Ganalda IV was the fourth planet in the Ganalda system. This system was located within Klingon space in the Beta Quadrant.

In 2373, during the Federation-Klingon War, Federation forces forced the Klingons to retreat from Ganalda IV. Orderly Kirby on Ajilon Prime theorized this loss to be responsible for the Klingons' increased bloodlust. (DS9: "Nor the Battle to the Strong")
