I don't understand. Your comment above makes it seem that you
are aware of ListPointPlot3D. If so, what is it about
ListPointPlot3D that isn't doing what you need? That is

ListPointPlot3D[Table[{Cos[t], Sin[t], Sqrt[t]}, {t, 0, 4 Pi, 0.2}],
  BoxRatios -> Automatic]

is plot for "a sequence of points that trace out a curve in 3D space".
