USS Mississippi NCC-80006 Crew Awards
  Crew Awards (In Order of Precedence)
 


Starfleet Medal of Honor
  The Medal of Honor is awarded by the President, in the name of the Federation Council, to a person who, while a member of Starfleet, distinguishes himself or herself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged 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 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 or her 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.

Awarded by the Federation President.
 

Starfleet Cross
  The Starfleet Cross may be awarded to any person who, while serving with Starfleet or the Marine Corps, distinguishes himself in action by extraordinary heroism not justifying an award of the Medal of Honor. The action must take place under one of three circumstances: while engaged 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 an armed conflict in which the United Federation of Planets is not a belligerent party. To earn a Starfleet Cross the act to be commended must be performed in the presence of great danger or at great personal risk and must be performed in such a manner as to render the individual highly conspicuous among others of equal grade, rate, experience, or position of responsibility. An accumulation of minor acts of heroism does not justify an award of the Starfleet Cross.

Awarded by the Secretary of Defense.
 

Defense Distinguished Service Medal
  The Defense Distinguished Service Medal is awarded for exceptionally distinguished performance of duty contributing to Federation Security or Defense at the highest levels while assigned to a joint activity. The DDSM may also be awarded to other senior officers whose direct and individual contributions to Federation Security or Defense are recognized as being so exceptional in scope and value as to be equivalent to contributions normally associated with positions encompassing broader responsibilities. Normally, such responsibilities deserving of the Defense Distinguished Service Medal are held by the most senior officers such as the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Chiefs and Vice Chiefs of the Services, and Commanders and Deputy Commanders of the Unified Commands whose duties bring them into direct contact with the Secretary of Starfleet and other senior officials.

Awarded by the Secretary of Defense.
 

Starfleet Distinguished Service Medal
The Starfleet Distinguished Service Medal is bestowed upon members of the Fleet or Marine Corps who distinguish themselves by exceptionally meritorious service to the United Federation of Planets in a duty of great responsibility. The term “great responsibility” implies senior military responsibility, and the decoration is normally only bestowed to senior Flag and Marine Corps General Officers. The decoration is rarely awarded to enlisted personnel, and then only to those who hold extremely senior enlisted positions such as the Master Chief Petty Officer of Starfleet.

Awarded by the Secretary of Starfleet.
