Matra VI was a relatively isolated planet located in the Corporate Sector. It was a successful industrial world, and was populated largely by non-Human species. These aliens were drawn by the potential for a new life in the Corporate Sector, away from the predations of the Galactic Empire. While the Corporate Sector Authority was often just as harsh with non-Humans, on Matra VI many of them managed to grow quite rich, while still remaining removed from the upper echelons of the world's highly stratified society.

The gunslinger Gallandro lured and then killed the Malorm family on Matra VI after their raid on the Galaxy Wanderer. It was also one of a number of planets where Roa encountered his fellow refugee Ryn.
