Orion III was an inhabited third planet orbiting the primary Orion, in the Orion sector. This sector was located in the Alpha Quadrant. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art; TNG: "Conspiracy", display graphic; VOY: "Good Shepherd")

As part of a vision quest, Tom Paris told Chakotay that word had just come in from Vegas, Mars, and Orion III that the odds were 33:1 that Kid Chaos would outpoint him and 11:1 that he'd be k.o.ed by the fifth round. (VOY: "The Fight")

This planet was only mentioned in dialogue.
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 113) identified this planet as the home of a civilization. It is not clear if this civilization was the Orion, or another unnamed civilization. The novels Silent Weapons, The Light Fantastic and Tower of Babel place this planet in the Pi-3 Orionis system, and refer to the planet interchangeably as Orion III, Orion Prime, Pi-3 Orionis III, the Orion homeworld, or simply, the planet Orion.
