Ships of the class
- USS Goddard (NCC-59621)
Information on this class designation was originally derived from an okudagram described as a Starship mission status that was displayed in the observation lounge starting around TNG Season 4 and was originally described in the Star Trek Encyclopedia.
This class was probably after spacecraft designer Sergey Pavlovich Korolev, a key figure in the early Russian space program who created the Soyuz spacecraft and started the space race. (Star Trek Encyclopedia 2nd ed., p. 174)
