There were three versions of the medal, which differed only in the metal used to create it: bronze, silver, and gold. The bronze version was awarded to pilots who completed training relating to the TIE/LN's basic weapons systems/dogfight capabilities as well as working within a squadron. The silver version was awarded to pilots who completed training relating to the above as well as a reenactment of an operation relating to the destruction of a Rebel depot. The gold version was presented to pilots who completed the above training operations as well as a reenactment of a mission to destroy a Rebel-aligned probe.
Maarek Stele received all three versions of this medal after completing the training ops relating to the TIE/LN when he was freshly recruited.
