Awards, Honors, and the Iron Cogs of SCUL

Ops Manual 12.13: Honors

SCUL honors were referred to as BADDVIPS (an anagram form the original honors) medals until stardate 100901. A pilot can accrue any number of each of these medals. Once a pilot has ten or more of one honor, the medal becomes brass. Medals can be awarded by any pilot, and any pilot may decline medals.


Destroy an object so horribly that pilots pause in awe and reflection.


Construct a ship and complete an official mission without a mechanical.

Flying Ace

Win five derbies in one season, and you get one of these beauties.


Given to pilots who 'seriously bring it' via costume or ship decoration.


This Medal is given to a host who has successfully assisted their cadet to completion of their training and are knighted.


Finally a medal you can buy your way into! Do something to support SCUL, either financially or creatively.


A medal for the clever field repair that saves the mission.


The 'Purple Heart' of SCUL, scaled to your pain threshold.


Do something super brave.


Typically for navigating a ship with a very poor thrust rating into a negi g-well or other gargantuan acts of stupidity.

Black Ops

Awarded for excessive ninja-on-submarine excellence during crucial silent-running situations.

Ops Manual 12.14: Long-Range-Mission Medals

Travelling to distant galaxies is worthy of merit, and possibly sometherapy and muscle-relaxants.

Century Medal

Any pilot who completes a one hundred light year mission without significant rest gets a coveted Century Medal.

Intergalactic Medal

Any pilot who does a multi-day mission crossing over Galactic Borders gets the Intergalactic Medal.

Interuniversal Medal

Eventually someone always takes things to the next level and pilots their ship to Canada. Voulez-vous WOO-HOO! (times two!)

12.15: Cog Awards

Cog awards are only given at the end of a season. They are SCUL's most prestigious awards. Don't let it get to your head, maggot! A pilot may only have one cog status at a time.

Stone Cog

Typically five of these honors go to pilots who have the spirit of SCUL coursing through their veins, and the song of SCUL beating in their heart. We use a stethoscope to find out.

Bronze Cog

Typically three pilots may receive this award per season. These pilots have gone wellabove the call of 'dootie'.

The Iron Cog

Typically only one pilot receives the highest honor in SCUL—the Iron Cog. This pilot serves as a role model to maggot and Admiral alike. Oops! You're a role model. Guess you'd better start to pretend to behave yourself!
