The graphics are great.
James Southard
All the pictures are horizontal across both sides (what would normally be the top and bottom) of the calendar.

This is a beautiful collection of pictures, but as a calendar it is a disappointment. This is how one month of the calendar is displayed:

1234567891011121314
15161718192021222324
252627282930

or something close. Strings of numbers in 3 rows is not what I expected when I purchased this calendar as a gift.

Additionally, there is no white space to write anything on the calendar, which is one of the main reasons to buy a wall calendar.

Choose something different if you want to actually be able to see the day of the week and the dates in the usual way they are displayed on a typical wall calendar. Choose this calendar only if you want to see beautiful artwork.

Got this for Christmas and was so excited until I opened it up and saw the crappy design.
The images are beautiful. The art is superb, but as a calendar this is a total disaster.

It appears to be like every other calendar out there with a convenient hole to hang it up. When you open it you find that all of the images (again beautiful ones) are landscape oriented spanning across two pages. The "convenient" holes are now on the left and right of the images rather than on the top. How am I supposed to hang this exactly? The space I reserve for my calendar will not accommodate this thing, and now I need a level and two nails?

As if to rub salt in the wound, they also have decided that weeks as we know them no longer apply. Maybe because this is the future? The familiar 4-5 weeks grid we all know and love (or at least are accustomed to) has been thrown away in favor of simply listing out the days in a long row of values. Granted, this is to accommodate the art work, however I like my calendars to be both beautiful and functional.

As a calendar this thing sucks. As art it is great assuming you can hang it straight.

Beautiful art, but not good for actual use. I wish I had looked at this product more closely before buying. I was just excited to get beautiful trek ship art for 2013. But it hangs sideways (which makes sense to display the ships.) The double tacks make it hard to flip to later months to see what's coming up, and to change the month you have to take out both tacks which weakens the holes and makes them more liable to fall out... I suppose you could use nails but that might not keep it taught on the wall.
Also the calendar part is mostly an afterthought. Tiny little date charts stuck in the corners - they take up about about 1/9th of the space instead of 1/2. There is no room to write anything (like birthdays or doctors appointments) and if you could, it would have to be in white or silver so it would show up against the black of space.
I'm getting another calender to use, and keeping this as more of a "trek ship of the month art" wall hanging, which is really what it is.

This is an superb calendar; using the magic of CGI, a series of Star Trek artists have captured the magic of space travel at warp speeds! Unlike the calendars that came out around Star Trek 2009, which were annoying skewed towards the original Enterprise, the more recent Ship of the Line calendars offer a much broader and more interesting portrayal of the Federation's Battle Fleet (with the occasional non-Federation ship thrown in for the win). Unlike the "series" calendars, which simply portray static portraits of the various heroes of the Federation, the Ships of the Line exude a sense of action, pulling you away from your mundane life to the beauty and majesty of the stars. In short, this is a highly recommended calendar.

The only other review here claims that the manufacturing is bad. With all due respect, that is erroneous. I can understand why this was stated (yes, the holes ARE in the same place as a normal calendar designed to be hung top-down instead of widescreen), but rather then being a flaw, this is genius. I have been getting the Ships of the Line calendar since it came out in the mid-2000s, and a critical flaw of the calendar has always been having the holes on the tops, rather then the sides. Gravity pulls relentlessly at the hole itself (I had to tape it in some past years because the nail went right through it), and there is little way to address this, since holes at the top forces the nails/tacks to support ALL of the calendar's weight. This past year was the first where they moved the holes to the sides, and at first I thought "manufacturing error." HOWEVER, once I tried to hang it in "widescreen" using pushpins, I realized the genius of moving the holes.

The artwork is so-so, but that is not the problem. The calendar is laid out in landscape not profile so the calendar holes are on the sides not on the top with the fold vertically not horizontal like every other calendar in the world, except I guess in Hong Kong where this was printed. It is impossible to hang.
