A meteoroid is a piece of astronomical debris, smaller than an asteroid. When a meteoroid enters an atmosphere, it is called a meteor, and the remains found after it lands are called meteorites.

In 2254, José Tyler proposed meteoroids as the source of some unusual readings encountered by the USS Enterprise. (TOS: "The Cage")

The probe Nomad suffered a serious loss of memory after a collision with a meteoroid. (TOS: "The Changeling")

In 2262, the SS Beagle suffered serious damage from a storm of meteoroids. (TOS: "Bread and Circuses")

In the revised story outline of TOS: "Charlie X", the Enterprise traversed "a hail shower of meteoroids." In a memo he wrote John D.F. Black about that outline (the memo was dated 11 May 1966), Robert Justman suggested, "This may be duplication of an effect we had in Star Trek I and also in the revised script on 'Mudd's Women'."
