The Cinnabar Star was a prestigious decoration in the Republic of Cinnabar.

The Cinnabar Star was the highest gallantry award which could be granted to commissioned officers of the Republic of Cinnabar Navy (Warrant Officers and enlisted personnel could be awarded the RCN Star in similar circumstances). It was a deliberately obscure medal, no bigger than a man’s thumbnail. The Cinnabar Star was a five-pointed star of red enamel mounted on a gold roundel.7:2

Adele Mundy received it in the Main Lecture Hall of the Celsus Library in 5151 CE, in front of numerous senators as well as her shipmates.7:Ep

The second award of the star was signified by adding a wreath to the medal.6:Ep
