Tessen III

Tessen III was the inhabited third planet in its star system.

In 2368, the USS Enterprise-D destroyed an asteroid threatening to impact on the planet. While most of the asteroid could be destroyed with photon torpedoes, the core composed of nitrium and chrondite could only be a destroyed with a particle beam from the deflector dish. After destroying the asteroid, the Enterprise left Tessen III for the Moselina system. (TNG: "Cost of Living")

According to Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"; "United Federation of Planets IV") and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Tessen system was located in the Beta Quadrant. The system's primary was an A-class star. In 2378, Tessen III was listed as a Federation member.
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 387), Tessen III was a Federation planet.
