Recipients of the Christopher Pike Medal of Valor have demonstrated their value to the whole Fleet through extreme dedication to one or more specific aspects of the organization. This can include service as a member of the Admiralty, or service on a major Fleet project. It is often awarded to those who have shown themselves to truly bring something new to their given position. However, their actions are not to be solely consigned to their specific Task Force, but instead, must show that they have had an impact outside of their respective work. One who receives this medal will be known to the Fleet at large, their impressive array of work standing the test of time.
