Outpost 3 was an outpost constructed on an asteroid by Starfleet in 2160. This outpost was one of seven Earth Outpost Stations located on the Federation side of the Romulan Neutral Zone in Sector Z-6 of the Beta Quadrant.
During the Neutral Zone Incursion, the location of Outpost 3 was labeled on a map of Sector Z-6 that was displayed on the bridge viewscreen of the USS Enterprise. (TOS: "Balance of Terror", production art)
Between 2266 and 2366, this outpost had been rebuilt. The location of the new Outpost 3 was labeled on a tactical intelligence analysis star chart. This base received a warning from Starfleet Command about an alleged Romulan base on Nelvana III. (TNG: "The Defector", okudagram)
