Hmmm. It looks as if you are passing the symbols. Thus you get
the symbols. Try not quoting the list, i.e. say for example

  (trav-mapobject-set-owner (list planet asteroid))

instead of

  (trav-mapobject-set-owner '(planet asteroid))

Note that in Lisp and its daughters there is more distance between
a symbol and its binding(s) than we mght be accustomed to :-)
