The Grankite Order of Tactics was a Starfleet insignia awarded to new members of the Grankite Order. This order recognized officers who demonstrated exceptional tactical acumen.

James T. Kirk received this award in the mid-23rd century, achieving class of excellence by 2267. (TOS: "Court Martial")

Holodeck simulation – Captain Riker Edit

Grankite Order of Tactics (Class of Excellence) in Riker's service record

In 2367, while exploring a cavern on Alpha Onias III, Commander William T. Riker was rendered unconscious by gases. While unconscious, neural scanners scanned Riker's brain. The scanners used elements of Riker's reality and constructed a holodeck simulation with those elements interspersed throughout, so that it felt real to him. What Riker wanted, the scanners made possible.

In one of these simulations, on stardate 46179, Commander Riker was awarded the Grankite Order of Tactics (Class of Excellence) for his role in the Zavolta Planetary Geosciences Survey Expedition. In 2383, this insignia was mentioned in Riker's service record that was on display in his quarters on the Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Future Imperfect", okudagram)

Grankite order of tactics

A Grankite Order of Tactics awarded to Jean-Luc Picard

Captain Jean-Luc Picard was awarded the Grankite Order of Tactics, Class of Excellence, for "
recognition of his development of the Picard Maneuver during the 'Battle of Maxia' while in command of the USS Stargazer." This certificate was in the Picard family album, created for Star Trek Generations; however, the certificate was not seen in the film.
In the final draft script of "Court Martial", the name of this award was rendered "Grankite order of tactics", though the revised final draft of the script changed this to "Grankite order of tactic", which is also how the name is pronounced (by computer voice) in the episode itself. However, both the service record from "Future Imperfect" and the Picard family album pluralize the final word in the name.
For the remastered episode of "Future Imperfect", the original text of Riker's service record was replaced.
