The Medal of Redemption was an Imperial starfighter pilot medal awarded in the wake of the Battle of Hoth - the Imperial Navy's redemption for their previous failure to defend the Death Star. It was awarded for completing one tour of duty. Maarek Stele specifically was presented with the medal for his actions at preventing any Rebels from using high-traffic lanes to blend in in the aftermath of Hoth.
The ribbon was primarily red, with a blue stripe at the center that splits into four nearing the top in a manner similar to a fan. The medal itself was gold, with six bars jutting out, three on each side, plus two silver-colored mandibles at the bottom. At the center of the medal was a blue gem that featured the Imperial Crest emblazoned in gold.
