The Goderich system was colonized during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra.[4][5]

Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Goderich was invaded during the second half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2791.[11] By 2797 Goderich was home to the remains of three regiments who had withdrawn from Kentares or systems nearby: the Third Deneb Light Cavalry, the Seventh Crucis Lancers and the Twentieth Syrtis Fusiliers. When word reached Goderich of the massacre being conducted on Kentares IV by Coordinator Jinjiro Kurita, the three regiments became the first Armed Forces of the Federated Suns units to break ranks and launch furious, vengeance-driven attacks against nearby Combine forces, beginning in October 2797. Other units were soon doing the same, and by November the vengeful AFFS units had broken through the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery defenses on both Logandale and Marlette, returning both systems to Federated Suns control. This was the beginning of a resurgence across the AFFS that would eventually lead to the Combine invasion being turned back, and the majority of the conquered Federation worlds being liberated.[12]
