Captain: Mark Trenton
The Goddard is the second Heim-class cruiser to be built. It features a few incremental upgrades from the Heim, mostly in efficiency and computer processing, as well as having the software tuned for more optimal performance. (These updates are planned to be applied to the Heim.)
In 3676, the Goddard's computer software was upgraded to an artificial intelligence named Eliza. Captain Trenton volunteered to test the software.
