Ophiucus III was an inhabited planet. It was the third planet in the Ophiucus planetary system. This was one of two inhabited planets in this system; the other was Ophiucus VI.

Prior to stardate 1329, an Earth colony was founded on this world. Women were scarce enough in this colony that intergalactic rogue Harcourt Mudd saw an opportunity in bringing them in from other worlds. (TOS: "Mudd's Women"; TAS: "Mudd's Passion")


Presumably, Ophiucus III was located in the Alpha Quadrant.
