Altair VI was an inhabited planet. It was the sixth planet of the Altair planetary system. The system was located in Sector 9, which was a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. The planet was affiliated with the United Federation of Planets. This was one of three inhabited planets in this system; the others were Altair III and Altair IV.
Despite a long interplanetary conflict in this system in the years before, Altair VI was well known for its excellent shore leave facilities in 2267. In the same year a new president was to be inaugurated on the planet, an event of significant importance towards stability in the Altair system. The inauguration was expected to send shock waves as far as the Klingon Empire and therefore was attended by three Starfleet starships, including the USS Enterprise.
