be dispatched to this planet as a result of the rich find.

Also discovered on the planet by the Enterprise landing party was the dangerous dikironium cloud creature, which attacked and killed (or nearly killed) five security guards. (TOS: "Obsession")

For the pre-remastered episode, the planet model for Argus X was first used for Delta Vega ("Where No Man Has Gone Before"). It was used again for Alfa 177 ("The Enemy Within", Tantalus V ("Dagger of the Mind"), Planet Q ("The Conscience of the King"), Benecia ("The Conscience of the King"), Gothos ("The Squire of Gothos"), Lazarus' planet ("The Alternative Factor"), Beta III ("The Return of the Archons"), Janus VI ("The Devil in the Dark"), Organia ("Errand of Mercy"), and Mudd ("I, Mudd"). It was later used for Ardana ("The Cloud Minders"). For the remastered episode, a new planet model was created by CGI artist Max Gabl.
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), the Argus system was located in or near Federation space. This system was a single star system. Argus was a M-class star with a magnitude of +9.
