Goddard II is the second planet of the Goddard system in the Deneb Sector and the site of the Goddard Colony, populated by 250000 colonists. It was named after Robert H. Goddard, the father of rocketry science.
It was colonized in 2512 by humans from North America, mainly scientists and educators. With them they brought about 7225 varieties of trees from Earth to transplant and prevent their extinction, resulting to the 12500km extant Conservation Forest
Eventually it was destroyed around 2656.284 during the Terran-Kilrathi War. It was the site where KIS Sivar used its Graviton Weapon against the colony, eradicating all life. The colony managed to send a distress call to High Command. Radio chatter and comm-sat data black box, recorded an energy weapon blast that the orbital emplacements couldn't deflect. Admiral Deke Stover of High Command ordered the Operation: Thor's Hammer and sent TCS Tiger's Claw to assist.
Every year to celebrate Goddard's birthday, 12000 rockets are fired. The colony exports 75000 kiloliters of Goddard Special yearly, its "national drink"
