The Golden Sun was a Terran Confederation military medal. It was awarded for surviving the destruction of one's ship. The medal was only ever awarded once to a pilot in his career.

The recipient was typically warned, before receiving the medal, that the award was a one-time event and that subsequent ejections without justifiable reason would be met with disciplinary action.
