Pallas, located in the main asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, is the third largest asteroid in the Solar System (~512 km in diameter). It has 22% of the mass of Ceres, the largest asteroid in the Solar System, and a gravity of 0.021 g (2.1% of the force of Earth's gravity). With an orbital inclination of 34.8°, Pallas's orbit is unusually highly inclined with respect to the plane of the asteroid belt, making Pallas more difficult for spacecraft to reach.

In the universe of The expansion Television series (a science fiction political drama set in the mid-24th century, when humans colonized the entire solar system) Pallas features one of the oldest stations, Palas Stationon the outer planets, refining stations for mining operations in the Asteroid Belt and the Belt's largest fuel refinery.
