Ophiucus III was the inhabited third planet in the Ophiucus system.

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")

In 2328, this was the point of embarkation for Keven Scott, who was traveling by a commercial transport to his destination on planet Organia. In 2370, when Data was verifying the story of Doctor Juliana O'Donnell that both she and Noonien Soong were passengers on a transport traveling from Omicron Theta to Mavala IV , the passenger manifest of Scott was displayed on the Commercial transport database. (TNG-R: "Inheritance")
