Draken IV was the fourth planet in the Draken planetary system. This planet was the location of a Starfleet base, and was located in the same sector as Barradas III, Calder II, and Yadalla Prime. This sector was located near the Romulan Neutral Zone.
The following year, an archaeological site located on Draken IV was suggested as a possible raiding target for the band of mercenaries operating under Arctus Baran. (TNG: "Gambit, Part I") Starfleet Command anticipated that Baran might attack this planet so a Federation starship was sent to this planet to intercept his ship. (TNG: "Gambit, Part II")
