Ophiucus VI was an inhabited planet. It was the sixth planet in the Ophiucus star system. This was one of two inhabited planets in the system; the other was Ophiucus III.

Prior to stardate 4978, Harry Mudd visited Ophiucus VI, where he conned two miners out of a year's supply of dilithium crystals using fake Federation vouchers. (TAS: "Mudd's Passion")

In the novelization of "Mudd's Passion" (as published in Star Trek Log 3), Harry Mudd referred to this planet as a "charming frontier world."
According to Star Trek: Star Charts, the Ophiucus System (or 36 Opiuchi System) was located in non-aligned space in the mid-22nd century. In 2378, the system was located in or near Federation space. The system was a quadrinary star system. Ophiucus A was a K-class star with a magnitude of +3, which was ten times brighter than Sol. Ophiucus B, Ophiucus C, and Ophiucus D were K-class stars. This system was the namesake for the Ophiucus Sector (Sector 008). (pgs. 19, 44, "United Federation of Planets I") Ophiucus Sector (or Sector 008) was the eighth sector explored by Earth ships. (pg. 19)
