Star Trek: A Call To Duty
Starship Dedication Plaques

Original Plaque Design:  Robert Siwiak

Last Updates: 02/24/2008 by Bob Baldwin & the current ASDB Team

If you're hoping to have somebody make a dedication plaque for you, then you need to understand that a lot of work goes into making something that can hold true to the plaques we've all seen on the various starships of the Star Trek Universe. On this page, you'll find links to download templates to the dedication plaques officially used by ST: ACTD for its starships and stations. While official plaques for our ships and stations will be created and/or authorized by the ASDB, the template is being made available to the public for usage in other RPGs and Star Trek-related activities.

Your authorization to use these templates depends on the following of one simple rule... that you clearly give ST:ACTD credit for the creation of the template and provide a link to ST:ACTD, nothing more. We're not asking for a large banner link, we're not demanding that an ST:ACTD logo be displayed in ten foot tall letters on your ship's website. The link consists of this:

"The dedication plaque present on this website was 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."

This should be placed either at the bottom of the page on which the plaque appears, or in a suitable location on your website specifically designed to give credit to any borrowed materials. Yes, it's that simple... and what's more, you're doing it with our permission. We’re taking a great risk making this available to people, for there'll undoubtedly be those few who try to steal our work and claim it as their own by not giving proper credit. If it is found that a vast majority of people steal these plaque templates, rest assured... any future such materials that the ASDB team create will not be made available to the public. The only exception to the copyright statement is for official ST:ACTD starship and station websites that are using the plaque created and displayed on the main ASDB Plaque webpage.

Now, on to how the template works. You must have a copy of Adobe Photoshop 6.0 or greater, though it is recommended you have at least version 7.0. Adequate knowledge of Photoshop is required in order to make the plaque work for your particular starship, and please do NOT ask the ASDB for tutorials on how to use the program. This template is provided as is, and we offer no assistance in your usage of it other then providing a means for you to download it from us. The template essentially consists of a plaque background with multiple text layers on top of it, which you may edit to fit your particular ship or station. Three Starfleet emblems are available to be displayed at the top, the default being the most recent arrowhead used on the TNG movies, DS-9, and Voyager. You may use the file freely to create whatever it is you wish, provided the aforementioned template credit is given. Use the "Save for Web" option in Photoshop to export the image as a .jpg or .gif file for usage on your website.

If you're interested in making improvements to the plaque, please contact us and we'll gladly host the file if we find it to be of higher quality then what we have available here.


Starship Plaque
Station Plaque
Yacht Plaque
ITC Garamond Font (required)

Three plaques are available for download, as well as a required font to properly create an authenticate look. In my experience, those users currently running Windows XP should already have this font installed by default. Those who don't will encounter a message in Photoshop asking for a substitute font, in which case you'll have to download the font file and unzip it into your C:\Windows\Fonts folder.

Please note that this template will only work in Adobe Photoshop, and not other programs such as Paint Shop Pro or Microsoft Paint. Requests to have plaques created (unless for ST:ACTD purposes) will unfortunately go unanswered.
