Tagus III was the inhabited third planet in its star system. This was the homeworld of the Taguans.

Civilization existed on the planet for over two billion years and it was therefore one of the most important archeological sites in the galaxy. Up until 2367, 947 archeological expeditions had been conducted, with 74 of them revealing findings of major importance, the first one 22,000 years prior and the last one within the four hundred years before 2367. A significant number of these excavations had been conducted by Vulcans, though confined to the northeast of "the city".

The Taguans sealed off their planet to foreign visitors in the mid-23rd century, but the planet was still the focus of much interest. In 2367, the annual symposium of the Federation Archaeology Council was held in orbit of Tagus III on board the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Qpid")

In the novel Q-Space, Q takes Captain Jean-Luc Picard into Tagus III's distant past to witness a prominent local ceremony of the era, where the Imotru- the previous sentient inhabitants of Tagus, with the Taguans of the present apparently a later evolution of life on their world – perform a ceremony where a group glide for over two days and proceed to sky-dive into a ring of fire to evade man-eating sea snakes, Q noting that he enjoyed witnessing the rite in his youth as it reflected how lower beings were unafraid to take chances and refused to accept limitations in favour of doing something with their lives.
