Barradas III was the uninhabited third planet in the Barradas system. This system was located in Sector 2158, a region of space in the Beta Quadrant.

Barradas III was the sole class M planet in the system and was located less than a day from Calder II at maximum warp.

Two thousand years before the 24th century, this planet was the site of a Debrune outpost. The ruins of this outpost had been studied for centuries by the 24th century and been surveyed by the Federation Archaeological Survey. In 2370, this was one of several planets raided by a band of mercenaries led by Arctus Baran. During this raid, Commander William T. Riker of the USS Enterprise-D was captured. The Enterprise then stayed at Barradas III and further investigated the ruins, before leaving for the Calder system. (TNG: "Gambit, Part I")
