Surata IV was the inhabited fourth planet in the Surata system.

In 2365, the USS Enterprise-D visited here, where William T. Riker was stung by a thorn teeming with Surata IV microbes which attacked his central nervous system. The vine was predatory, as it deliberately stabbed any warm-blooded creature that happened by it. The plant then absorbed the nutrients from the decaying victim in order to grow and propagate.
