Type: Planet
Location: Celtris system
Affiliation: Cardassian Union

Celtris III was the uninhabited third planet in the Celtris system. 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")

According to the script for "Chain of Command, Part II", the pronunciation for Celtris was "SELL-tris". [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.
