Caleb IV was the fourth planet of the Caleb planetary system, and it was the site of a Federation outpost in the 23rd century.

Although it has not been clearly stated on screen, it was likely Caleb IV was located near the Federation-Klingon border.

In the 2260s, it was attacked by two Klingon divisions led by Kang and Kor. Aboard the D5 class cruiser IKS Klothos, Kor outmaneuvered the defending Federation forces by attacking with an initial feint, and then returning with his full force, catching the Federation in the midst of their repair work.

A century later, during a similar attack on a Dominion base at Trelka V, Kor believed that he was back at Caleb IV. (DS9: "Once More Unto the Breach")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (pages 45, 56,66, & "United Federation of Planets I"), the Caleb system was located in the Beta Quadrant. This system, also known as Chi Eridani (22nd century onwards) and Kaleb (late 24th century), was a binary star system. Primary was a Class G star with a magnitude of +1, which was a hundred times the brightness of Sol. Secondary was a Class G star. In the mid-22nd century, this system was in or near Romulan space. After 2160, this system was in or near Federation space. Kaleb IV was listed as a member planet of the Federation in 2378.
