Chintoka tactical map

Tactical map (Septimus was the upper-most marked system on the Cardassian side)

Septimus III was the inhabited third planet in its star system. The headquarters of the Cardassian Eleventh Order was located on this planet.

The location of Septimus III was labeled on a tactical map that was on display in the wardroom of Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets", production art)

The planet was attacked by the Klingon Empire just before the final stage of the Dominion War. The Klingons landed fifteen divisions, wiping out the Eleventh Order. According to Weyoun, this meant the Klingons had expended valuable resources to capture a strategically worthless planet. However, the Klingon victory ended up costing the Dominion heavily nonetheless because the nonchalance of Weyoun sacrificing the 500,000 men strong eleventh order was the final indignity that caused Legate Damar to instigate the Cardassian Rebellion. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows")

According to the script, the pronunciation for Septimus was "SEPT-uh-muss". [1]
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 46) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Septimus system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. The system's primary was a K-class star.
