This base was in Starfleet Intelligence sector 4 ("SW sector intel"), which contained many colony and home star systems of Federation members. The central control for Starfleet Intelligence bases in this area was at Starbase 14. Intelligence units active for this sector in the 23rd century included the Starfleet Intelligence Internal Activities Unit and Starfleet Intelligence Klingon Activities Unit.

In 2268, the USS Enterprise picked up Dhoraxi Ambassador Xahd at Starbase 14. While beaming to the starbase's surface installation, Captain James T. Kirk was transposed into an alternate timeline in which the Dhoraxi Empire replaced the Federation. (TOS - New Visions comic: "1971/4860.2")
In 2269, the Metans attacked the station. When the Enterprise arrived to render assistance, only 74 of a crew of 5700 survived. The Metans attempted to frame the Romulan Star Empire for the act, to gain control of this region of space, but were thwarted by the Enterprise crew. (TOS - The Chosen comic: "Blood Enemies")
In 2270, starships were withdrawn from the region surrounding Starbase 14 for four months for routine maintenance. During a sensitive negotiation on Briamos, Klingon Captain Kumara suggested that it was because the sector's inhabitants weren't considered worth protecting, a demonstration of Federation negligence.

In 2364, Starbase 14 coordinated the response to the outbreak of Anchilles disease that had gripped Styris IV. The base monitored the plague and reported the situation to the USS Enterprise-D, which was attempting to acquire a vaccine for the disease on Ligon II. (TNG episode: "Code of Honor")
In 2368, the starbase was contact point for regular updates from Dr. Marjorie Devarona's archaeological expedition to Rajatha Prime. When the expedition failed to make the scheduled contact the starbase altered the Enterprise-D to investigate. (TNG - The Space Between comic: "Captain's Pleasure")
In 2370, Travis Perraton contacted Starbase 14 to request a replacement combat support tender to take over their patrol while he and Eric Stiles diverted the USS Saskatoon to rendezvous with the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG - Double Helix novel: Red Sector)
