The location of Talos on "The Explored Galaxy" star chart

Talos III was the third planet of the Talosian system located in the Talos star group within the Alpha Quadrant. It had a ring system but no moons.

The planet was located 2.5 astronomical units from the binary stars of Talos A and Talos B. Sometime before stardate 8130, materials from Talos III were sent in a container to Regula. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Part I"; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art)


The planet was never mentioned in dialog; this name came from a map of the Talosian system. Talos III was identified again on a blue cargo-container tube seen in The Wrath of Khan. In "The Explored Galaxy" the location of Talos was depicted between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both locations were identified in DS9: "Call to Arms" as being located in the Alpha Quadrant.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts, Talos III was a L-class planet. In 2378, Talos III was located in or near Federation space, in the Alpha Quadrant. (Pgs. 40-41, "United Federation of Planets III")
