I read your comment above and found it fascinating!  It does add quite a bit to the story behind the game.

I dont recall Asteroids ever having any actual characters

Maybe Mukor, but he was in Blasteroids

I used one of my 1982 book call "The Story of Atari Asteroids 1 edition"  its a read-along audio recordings, each book has black and white illustrations on each page, as well as the text of the story. This is a story book that tells of a Recon Patrol pilot named John Strohmeyer and a female android co-pilot, who is investigating the disappearance of an ore-carrier. He enters a asteroid belt, where he meets a Cosmic Space Patrol, and they are attacked by pirates that have hijacked the ship they where supposed to investigate. The ore ship is destroyed by the pirates, and then the asteroid rushes at his ship, but is the asteroid is destroyed by the Cosmic Space Patrol ship, revealing a hidden pirate command center as it explodes. After battle and suffering from some damage, John's ship is towed to safety.
