Alpha Beta Quadrant Overview star chart

Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview

Starbase 343 was a Federation starbase administered by Starfleet, in the Beta Quadrant.

The starbase was operational by at least 2256. (DIS: "Choose Your Pain") In that year, this starbase's location was labeled on the star chart "Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview" in the ready room aboard the USS Discovery. (DIS: "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad")

In 2257, during the first Federation-Klingon War, the starbase was occupied by the Klingons. (DIS: "The War Without, The War Within")

In 2366, the USS Enterprise-D was diverted to the starbase to transport urgently needed medical supplies to the Alpha Leonis system, postponing its rendezvous with the USS Goddard. Several Enterprise crewmembers took extended shore leave here during this transport, as it was expected to be a quiet mission. (TNG: "The Vengeance Factor")
