Interesting... I'm investigating this now.

Google Calendars gives three different types of links to share Calendars.

The HTML links are actual separate web pages for the individual calendars that you can view without signing in to Google Calendar.

The XML links look like they may actually be for RSS feeds like Google Reader or other RSS readers. (I'm not sure how a Calendar subscribed via an RSS reader would look)

There is also an iCal link that I had not previously added here because 1) that would be a THIRD link and probably confusing, and 2) it looks like something intended for Apple products.

It appears that the way that "add a friend's calendar" option is supposed to work is that you enter a contact's email address, and you can see and add any of that account's public calendars to your own Google Calendar, which I don't think I'm actually prepared to do here and now.

There are other instructions for using the iCal links to subscribe to various calendars, which I will post here:

To add a calendar using its address, follow these steps:
  1. Click the down-arrow next to Other calendars
  2. Select Add by URL from the menu
  3. Find the address of the Google Calendar in iCalendar format, or if you have the iCalendar address of a calendar from a different application (for example, Apple's iCal), you can use this as well.
  4. Enter the address in the field provided
  5. Click the Add Calendar button. The calendar will appear in the Other Calendars section of the calendar list to the left.
And with that, here are the various links to the STO SubSpace Agenda calendars, updated with iCal links to subscribe:
  • STO General Calendar (HTML to view) (iCal to subscribe)(XML for RSS)
    • This calendar contains the General Events going on in-game such as Featured Episodes, HOLODECK and TRIBBLE (and possibly REDSHIRT) server updates, as well as updates to the C-Store.
  • STO Community Events (HTML to view) (iCal to subscribe) (XML for RSS)
    • These are the various in-game community events and community-based announcements
  • STO Group Events (HTML to view) (iCal to subscribe) (XML for RSS)
    • These are the various events based around group activity (5-players & up), such as STFs, Defera Borg Invasions, Mirror Universe Incursions, and The Vault event.
  • STO Dilithium Gathering Events (HTML to view) (iCal to subscribe) (XML for RSS])
    • These are events where the primary reward is Dilithium, or a bonus amount of Dilithium. This includes but is not limited to the Academy Events, the Dilithium Mining Event, and Foundry Officer Reports.
  • STO Miscellaneous Events (HTML to view) (iCal to subscribe) (XML for RSS)
    • These are events that aren't well classified into any of the other categories.

I'll be updating the OP with these new instructions and links.

EDIT: Also, I'm not sure why the forum keeps inserting a space between the "google" and the ".com" in the STO Community Events's iCal link. I've re-copied it twice and even tried manually re-typing it and for some reason the forum keeps inserting a space there. If you're trying to subscribe to that specific calendar, just remove the extraneous space in there for now.

EDIT2: UPDATE: Ok, fixed the link. I missed an opening url tag bracket. Still odd that it was inserting that space in the address though.
