Bilana III was the inhabited third planet in its star system.

In 2368, Doctor Ja'Dar conducted the first test of the soliton wave, a new form of propulsion, from the Science Institute of Bilana III. Twenty-three field coils installed on the planet's surface generated the wave towards Lemma II, where a similar installation was to dissipate the wave. This planet was located three light years from Bilana III. (TNG: "New Ground")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 83) identified Bilana III as a Federation class M planet.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), in 2378, this planet was listed as a Federation member.
