The MC80 Home One type Star Cruiser Independence contained an awards auditorium, for awarding its personnel various medals for their service to the Rebel Alliance. Mon Mothma frequently presented the medals to the members of the awarded personnel in person.
It was utilized from 1 BBY to 3 ABY to award the Rebel starfighter pilot Keyan Farlander for his actions in service to the Rebel Alliance in various campaigns, with the exception of the Battle of Yavin and the Star of Alderaan, where he was instead awarded at the Great Temple's Grand Audience Chamber prior to the Royal Award Ceremony.
In addition to the Corellian Cross, Mantooine Medallion, Shield of Yavin, and Talons of Hoth, Farlander had also been presented with the Kalidor Crescent, which he had gradually managed to receive all five embellishments: The Bronze Cluster, the Silver Talons, the Silver Scimitar, the Golden Wings and the Diamond Eyes.
The room was quite spacious, being at least three stories high with floors that can accompany at least two soldiers per upper floor. A large banner extending down to the ground floor from as high as the top of the room was prominently displayed, with the Alliance Starbird being prominently displayed in white contrasting with the primarily blue fabric. Despite the room's size, it was fairly simple, composed of only a small stage and 24 starfighter pilots (12 for each side of the aisle) standing in front of it.
