The sixth-millennium spans a period of recorded Colonial History from the yahrens 6000 to 6999.

This term is prefixed to various crafts of the era by CORA, notably the sixth-millennium starfighter and sixth-millennium shuttle that Starbuck encounters near Proteus, an abandoned penal colony and war-materiel manufacturer established during the same time period (TOS: "The Long Patrol").
