Award snafu

Um, "Legate" is a pretty good indication that this is a Cardassian award; I'm not aware of any non-Cardassian Legates. That said, Pike getting a Cardassian award seems inconsistent with what we know about early Federation-Cardassian contact(though I suppose anything is possible). So, I don't know.

It seems clear that the writers/designers just took some award names(possibly from here) for his personnel file, especially since he got a Carrington Award. 31dot (talk) 16:31, February 4, 2019 (UTC)

Yeah. If there a such thing as being too awesome, Pike must be it. --Alan (talk) 16:47, February 4, 2019 (UTC)
We don't really know anything about early Federation-Cardassian relation especially given that this was likely before the military regime. JagoAndLitefoot (talk) 20:29, February 4, 2019 (UTC)
Legate is an Earth term in real life as well, it's not like the term is completely invented. My thinking in changing this to not outright state that it is Cardassian was that it was not outright stated on-screen, and we now have as many non-Cardassian as Cardassian recipients. That being said, Pike's award list actually also contains a second award associated with Cardassia. But really, we've seen this same kind of sloppiness with in-jokes since season one. -- Capricorn (talk) 19:19, February 5, 2019 (UTC)
