The USS Goddard (NCC-59621) was a 24th century Federation Korolev-class starship operated by Starfleet.
In 2366, Goddard was scheduled to rendezvous with the USS Enterprise-D, but the Enterprise was delayed by a diplomatic mission to the planet Acamar. (TNG: "The Vengeance Factor")
In 2367, the Goddard was at Starbase 414 for resupply. The ship was named on the chart "Starfleet Operations-Sectors 21166-23079" in the USS Enterprise-D bridge. (TNG: "Brothers" okudagram)
In early 2368, the Goddard was part of the task force led by the Enterprise-D that blockaded the Klingon-Romulan border during the Klingon Civil War. In the tachyon detection grid, the Goddard was linked to the USS Hermes. The location of the ship in the grid was labeled with the ship's name and registry. (TNG: "Redemption II" okudagram)
In 2369, the Goddard was at Starbase 434 for resupply. The ship was named on the chart "Starfleet Operations-Sectors 21538-23079" in the Enterprise-D observation lounge. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I" okudagram)
The class and registry were derived from the chart in "Brothers".
