This was awarded to Alliance pilots that flew pretty bravely during battle, even if their efforts resulted in minimal postive gain.
"For flying pretty bravely with the intent of doing serious damage to the Imperial Forces at the Battle of Yavin, Bren Quersey gets this award. He had every intention of blowing up lots of TIE fighters. He even managed to graze one on the wing, which certainly must have annoyed the pilot. Sadly, Bren was then destroyed by another TIE. Well, he tried, and he meant well. Good job, Bren!"
