I think you want to use ScatterPlot3D which is defined in the standard
package Graphics`Graphics3D` and documented in the Guide to Standard

In[1]:= <<Graphics`Graphics3D`

In[2]:= data = Table[ {t Cos[t], t Sin[t], t}, {t,0,4Pi,Pi/20}];

In[3]:= ScatterPlot3D[ data, PlotJoined -> True ]

Out[3]= -Graphics3D-
