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")
"Buh-RAD-us" was the pronunciation for this planet's name from the script pronunciation guide.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pp. 45,66) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Barradas system was located in the Beta Quadrant. The primary of this system was a K-class star. Two thousand years ago, this system was a destination on the Debrune trade route.
