I was intrigued recently by the 'Christopher Pike Medal of Valour' awarded to Captain Sisko in the episode 'Tears of the Prophets'. The citation was for his bravey in the battle to retake Deep Space Nine earlier in the year. Curious, why wouldn't the entire Defiant crew receive a similar commendation? They all put their lives on the line as well. Also, were any comparisons ever made to present day US Military medals? This calibre of medal would seem to be in the same category as the Medal of Honor.
