United Federation of Planets Awards
Federation Medal of Honor
The Federation Medal of Honor is the highest award in the entire Federation. It is given in the name of the Federation Council to persons who distinguish themselves by extreme bravery, risking their lives above and beyond the call of duty, while in actual combat with an enemy of the United Federation of Planets or it's allies.
The Federation Medal of Honor is only awarded in extreme circumstances that go beyond the requirements for the Starfleet Command Medal of Honor. This medal can not be awarded during peacetime.
Federation Medal of Valor
The Medal of Valor is awarded for tremendous heroics, but ones that don't quite justify a Federation Medal of Honor. It is given to any person serving with Starfleet when engaged in action with an enemy of the Federation or when serving in conjunction with allied forces engaging opposing enemy forces. The primary difference between this award and the Federation Medal of Honor is the degree of heroism and actions taken.
