26734 Terryfarrell is an asteroid discovered on April 23, 2001 by Canadian astronomer William Kwong Yu Yeung. Initially designated 2001 HG16, the asteroid was given its present name by the International Astronomical Union in honor of American actress Terry Farrell, who is best known for playing Jadzia Dax on the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

An asteroid discovered one day earlier by Yeung was given the name 26733 Nanavisitor by the IAU in honor of Farrell's DS9 co-star, Nana Visitor.
