The Explored Galaxy

The location of Altair VI on "The Explored Galaxy" star chart

Altair VI was the inhabited sixth planet of the Altair system. The system was located in Sector 9. (TOS: "Amok Time")

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. (TOS: "Amok Time")

In 2285, Altair VI was a part of the Kobayashi Maru simulation at Starfleet Academy; the Kobayashi Maru claimed to be nineteen periods out of Altair VI. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

In 2293, the location of Altair VI in the Milky Way Galaxy was labeled in the star chart "The Explored Galaxy", which was on display in James T. Kirk's quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-A. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, okudagram)

"AL-tair" was the pronunciation for this planet's name from the script pronunciation guide for "Prophet Motive".
According to StarTrek.com, Altair VI was the "center of the Altair system."
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I") and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Altair VI (Alpha Aquilae VI) was located in the Alpha Quadrant.
