The destruction of the Goliath may not have been strickly a suicide run.  I see that action as being the last strike of a steady campaign to weaken the Goliath and whatever fleet it led.  Possibly a last ditch desperation move to finish off the first (confirmed) Orion destroyed in combat.

I know there is a method, but all I see is madness.

They were low on supplies and had no base to run to. Go read through the FS1 Command Briefings.
Indeed, they were in a Terran-held system cut off from all supplies and reinforcements, and they had just been attacked by another force. They were running, happened across a Fenris with minimal escort, and thought they'd capitalise on the situation to regain their honor... or something. The presence of a much larger force of fighters than the Orff's measly patrol is due to gameplay, not any specific hint at the Zod's overall tactical nature.

Very true about honor. I mean, really, even a suicide attack against a Fenris and its escort is certainly more honorable than running scared and eventually dying when the fighter breaks down.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

The whole honor thing is big with the Vasudans. I mean, the PVC Taurus and the two remaining strike squads could've just warped out of the system rather than attack the Plato (and get wiped out by the 'Unknowns'). Note that those Vasudan fighters that attacked the Orff, and all of the other fighterwings at the time except the Shivan ones, did not have inter-system subspace drives.

They had already developed cups and cup holders along with Flak, Beam Cannons, etc. by the time of FS2. :nod:
