Orders of Merit
Welcome

Each Order of Merit is named based on a cultural aspect that reflects the qualities recognized in the award. Cultures used include Terran, Vulcan and other species.

Each Order has three classes—First, Second, and Third. Generally, an Order of Merit, Third Class will recognize significant achievement at the chapter level, Second Class will recognize significant achievement at the regional level, and First Class will recognize the highest level of achievement to STARFLEET. An Order of Merit, First Class, must have its nomination endorsed by a Regional Coordinator and may only be awarded by majority vote of the STARFLEET Executive Committee.
