Asteroid Tessel was an astronomical object which, in the 2260s, was undergoing an excavation by the United Federation of Planets. Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise visited Tessel during this period, accompanied by A & A officer Lt. Carolyn Palamas, and during their time there, had run-in with a group of million-year-old robot warriors. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)
