Does it have a spaceship that is an asteroid? If not, do any of the Spacdship series products have one?

GURPS Spaceships has stats for Rock (and Ice) armor.

For pre-designed ships, Spaceships 6, 7 and 8 all have a few.

Actually, 7 does not. It has only a couple example ships and none of them really qualify as "asteroid" ships. Most of Spaceships 7 is filled with new and alternate ship systems and ship features.

Spaceships 6 & 8, however, do have several examples. Spaceships 8 takes a heavy bent towards realistic near future, since the ships are all based on GURPS Transhuman Space.

The Tree Ship is perhaps pushing it a bit.

Don't tree ships appear in both Niven's The Integral Trees and Hayashi's Tenchi Muyo?

Thanks, that is exactly what I wanted to know.
