Medal ish repeat

This was a special award inspired by the actions of Lando Calrissian and Wedge Antilles.  The Alliance couldn't give them the regular Medal of Holy Crap That Was Some Insane Ish You Pulled That Will Never Be Duplicated! because, well, they were pretty much duplicating what was done once beforeLuke Skywalker and Han Solo (but not Chewbacca) had already blown up a Death Star, so as cool as it was, it wasn't anything new.  So the Alliance made this new medal, which is still pretty damn prestigious.

Notable Recipients

"For Some Insane stuff that was actually done before but still was pretty insane, Lando Calrissian is awarded this recognition.  He was cool under fire, and without any co-pilot of any kind, flew the Millenium Falcon into the partially completed but fully armed and operational (say this part in creepy Emperor voice for effect) Death Star, and delivered some ordinance into the reactor core, which caused a really big explosion.  Lando (with no co-pilot) then flew out of the Second Death Star just as it was about to blow up, and escaped.  His actions reflect great credit upon himself, smooth operators, and the Alliance."


  • Wedge Antilles (Battle of Endor)

"After wussing out at both the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Hoth, Wedge finally grabbed his sack and finished a battle like a man this time, and plunged into the depths fo the Second Death Star at the Battle of Endor.  Wedge managed to not die, and he reached the reactor core in time to disable it's shielding mechanism.  Wedge had a small Yavin flashback, and got the hell out of there before he could ensure the job was complete, but he swears he was crossing his fingers, so we believe him.  Anyway, his efforts allowed his fellow pilot the opportunity to delivery the firepower necessary to destroy the core.  Wedge then partied with the cute teddy bears.  For his actions at Endor, Wedge brings great honor upon himself and the Alliance.


Trivia

  • Nien Nunb was Lando's co-pilot in the Falcon, but just like Chewbacca, the racist Mon Mothma refused to give him this award.  Fewer people cared, because Nunb was a blubbering drooling fool, and couldn't rip anyone's arms out of their sockets.
  • Some people call this award the "Wedgie", because it's really long and hard to remember.
