Altair VI was the inhabited sixth planet of the Altair system. The system was located in Sector 9. (TOS: "Amok Time") The location of the Altair system in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted in the "The Explored Galaxy" star chart. (TNG: "Conspiracy", production art)

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)

On the "The Explored Galaxy" chart, the location of Altair was positioned between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. According to dialog in "Call to Arms", the two were Alpha Quadrant powers.
According to the web site, Altair VI was the "center of the Altair system." [1]
