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.

First of all I have to say if you just want it for the artwork, the pictures are fantastic. But what were they thinking when they designed the layout? You can't hang this calendar on the wall like you would expect. All the pictures are horizontal across both sides (what would normally be the top and bottom) of the calendar. The calendar has to hang on its side. To make matters worse, don't expect Sunday always be the first column of the actual calendar part. The 1st of the month is always the first column so if Tuesday is the 1st day of the month, the calendar days are listed T W Th F S S M. How weird is this. The calendar part ususally takes up about an eighth of a page in a corner somewhere. Again, great pictures but a weird layout.

I've been getting the "Ships of the Line" calendar for a few years now, so by now I know to expect a landscape format so I won't take off a star for that. That said, I do wish they'd go back to a standard wall hanger format with the picture on half and a full size monthly calendar on the other half for each month.

This year has a couple months with so-so artwork though and that I will take a star off for. I don't expect, nor want, every month to have photo realistic looking computer generated 3D renderings but I do want stuff that looks professional. At least one month's drawing looks like it was made by a somewhat talented kid instead of a professional artist.

I still recommend this for fans of Star Trek ships.

This was not at all what I was expecting. This calendar opens side to side not top to bottom. The dates are hard to read and are very small. It takes two fasteners to attach it to the wall. The weeks are all random. Some months the weeks are FridayThru Thursday and others are Wednesday thru Tuesday, etc. I do like the pictures however.

If you're a Trekkie, this is the calendar for you. Just be advised that the calendar hangs sideways (as opposed to hanging vertical). You'll need two nails to hold the calendar open on a wall. The graphics are great. My son took my first one, so I'll need to order another one!
