(U) Order of Awards by Precedence

Star of Terra (Gold star on a blood red neck ribbon)
The President of the SA may award a medal of honor of appropriate design, with ribbons and appurtenances, to a person who while a member of the Systems Alliance Armed Forces, distinguished themselves conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of their life above and beyond the call of duty. This is the highest award of the SA, and conveys enormous respect. Confers class V citizenship.
Star of Sol (Silver star on an Alliance blue neck ribbon)
The Parliament of the SA may award a medal of honor of appropriate design, with ribbons and appurtenances, to a person who while a member of the Systems Alliance Armed Forces, displays such gallantry, determination, and esprit de corps in accomplishing their mission under extremely difficult and hazardous conditions so as to set them apart from and above other personnel participating in the same campaign.
United Military Service Star (black steel star on a white neck ribbon)
Awarded by command level staff to a soldier whose actions 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. It is the highest honor a soldier can receive for an act of valor in a non-combat situation.
