I don't think the copyright disclaimer was written with forum sigs in mind. It was more for people using them on RP websites.

I thought it was one of the pages linked to up there. >.< Here's the page with the PSD file on it.
How's that, 2409 is SD 86xxxx.

Look again. The latest dates on the plaques are in the 60XXX.XX range. Unless you're confusing them with the registries.

But I guess I need to spell it out, so...

USS Takamachi - Commissioned Stardate 60879.46 (Friday 18th November 2383)

USS Yagami - Commissioned Stardate 58602.65 (Saturday 8th August 2381)

USS Lanster - Commissioned Stardate 19460.48 (Thursday 18th June 2342)

USS Testarossa - Commissioned Stardate 60197.28 (Monday 14th March 2383)

Stardates were originally generated using this calculator.

I've piddled and worked up a dedication plaque here and there the last few years, some with the bronze template ACtD has, some a template I found on DeviantArt, and an updated verson of the DeviantArt template I've worked on and tweaked with the help of a friend.

The stardates I run are pulled from ingame logs, and my insignias vary to reflect the deversity in how I like to play my characters.

Bronze ST:ACTD's Template
U.S.S. Arizona NX-98400-G

Second Template, from DeviantArt
U.S.S. West Virginia NCC-200663-A

Third, Altered DeviantArt Template
U.S.S. Atlantis NCC-100385


LIke said before, I am willing to post links the the templates I used for the last two if people want them.

Like said above, this file originally comes from DeviantArt. I don't remember off hand where I put the link at for the parent file, but the one I'm linking to is the updated one I work with.

I don't claim to own the following file, and I do wish I still had the link to the original source.

Link to Plaque Template

Few things to note on how I got the results I did with the Atlantis plate:
  1. The different colors on the marble plate, as well as the wood like backing on the West Virginia's plaque, are obtained by creating fill layers
  2. The 3-Dimentional effects on the Atlanits plaque were made by editing layer styles.
  3. To get the 3D effect on the text, I had to simplify the text layers before editing the layer style.

If there's any questions on manipulating the settings in the file, I'll try to explain what I can to the best of my ability.
