The Star Cross is a medal that bridges the gap between the recognition awards and higher level merit awards. This can also be rewarded for extraordinary amounts of activity in a large-scale competition such as a Fleet Action, where the very best are rewarded for their efforts. However, for those having achieved an outstanding amount of general activity over a longer course of time, this award may also be given to reward such accomplishments.
