Starbase 343 was a Federation starbase administered by Starfleet. This base was located in the Beta Quadrant.

The starbase was operational by at least 2256. (DIS: "Choose Your Pain") In that year, this starbase's location was labeled on the star chart "Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview" in the ready room aboard the USS Discovery. (DIS: "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad")

In 2257, during the first Federation-Klingon War, the starbase was occupied by the Klingons. (DIS: "The War Without, The War Within")

Later that year, its location was labeled on the star chart showing the trajectory of Lieutenant Spock's shuttle. (DIS: "An Obol for Charon")

In 2366, the USS Enterprise-D was diverted to the starbase to transport urgently needed medical supplies to the Alpha Leonis system, postponing its rendezvous with the USS Goddard. Several Enterprise-D crewmembers took extended shore leave here during this transport, as it was expected to be a quiet mission. (TNG: "The Vengeance Factor")

In 2399, the location of Starbase 343 in neutral space was labeled on a Federation star chart that was in Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy's office at Starfleet Headquarters. (PIC: "Maps and Legends")
