Malaya IV was the inhabited fourth planet in its star system. A Federation medical facility was located on this planet.

Lieutenant Paul Hickman had a routine physical on the planet and passed it "with flying colors" shortly before he was compelled by the DNA infection with the Tarchannen III species to return to Tarchannen III in 2367. (TNG: "Identity Crisis")

Doctor Noonian Soong and Juliana O'Donnell went there in 2328 to get secretly married. Their wedding was witnessed by a Corvallen trader and a Klingon and their marriage certificate was kept at the Registrar's Office.

After 2328, in the chaos that ensued after the planetary government was overthrown, many documents, including the Soong marriage certificate were destroyed.

In 2370, in an effort to confirm Doctor Juliana O'Donnell's story, Data was checking the passenger manifests of the period to see if she traveled to Malaya IV. This planet was mentioned in the commercial transport database archive of the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Inheritance")

For the planet in "Inheritance", the script, the actual dialogue in-episode pronunciation [1], and the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 293) spells the planet's name as "Mavala IV"; however, the okudagram spells the planet's name as Malaya IV .
According to the script, the pronunciation for Mavala was "mah-VAY-lah". [2]
