The rook was a chess piece.
In 2265, when Gary Mitchell asked if the chess game was finished, Spock responded, "He (James T. Kirk) played most illogically. His next move should have been the rook." (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")
When Q set a challenge for the bridge crew of the USS Cerritos in 2380 by placing them on a large chess board (with elements of several other games and sports), he made Dr. T'Ana into a rook. (LD: "Veritas")
