Starbase 4 was a Federation starbase that was administered by Starfleet. The planets Ariannus, Marcos XII, and Triacus, and the primary Epsilon Indi were located near this starbase.

The survivors of the Starnes Exploration Party on Triacus were transported to Starbase 4 by the USS Enterprise in 2268. (TOS: "And the Children Shall Lead")

Later in the same year, one of its shuttlecraft, da Vinci, was stolen from the starbase by Lokai, a fugitive from the planet Cheron, two weeks before it was found by the Enterprise. (TOS: "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield")

In 2399, the location of Starbase 4 was labeled in a star chart that was in Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy's office at Starfleet Headquarters. The starbase was located in or near to Federation space. (PIC: "Maps and Legends")
