The Palm Leaf of Axanar Peace Mission was a commendation given to Starfleet officers for their participation in the successful peace mission to the planet Axanar in the mid-23rd century.

Enterprise Captain James T. Kirk was awarded the Palm Leaf of Axanar Peace Mission early in his career. It was among his many commendations cited by the computer during Kirk's court martial in 2267. (TOS: "Court Martial")

In the final draft and revised final draft of the script for "Court Martial" (dated 26 and 29 September 1966 respectively), the name of this commendation was formatted "Palm leaf of Axanar peace mission". However, it was formatted "Palm Leaf of Axanar Peace Mission" in a series of research notes that Kellam de Forest sent Gene Roddenberry, primarily concerning "Whom Gods Destroy" (the document was dated 10 September 1968).
