The Grankite Order of Honor was a prestigious award given to members of the United Federation of Planets.
It was created on Stardate 1/9802 where its basis was proposed by the Confederation of Tellar and a special order was issued by the Commandant of Starfleet Academy of Starfleet Command. The Grankite Order of honor was a decoration which was awarded to cadets who during their tour of study at Starfleet Academy demonstrated a selfless heroism in support of the Federation and of Starfleet Command. The medal was named in honor of a Tellarite cadet named Grankess 'Lorr who was the first recipient of it. It took the appearance of a small red, blue and gold triangle that was surrounded by Tellarite white laurel leaves.
Cadet Kimberly Calabrese received the award on Stardate 3/1006.5 for her actions in rescuing four of her comrades in a warp micro shuttle training accident near Memory Alpha. She, however, suffered serious injuries as a result of her actions. (FASA RPG module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual)
