Among these planets, you can easily get to Ceres through progressing in the game and later on set your eyes for General Sargus Ruk on Saturn or remain in Ceres. While Derelict does have Orokin Cells in its drop table, not many players head there since Ceres and Saturn have easier missions.
Tethys is an assassination mission on Saturn where you target General Sargas Ruk which players use to farm Orokin Cells late game. A lot of veteran players may know by now that General Sargas Ruk has a 100% chance to drop Orokin Cells on death, making Tethys considered as the best place to farm Orokin Cells by some.

Another option other than farming Sargus Ruk would be to head to Gabii on Ceres which turns out to be quite the Orokin Cell farm choice for those with Warframes that can force loot from enemies. The Orokin Cell drop rate is not as high as other resources but they do tend to drop every now and then, especially with farming Warframes.
If you’re wondering how to get Orokin Cells early in Warframe, you may want to focus on Ceres since this comes right after Mars and is easy to head to when you first start out. Gabii is a Dark Sector mission and the Orokin Cell drop rate is higher than most missions on the planet because of this.
Seimeni is another Dark Sector mission on Ceres which is a defense mission and nevertheless, still a viable place to get Orokin Cells. Being a mission on Ceres, it pits you against the infested and all of them will be rushing towards the defense target allowing you to easily kill them for a chance to drop Orokin Cells.

It may not be the fastest way to get Orokin Cells but it is still considered a possible method, especially with the other resources you can obtain.
Amongst the 3 planets, Saturn is pretty much chosen for the abundance of Cell Arrays that can be found between missions and mostly because of the Tethys mission. If you are not capable of farming General Sargas Ruk, it is a good choice to head over to Gabii or Seimeni on Ceres as these missions offer a good chance to get Orokin Cells.
While the Derelict does have Orokin Cells in its drop list, it has no Dark Sector missions and should only be considered a choice if you need some of the other resources from the planet. The best Orokin Cell farming method is either killing General Sargus Ruk on Saturn repeatedly or farming Gabii on Ceres.
