Dedication Plaques
 
So since I was bored I started making Dedication Plaque images for my in-game ships. Or at least the ones I could remember the details for; sadly the USS Aries' registry number has been lost to the mists of time, so...

That said, I guess I'd better get the copyright stuff out of the way first; The dedication plaques present in this thread were created using a template for the online RPG Star Trek: A Call to Duty. If you wish to obtain your own template, please visit ST:ACTD's Advanced Starship Design Bureau.

Now that the formalities are over with...

USS Takamachi (NCC-93542)

USS Lanster (NCC-26519)

USS Yagami (NCC-92919)

USS Testarossa (NCC-98415)

Although I guess I need to make an addendum that the Lanster's Registry is its "canon" one, since it's outside the range allowed by the game. >.<

Updated with USS Yagami, so I'm up to date on all the ships I've had so far now.

Or not, as the case may be, since I finally hit Captain today and picked up a new ship.

I think things like these are a work of beauty and art.

I've piddled around around with ST:ACtD's templates as well and have tried to add a few personal touches to some of the ones I've been working on.

If you want, I can send you some of the varients and modifications I've worked with on mine to add a little bit of variation to your pool of resources for yours.

I can post examples of how mine have changed over time as I've incoporated variations if wanted.

I see lots of plaques there, but no templates for making my own. :confused:

The Starfleet insignia should be the STO one, not the one from the 2370s, however they do look good.

That's a good point, but if you run the stardates through a calculator, none of them should come out as being commissioned earlier than 2385. So using the 2370s insignia makes a bit more sense.

I thought it was one of the pages linked to up there. >.< Here's the page with the PSD file on it.

Thanks. :)

One final question: I want to use the plaque in my forum signature. Do I have to include the whole "the dedication plaque present on this website was created using a template for..." etc, or can I just say something like "plaque courtesy of ST:ACTD" and include a link to the website?
