The location of Gamma Tauri IV on a tactical map

Gamma Tauri IV was the fourth planet in the Gamma Tauri system, in the Alpha Quadrant, on the Federation side of the Cardassian border. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets").

Prior to 2364, the Federation established an unmanned monitor outpost on this planet. In 2364, the images of a Ferengi Template:ShipClass raider were captured on the outpost's automatic scanners as a T-9 energy converter was heisted by crew members of the starship. Alerted by the theft, the starship Enterprise-D was tasked with pursuing the raider by Starfleet. During negotiations with the Ferengi, DaiMon Tarr of the Ferengi claimed this system was in Ferengi territory, a claim dismissed by Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise-D. Later, with the persuasion of the Portal, the Ferengi returned the converter to the Federation. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

In 2375, the planet's location was depicted on a Federation tactical map of the plan for the invasion into the Chin'toka system. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 37), Gamma Tauri was a G class star with a magnitude of +1, which was a hundred times brighter than Sol.
