Altair III was a planet, the third planet of the Altair star system located inside Federation space in the Alpha Quadrant of the galaxy.

History and specificsEdit

Altair III is homeworld to a native humanoid civilization, the Altairians.

The political situation in the Altair system was tenuous at the time of the 23rd century, with Federation diplomacy trying very carefully to keep fighting to a minimum between the inhabited worlds of this system. There was a long sustained conflict between Altair VI and Altair III that renewed itself around the year 2244, and would continue until the 2260s. Altair IV eventually declared independence from Altair VI in 2267, which sparked an escalation of fighting in the system. Federation peacekeeping forces eventually interceded, and Federation diplomats called for a cease-fire between all combatants, which was celebrated with much pomp and circumstance. When a new president of Altair IV was inaugurated at the end of the conflict, Starfleet placed the greatest emphasis on showing support by assigning three Constitution-class starships to observe the proceedings. (Last Unicorn RPG module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook; FASA RPG module: The Federation; TOS episode & Star Trek 3 novelization: Amok Time)

The USS Hood visited Altair III in the early 2360s. Due to circumstances, Commander William T. Riker, the ship's first officer, deemed the situation too dangerous to allow the captain to accompany the away team. (TNG episode & novelization: Encounter at Farpoint)

On star charts, this world could be seen to be in the vicinity of Antares, Omicron Ceti and Janus VI. (TNG episodes: "The Wounded", "Yesterday's Enterprise", TNG reference: The Continuing Mission)

In the 2360s decade, this location was noted on a star chart showing deployment of Federation and Cardassian Union ships displayed in Captain Benjamin Maxwell's ready room aboard the starship USS Phoenix. (TNG episode: "The Wounded")

Alternate realitiesEdit
