The Medal of Honor, often referred to as the Federation Council Medal of Honor because the President presents the award "in the name of the Federation Council", is the highest military decoration awarded by the United Federation of Planets. It is bestowed on a member of the Federation military who distinguishes himself or herself "... conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the Federation ...".

Members of all branches of the Federation military are eligible to receive the medal. The Medal of Honor is often presented personally to the recipient or, in the case of posthumous awards, to survivors, by the President of the Federation.
