There are two different types
of medals given to the Imperial Order Officers. The Medals of Merit are
given out for outstanding performance for the Empire, while the Battle
Medals are awarded for taking part in the Imperial Order Battles. Additionaly
there are a few Medals only given out by the Dark Jedi Order. These Dark
Jedi Order medals are not listed here.
Medals of Merit are given out for many
different reasons, but all center around an officer's ability, dedication,
and determination to their work and to excel in that work. The following
medals are categorized in order from highest to lowest and a brief description
is provided for each medal. The medals themselves can be found in the Merit
Medal section of the IO Flight Office.
Battle medals are
awarded to pilots and officers upon completion of an Imperial Order Battle.
Once a pilot file for that battle is submitted to the commanding officer,
the CO verifies the completion and awards the member with a battle medal
for whichever Battle was completed.
