Dr. Yae Takenada was a human archeologist who lived in the 23rd century.

In 2273, Yae was the assistant to Dr. Abe, the director of an archaeological dig at the Seikenji monastery in Japan. In the aftermath of his journey to Japan's past, Lieutenant Commander Hikaru Sulu visited the dig and spent some days as Yae's aide, coming to think of her as being "as close as a sister". Yae and Sulu unearthed the stone in the temple garden on which Sulu had engraved the names of himself and Lady Oneko in 1600. (TOS novel: Home Is the Hunter)
