Lya Station Alpha was a Federation Spacedock-type space station that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-24th century. This station orbited a planet.

In 2368, the USS Enterprise-D traveled to Lya Station Alpha with survivors from the attack on the Solarion IV colony. Ensign Ro Laren came aboard the Enterprise at this station, and Captain Jean-Luc Picard met with Admiral Kennelly there regarding suspected Bajoran terrorist activity. (TNG: "Ensign Ro")

The exterior of Lya Station Alpha was a reuse of footage of Starbase 74 from "11001001", which in turn was reuse of footage of the Earth Spacedock from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
Lya Station Alpha was identified by the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 491) as a Federation starbase.
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 47) and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Lya Station Alpha was located in the Lya system, in the Alpha Quadrant. As such, it might be part of the starbase known to associated with Lya III.
