- "For bravery far beyond the call of duty, you have been awarded the Star of Alderaan. Magnificent flying, Azameen."
The Star of Alderaan was a citation granted by the Rebel Alliance and named in honor of Alderaan. The award commemorated the role played by Alderaan and its leader, Bail Prestor Organa, in the creation of the Alliance.
Established after the destruction of Alderaan and presented by an Alderaanian survivor, the Star of Alderaan was given for bravery in wartime operations when the action is thought insufficient to receive a Corellian Cross. Mon Mothma defined its prerequisite as "a person who, while serving in any capacity in the Alliance military, is cited for gallantry in action against an enemy of the Alliance while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing force, or while with friendly foreign forces in armed conflict with an enemy."
