Medal Name Description Image
Medal of Valor The Medal of Valor is the highest medal awarded by the United Federation of Planets.

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.
