    I did not know this was an option. Thank you for the info.

    Thank you for sharing!

  3. LOL cool! – would be even more popular if available in all the famous captain voices… perhaps the ability to make our own avatars into “captain” form! 🙂

      I like that Knikkolette, a Star Trek WordPress theme. There’s a nice idea for a theme builder. 😉 Beam me up Scotty.

  4. I love your tutorials … even (in this case) if I don’t use Google calendar! I find there are always snippets that relate to other Google products, for example, that serve me well …

      I’m a little late on my relies Sharon but thank you for the comment. I’d be in pretty bad shape without Google calendar myself.

  5. I love it, thanks Brian, just set up my calander to the Stardates, looks brilliant, be interesting to see what it does when I log in on my tablet etc 😉

      Good deal Karen, I didn’t even think of that. I’ll have to check out on my nook. 🙂

      • I was hoping my Nexus 7 would display the Stardates in it’s calendar, but sadly it doesn’t 🙁

    I love this calendar. Only problem is I can’t find anywhere that devines how this stardate works. It doesn’t follow any of the diverse ideas I have looked up for different stardates

      Thanks, Jeff, I think it’s only for fun. I ran into the same issue after I wrote this post. I don’t think there’s an official “stardate”. It’s just a fictional date system for Star Trek.
