Septimus III was the third planet of the Septimus planetary system, and was the headquarters of the Cardassian Eleventh Order. Septimus was relatively close to the Goralis system, near the Cardassian border. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

The planet was attacked by the Klingon Empire just before the final stage of the Dominion War. The Klingons landed 50 divisions, wiping out the Eleventh Order. According to Weyoun, this meant the Klingons had expended valuable resources to capture a strategically worthless planet. However, the Klingon victory ended up costing the Dominion heavily nonetheless because the nonchalance of Weyoun sacrificing the 500,000 men strong eleventh order was the final indignity that caused Legate Damar to instigate the Cardassian Rebellion. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts, on page 46, the Septimus system's primary was a K-type star, located in the Alpha Quadrant.
