Type: Planet
Location: Celtris system
Alpha Quadrant
Affiliation: Cardassian Union

Celtris III was the uninhabited third planet in the Celtris system, in the Alpha Quadrant. This system was located within Cardassian space.

In 2369, Starfleet Intelligence began monitoring bursts of theta-band subspace emissions from Celtris III, which typically indicate a metagenic device in operation. Since such devices were illegal, this led Starfleet to believe that the Cardassians might have been operating a secret research lab somewhere beneath the planet's surface. However, the signal was faked just to lure Captain Jean-Luc Picard to the planet, who was an expert in theta radiation. During a secret mission on Celtris III, Picard was taken into custody and interrogated by Gul Madred. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I", "Chain of Command, Part II")

"SELL-tris" was the pronunciation for this planet's name from the script pronunciation guide for "Tribunal" for "Chain of Command, Part II". [1]
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (page 46), the Celtris system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. This system was a single star system. This system's primary was a Class M star with a magnitude of +9.
