Asteroid containing Internment Camp 371

Asteroids are celestial bodies that are less than a planetoid, and are responsible for making up asteroid belts.

Historically, this term has been applied to any astronomical object orbiting a sun that did not resolve into a disc, and has not been observed to have characteristics of an active comet.

Larger asteroids are often called planetoids.

Known Uses:

  • The Infamous Klingon penal colony Rura Penthe was constructed on a particularly inhospitable asteroid.
