Introduction

The UF Starfleet Awards Program was created to recognise our members who have distinguished themselves within our organization by constantly setting a standard and excelling in their duties.

Please review the submission guidelines to nominate your fellow members for awards

Also note that awards have specific guidelines and are not handed out for “being part of the Fleet” or just “doing your job”. Awards are meant to recognise those members who go above and beyond the call of duty and this is really the keyword here.

Issuance of Awards

All awards are issued at the pleasure of the Commander-in-Chief, United Federation Starfleet.

Recommendations are made via the [|Awards Form] by members of UFS for consideration by the Promotion and Awards Board.

While other members of the Promo/Awards Board have a say, it is ultimately up to the Commander-in-Chief and Deputy Commander in Chief to give awards. Awards are then announced, along with the Promotions.

Citations and Commendations

Citations

These are given out for carrying out regular duties to a regularly high degree of proficiency and ability. They should enhance the running of the ship/staton/branch/Academy, through their regular excellent work. These can be RP or non-RP.

They are the most common award aboard any ship or station.

Examples include:

  • Citation for Exemplary Service
  • Citation for Leadership
  • Citation for Excellence in Duty
  • Citation for Excellence in Fleet Tactics
  • Citation for Exceptional Skill
  • Commendation for Loyalty
  • Commendation for Outstanding Service

Citations do not come with Ribbons or medals just a mention on the service Jackets

Commendations

These are given out for carrying out duties to high degree of ability and showing creativity in them, such as finding new ways to do things, to direct things, or to impact RP. These focus on what the person has brought to the organization that enhances it. It doesn’t have to be a huge change, but just things that are advancements to make the organziation/roleplay/duty stations better.

Ie. The security officer who comes up with a tactics manual to be used on their ship/station. The Academy instructor who comes up with a useful new class. The Science officer who finds a new way to approach a problem in RP and manages a unique angle and solve that still makes sense.

Clustering System

When a decoration is awarded more than once to a particular crewmember, a second medal is not awarded, instead a cluster is earned.

Clusters are small devices of either bronze, silver, or gold. Each bronze cluster represents a duplicate award, with bronze clusters being the only ones that take the actual award into consideration during the counting process.. In other words, the first time one received an award, it would be plain without any clustering devices on top. On a duplicate award of the same decoration, one would get a single bronze cluster. On yet another award of that decoration, another bronze cluster would be awarded. So someone possessing a decoration with two bronze clusters would actually have been awarded that particular award 3 times.

At five awards, the award itself ceases to be counted and instead earns a silver cluster. Thus any decoration with a silver cluster denotes five awards, not six. On the rare chance that a sixth decoration would be awarded, that crewmember would receive a bronze cluster but it is considered bad form to mix cluster types. Most would wait until their tenth such award and then wear a second silver cluster.

It should be noted that certain decorations such as citations and major and minor commendations may be awarded many, many times during a career. In that event, a gold cluster can be worn to represent twenty awards. Once a crewmember earns a gold cluster, they will typically refrain from further clustering until twenty more decorations have been earned, taking then another gold cluster.
