STAR FLEET AWARDS

Medal of Valor

The Medal of Valor is the highest medal awarded by the United Federation of Planets. The Medal of Valor is awarded by the President in the name of Federation Council to a person who distinguishes himself or herself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United Federation of Planets; while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force; or while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United Federation of Planets is not a belligerent party. The deed performed must have been one of personal bravery or self-sacrifice so conspicuous as to clearly distinguish the individual above his comrades and must have involved risk of life. Incontestable proof of the performance of the service will be exacted and each recommendation for the award of this decoration will be considered on the standard of extraordinary merit.

Star Fleet Cross (Golden Nebula)

The Star Fleet Cross is awarded to officers and enlisted personnel of Star Fleet and the Marine Corps who distinguish themselves by extraordinary heroism, not justifying the award of the Medal of Valor, in military operations against and armed enemy.

Latinum Star

The Latinum Star is awarded to officers who, while serving in the armed forced of the United Federation of Planets, led Federation forces to victory in military operations against and armed enemy and against overwhelming odds.

Star Fleet Medal

The Star Fleet Medal is awarded to any person of the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets or of a friendly foreign nation who, while serving in any capacity with the Star Fleet, distinguished himself or herself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. The same degree of heroism is required as for the award of the Star Fleet Cross. The performance must have involved personal hazard or danger and the voluntary risk of life under conditions not involving conflict with an armed enemy. Awards will not be made solely on the basis of having saved a life.

Distinguished Service Medal

The Distinguished Service Medal is awarded any member of the armed forces who, while serving with the Star Fleet in any capacity, distinguishes themselves by extraordinary service to the United Federation of Planets in a duty of great responsibility. Awarded for combat or non-combat service.

Silver Star

The Silver Star is awarded to a person who, while serving in any capacity with the United Federation of Planets armed forces is cited for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United Federation of Planets while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force, or while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United Federation of Planets is not a belligerent party. The required gallantry, while of a lesser degree than that required for the Star Fleet Cross, must nevertheless have been performed with marked distinction. It is awarded for combat action only, and ranks as the third highest valor decoration of the United Federation of Planets.

Legion of Merit

The Legion of Merit is awarded to any member of the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets or a friendly foreign nation who has distinguished himself or herself by exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements. The recipient must occupy a position of great responsibility and would normally be a high ranking officer of staff or flag rank.

Cross of Alexander

The Cross of Alexander is awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity with the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets, distinguished himself or herself by extraordinary achievement in strategy and tactics. The performance must be evidenced by voluntary action above and beyond the call of duty. The extraordinary achievement must have resulted in an accomplishment so exceptional and outstanding as to clearly set the individual apart from his or her comrades or from other persons in similar circumstances. Awards will be made only to recognize single acts of heroism or extraordinary achievement and will not be made in recognition of sustained operational activities against an armed enemy.

Bronze Star Medal

The Bronze Star Medal is awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity in or with the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets, distinguished himself or herself by heroic or meritorious achievement or service in connection with military operations against an armed enemy; or while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing armed force in which the United Federation of Planets is not a belligerent party.

Star of Hope

The Star of Hope is awarded for combat action only, and is awarded to any person wounded in action while serving the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets. It is only awarded posthumously.

Pike Medallion for Heroic Injury (Wounded Lion)

The Wounded Lion is awarded for combat action only, and is awarded to any person wounded in action while serving the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets. It is not awarded posthumously.

Meritorious Service Medal

The Meritorious Service Medal is awarded to any member of the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets or to any member of the armed forces of a friendly foreign nation who, while serving in a noncombat area has distinguished himself or herself by outstanding meritorious achievement or service.

Star Fleet Commendation Medal

The Star Fleet Commendation Ribbon is awarded to any junior officer or enlisted person of the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets who distinguishes himself or herself by heroism, outstanding achievement or meritorious service. This medal has often been awarded for life saving, in place of the medals originally created for that purpose.

Star Fleet Achievement Medal

The Star Fleet achievement is awarded to any junior officer or enlisted member of the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets, or to any member of the armed forces of a friendly foreign nation, who while serving in any capacity with the Star Fleet distinguishes himself or herself by outstanding professional achievement or for leadership.

Combat Action Ribbon

This ribbon is awarded to members of the armed forces of the United Federation of Planets for combat action service. The principal requirement is that the personnel must have been in a ground or space combat fire-fight, or action during which they were under enemy fire, and that their performance under fire must have been satisfactory.

Prisoner of War Medal

The POW Medal is issued only to any person who was taken prisoner or held captive while engaged in action against an enemy of the United Federation of Planets, or while serving with friendly forces engaged in armed conflict. The recipient's conduct, while in captivity, must have been honorable.

FEDERATION AWARDS

Medal of Freedom

The Medal of Freedom is awarded for significant new discoveries or efforts which substantially advance the areas of science, engineering, medicine, and diplomacy.

Gold Lifesaving Medal

This medal is awarded to any person who rescues, or endeavours to rescue, any other person from harm. The rescue must have been at the risk of the rescuer's own life, with evidence of extreme and heroic daring.

Medal for Merit (Zephram Cochrane, Hikaru Sulu, Noonian Soong, Leonard McCoy, and Sarek Medals)

These medals are awarded for innovative use of existing engineering, exploration, scientific, medical, or diplomatic knowledge to solve a problem.

Silver Lifesaving Medal

This medal is awarded to any person who rescues, or endeavours to rescue, any other person from harm. The Silver Medal differs from the Gold Lifesaving Medal in that the act need not involve the degree of heroism and risk called for in the Gold Medal.

UNIT AWARDS

Star Fleet Unit Citation

This is awarded by the Commander-in-Chief of Star Fleet in the name of the President, to any United Federation of Planet armed forces unit for outstanding performance in the service of the United Federation of Planets.

Fleet Unit Commendation

This unit commendation is conferred on any United Federation of Planet armed forces unit which distinguished itself by outstanding heroism or extremely meritorious service, but not sufficient to warrant award of the Star Fleet Unit Citation.

Meritorious Unit Commendation

This unit commendation is conferred on any United Federation of Planet armed forces unit which distinguished itself by either valorous or meritorious achievement considered outstanding when compared to other units performing similar service, but not sufficient to justify award of the Fleet Unit Commendation.
