Welcome to the Jericho!

Following its launch from Deep Space Nine on Stardate 64691.4, the U.S.S. Jericho ventured forth into the Gamma Quadrant to revisit a protouniverse that had been long forgotten for seventeen years. When the Ambassador-class starship arrived to its destination, the crew discovered that the protouniverse had expanded in size by a considerable amount and that its continued expansion posed a risk to not only the quadrant but the entire Milky Way Galaxy.

Upon further investigation, the crew of the Jericho discovered a rift in the protouniverse and when it was decided to take a closer look with a handful of probes, the worst happened. Four energy tendrils sprang out of the rift and latched onto the Jericho. The ship, along with all its crew were lost on that day. The story, however, does not end there. The Jericho emerged on the other side of the rift, within the protouniverse itself.

After meeting with the residents on the other side of the rift, it became clear to the Jericho's crew that their arrival wasn't by accident. The Paragons, leaders of the Lumenite Concord, charged the Starfleet crew with a daunting task; to save their dying universe before all is lost.

These are the adventures of the Federation Starship Jericho. Join us in our epic adventure as our crew is put to their limits to stop the annihilation of an entire universe. While that is at the forefront of the crew's minds there is one other thing that occupies their thoughts. Every single day, the crew of the Jericho yearn for that one opportunity that will allow them to return home.


Here on the Jericho, we value quality over quantity. We want players who put some effort into their characters and are driven to telling good stories that will spark one's imagination. There is nothing more important here than one's character. We also aim to return to the days where Star Trek was about exploring new worlds and new civilizations as well as going where no person has gone before.

If you have the time at your disposal and want to be part of some engaging and thrilling stories, and most importantly, if you like everything that you've read about the ship so far, then why not give us a chance? Join us on the Jericho today!




Stardate 65024.6. Three months have passed since the Jericho was at Logidu Prime. Little progress has been made since then in finding Veriathan’s whereabouts, but the crew has made a breakthrough with the Space Bridge. Due to Lieutenant Commander Stross and Lieutenant Varrenbek’s tireless efforts, they’ve augmented it to include transportation between the Dax Protouniverse and the Gamma Quadrant. As Captain Rismore welcomes aboard a handful of new crewmembers, the Jericho receives a distress signal from a Lumenite starship that is under attack by the Jem’Hadar.

Good afternoon!

June is upon us! Overall I like the pace that we're moving at. With that being said I wouldn't be opposed to us moving through it all a bit quicker. We completed a total of three posts in May. We currently have four posts being worked on so I anticipate that we should get more posts done in June. I'd like to hit five if we can so let's try to get to our TAGs as promptly as possible. For our current mission, I have a general idea of where I'd like it to go but I am trying to leave the 'how we get there' up to you guys. As always if you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me and Shannon to discuss. As was the case with Scott's telepathy suggestion, we can always find a way to work it in if it makes sense.

Monthly Mission Recap
The Jericho arrived at the scene of the distress call and after getting a read on the situation, Captain Rismore ordered the ship to be positioned between the Lumenites and the Dominion battle cruiser to prevent any further damage to the Lumenite starship. The Jericho then contacted the Dominion ship in an attempt to put an end to the hostilities. Furious with Starfleet’s unwarranted intervention, the Vorta Commander ended their conversation despite Rismore’s offer to provide them with assistance to repair their vessel. With few options remaining, the Captain was about to suggest a course of action when Lieutenant Brendan Dernah, the Jericho’s Operations Officer, offered to try and contact the Dominion telepathically to try and broker some kind of cease fire.

Bravo Fleet Management System
There are still a couple of people who have yet to sign up to the new Bravo Fleet Management System. While it is not mandatory to do so, I would highly recommend it if only so that I can put you guys on the roster for the ship. You just need to go to this link: http://www.bravofleet.com/join/ and click on 'Create a Fleet Account' to get started. If anyone has any questions or problems when trying to figure it out, let me know or even visit the discord chat room to ask about it.

Discord
Join us on Discord! There are only a couple of us signed up in the room there. It's a great place to kick back and talk about Star Trek in general, or about the mission, or even come up with some ideas for joint posts. Give it a whirl! Here's how you can get it - LINK! CLICKY HERE!. You can also get it for your mobile phones by searching for 'Discord' in your app store.


That's all for now. Have a great month everyone!

» Mission Update (April 2017)

Posted on Tue May 2, 2017 @ 8:28am by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Good morning everyone!

We are into the month of May! We only completed two posts in April but I am okay with that. We do have a handful of posts being worked on at the moment so we should have a better month ahead of us. I don't really have much more to add for an intro this time around. Keep getting to your tags promptly!

Monthly Mission Recap
The Jericho set a course and headed for the Lumenite distress call. Whilst on their way, the crew discovered that the ship that was attacking the Lumenites was a Jem’Hadar battle cruiser. They tried to hail the Dominion vessel to no avail. Lieutenant Commander Stross reported energy fluctuations on the Dominion vessel, similar to what the Jericho experienced when it first entered the protouniverse. Likewise, Lieutenant Oldan reported that even though the Lumenites were being attacked, the Jem’Hadar’s phased polaron beams were erratic and not always finding their mark. After less than fifteen minutes of travel, Lieutenant Junior Grade Ren reported that they’d arrived at the location of the altercation, and Captain Rismore ordered the ship out of warp.

We made some good progress on the mission in April and I'd like to see us continue working hard in May to push the story froward.

LCARS Wiki
I'm hoping to put in some significant time this month to get some more pages of the wiki completed.

Removals and Additions
This month, I was forced to remove Bob (Ensign O'Reilly) from the sim again for inactivity. We did get a new player though. Jason joined us as Medical Officer Eric Compton. He and I are currently working on a post that will bring his character up to speed, and eventually onto the ship the same way we brought Dernah, Dralex and Yusei recently. So welcome aboard Jason and I hope that you enjoy your time with us.

» Looking for Tactical / Security Officers

Posted on Sat Apr 22, 2017 @ 3:09pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Hey guys!

We're trying to bulk out our departments a little bit and I'm looking for one or two people to volunteer to create a Tactical / Security NPC. This isn't a requirement. Only do so if you're interested. Just let me know!

Posted on Fri Apr 7, 2017 @ 5:14pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Happy Friday all!

I almost forgot to do this today! Here it is though. Phew! Overall, I'm pretty pleased with our activity in March. We completed six posts. I know that doesn't seem like much but considering that we are in the midst of a mission it is quite a bit. I'm not sure if we'll attain that in April but just as long as we keep the mission moving forward then I'm fine with it. So, all I have left to say at this point... is to keep answering your tags as quickly as you can! Good job everyone!

Monthly Mission Recap
The Jericho arrived in the Qosnone System and set up the Space Bridge to communicate with the Gamma Quadrant. Once activated, they made contact with the U.S.S Abeona. Through the Space Bridge, the Jericho was able to transport some supplies and a handful of new crewmembers. The interaction was cut short though when the Jericho received a distress call from a Lumenite starship that was under attack. As the only vessel in the area, the Space Bridge was returned to the ship, and the Jericho set an intercept course to render aid.

I have a few vague plans for what's going to happen moving forward, but nothing I can divulge at the moment. Steve (Ren Kannu) has volunteered to play the Vorta of the Jem'Hadar Battle Cruiser and I'm sure we might need a couple of Jem'Hadar as well. If we do then I will let you guys know.

LCARS Wiki
Okay so as you guys may have seen, I went back to using the built in wiki software for Nova and this time I managed to get it working for me. I will be continuing my work on that in the coming weeks in the hope of getting most of it completed sooner rather than later.
