This medal has been awarded for Knowing Your Enemies.
The Ensign studies the intricacies of the pirate factions that occupy the NCA. To survive as a Space Ranger, you must know your enemy. Brooksea mercenaries, Xanorra slavers, and Junker scavengers approach piracy separately. Understanding how each faction operates will keep you alive to fight another day.
The Medal of Spirit is given to those who embody the honor-bound ideas of both the Commonwealth and the Union. Though once separate entities, both superpowers are now intertwined in an unbreakable bond of brotherhood. The Medal of Spirit reflects the pilots who best represent the Ranger creed, “Deletum in Servio / Renati in Fratrum.”
