There were three versions of the medal, which differed only in the type of metals used to create the medal: bronze, silver, and gold. The bronze version was awarded to those pilots who completed training relating to the Defender's dogfighting capabilities as well as using its tractor beam projector offensively. The silver version was awarded to those pilots who completed training relating to the above as well as a reenactment of an operation dealing inspecting cargo and detaining any Rebel-aligned smugglers. The gold version was presented to those pilots who completed the above training operations as well as a reenactment of a disable and capture mission against a fleet of Rebel escort carriers.
