The Citation of Conspicuous Gallantry was an award given to members of the United Federation of Planets.

Created on Stardate 1/4010 by Starfleet Command, the Citation commended the acts of heroism in the defense of the Federation citizens as well as their property in which the recipient disregarded a clear risk for their personal safety. It took the appearance of a small emerald triangle with three diamonds in the middle and a silver semicircular bar above. Inscribed on it were the words "For Gallantry".

Lieutenant David Manchester of the USS Wellington was the latest individual to receive this award. He was given the medal on Stardate 3/0405.17 after he offered himself as a hostage to a group of Klingon renegades in exchange for the release of 25 Federation civilians on Valoria. Lieutenant Manchester endured severe torture and mistreatment at the hands of his kidnappers before he was rescued. (FASA RPG module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual)
