The previously uninhabited planet was settled in 2370 by a group of Boraalans who had fled their original homeworld of Boraal II, which was devastated by atmospheric dissipation. The move was conducted by Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko and the USS Enterprise-D. Vacca VI was chosen by Commander Data and Dr. Beverly Crusher over Draygo IV. The climate on the planet was slightly less hospitable than Draygo for the Boraalans, but resembled their former homeworld most accurately and was the safest location out of the available choices.

According to the script, the pronunciation for Vacca was "VACK-uh". [1]
The graphic "Class M Planet Search – 1126", with information on this planet and Draygo IV, was put up for auction in 2018. Only the lower portion of the graphic actually made it into the episode. [2]
