THAT would be AMAZING.

KDF will have newly made holiday... Holiday of sharping Bat'leths, Mak'lets and any other weapon in waiting for all those Romulans, sworn enemies of Klingon Empire, joining their fleets.
Sorry for any mistakes, english isn't my primary language.

If I'm not mistaking there is a founding of the federation day or something along that line.

Yes actually. Though no one can agree what that day actually is.

I imagine it would be a combination of the 4th of July and Cinco de Mayo. BBQ'ed Tacos for all.

Nice idea here. An authentic Klingon event would be a nice change of pace.

Except for one thing.

Qo'noS is not Earth, the problem I have with commemorative dates is that you are assuming they are using the gregorian calendar and fixed dates, this is not true even on Earth as Easter is a example because the observance is based on a Lunar calendar.

Second, the problem is its not very likely a "day" and a "year" that can be directly translated into Earth own definitions of day and year as such planets would have to have the exact same orbit around their sun as Earth does with Sol and taking the exact same time as Earth does of turning around its own axis.

Chances of that happening are about nil.

Simply put, if you think calling someone in Europe is a problem because Timezones wait until we get colonies outside Earth.

I am only saying this because as "alien holidays are nice" they are also something you cannot just stick on the gregorian calendar.

This is a video game. You can program something to happen every 426.5376 earth days.

Just ignore the "date" or better yet call it a wild coincidence. Suspend your disbelief if you will ... we do it all the time with all the absurd things in this game. We need diversity in this game not more Fed clones.

Just a nitpick because it bugs me.

Also I suppose this is why they rather not use alien holidays beyond the occasional one as if someone ever commits something like a calendar it creates problems (heck look at DS9 and the whole Alpha/Beta Quadrant deal wit charts) and since it not really important to set the date in a direct translation.

Should be no problem as they come up with new holidays all the time in the RW.

By Star Treks time no one would work ever as all 365 days would now be considered holidays.

A holiday used to have to have meaning, now it's just an excuse to have a day off.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.
