ListPlot3D will plot a surface.  You want a line.  This can be done
with the function ScatterPlot3D which is defined in the package
Graphics`Graphics3D.  This is documented in the Guide To Standard

Thus for example

	Mathematica 2.1 for NeXT
	Copyright 1988-92 Wolfram Research, Inc.
	 -- NeXT graphics initialized -- 

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

	In[2]:= data = Table[ { t Cos[t], t Sin[t], t}, 


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

	Out[3]= -Graphics3D-

PlotJoined -> False will result in Points.
