The Sixth Fleet was a numbered fleet in the United Federation of Planets Starfleet active during at least the 23rd and 24th centuries. The Sixth Fleet was one of many that was involved in the Dominion War.
At the end of 2295, Pavel Chekov was promoted to fleet captain and repositioned as commander of the Sixth Fleet. The Sixth was tasked with the exploration of the Beta Quadrant on a seven-year mission. (Orion Press: "New Orders", "Walking on Broken Glass")

On stardate 51474.3 the Dominion launched an attack against Coridan, which was defended by the Sixth along with the Sixteenth Fleet. The two fleets managed to drive the Jem'Hadar away, but not before significant damage was done, which crippled dilithium production on the planet for months.
