The Starfleet Citation for Conspicuous Gallantry was an award honoring an act of special heroism by a member of Starfleet.
Captain James T. Kirk received this citation from Chief Weapons Officer Aldous Kramer during his 2250s service aboard USS Farragut, when Kirk saved nine people (including Kramer) after a premature weapon detonation took out most of Farragut's starboard pod. This citation was among the abbreviated list of Kirk's decorations read at his court martial in 2267. (TOS novel: The Kobayashi Maru; TOS episode: "Court Martial")
Lieutenant Sam Fuller, Ensigns Jon Anderson, Luis Benitez, Leslie Parrish, and the rest of their security squad received this citation for their actions in System 1324 against the Orions. (TOS - Errand of Vengeance novel: The Edge of the Sword)
Lieutenant David McAllan and Crewpersons Stephen Drew and Claire Eddy, all of the USS da Vinci, were posthumously awarded this citation for their self-sacrificing actions during the crisis at Galvan VI. (SCE eBook: Wildfire, Book 2)
