Daled IV was the inhabited fourth planet of its star system. This was the homeworld for a species of shapeshifters known as allasomorphs. In the mid-2360s, there was no formal contact between Daled IV and the Federation. This was the home for the Command Headquarters.

Daled IV had an almost identical atmosphere to Klavdia III. The troposphere of the planet distorted normal communications signals. The environment was hostile to humanoid lifeforms. Daled IV had at least three moons, and its third moon was inhabited and similar in appearance to Earth's moon Luna.

The planet rotated only once per a revolution around its primary, meaning on one side of the planet it was constantly light, and on the other side it was constantly night. Disparate cultures evolved in each hemisphere which resulted in a civil war lasting for the entirety of their recorded history.

In 2349, a man from one side and a woman from the other had a child, Salia, hoping that her not being from either side would one day allow her to neutrally govern and unify the planet. They contacted the Federation, and asked for a Starfleet ship to transport her to Klavdia III, where she was to train for sixteen years before her return. The parents died shortly thereafter.

In 2365, Starfleet sent the USS Enterprise-D to Klavdia III to pick up Salia, and transport her (and her caretaker Anya) back to Daled IV. Although Salia was slightly reluctant to govern her people, she did decide to beam down and take her place in the government. Salia wished that her world would one day have formal contact with the Federation. (TNG: "The Dauphin")

The planet model for Daled IV was first used for Klavdia III. ("The Dauphin") It was later used for Tau Cygna V, ("The Ensigns of Command") Moab IV, ("The Masterpiece Society") and Devidia II. ("Time's Arrow")
