Barradas III was the uninhabited third planet in the Barradas system, which was in the Taugan sector. It was the sole class M planet in the system.

Two thousand years before the 24th century, this planet was the site of a Debrune outpost. The ruins of this outpost had been surveyed by the Federation Archaeological Survey. In 2370, this one of several planets raided by a band of mercenaries led by Arctus Baran. During this raid, Commander William T. Riker of the USS Enterprise-D was captured. (TNG: "Gambit, Part I", "Gambit, Part II")

"buh-RAD-us" was the pronunciation for this planet's name from the script pronunciation guide.
According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion, the planet's name was a homage to "Beratis", an alias of the Redjac entity in TOS: "Wolf in the Fold".
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pp. 45,66) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Barradis system was located in the Beta Quadrant. The primary of this system was a K-class star. Two thousand years ago, this system was a destination on the Debrune trade route.
