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!

Current Mission: Death By Devotion

Stardate Unknown. The discovery of wall carvings in a cave on Choss has led the Jericho to the Logidu System - a star system whose position happens to be along Veriathan's last known trajectory.

» Brief LOA!

Posted on Fri Aug 28, 2015 @ 9:57am by Commander Garridan Rismore in Out of Character

Hey everyone!

Karen (Tehja) and I will be going on a brief LOA starting on August 29th that will last until September 13th. We're going to visit my family in Canada whom I haven't seen for over two years now.

During this time, due to our current number in active players, we'll be effectively 'pausing' the mission until we get back. This doesn't mean that the remaining people can't write. We'll be arriving at Logidu Prime on MD1 at 1400 hours so you have some time to do posts if you want to!

We both should still have access to the internet while we're away so if you need to get a hold of either of us then you should be able to. We'll get back to you as quickly as we can.

Last but not least, August's player of the month award goes to Shannon who we all know plays Lt. David Stross Jr. Was a bit difficult to choose someone as we didn't really do much but Shannon has been very helpful behind the scenes with planning the mission and whatnot. Once I get back from Canada I'll work on something to show who has won the player of the month award so that we can all keep track of it.

See you guys in a couple of weeks!

» Mission #5 - 'Death By Devotion'

Posted on Tue Aug 4, 2015 @ 4:15pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

'Death By Devotion' marks the Jericho's fifth mission. This one should make use of our current active members, with room for others to jump in should we get new players, or old players returning.

As you guys know by now, I like to use real life events to fuel my missions. This one is no exception. 'Death By Devotion' will deal with religion and terrorism. Terrorism is always a shady topic to talk about, however it's nothing new to Star Trek. I believe DS9 delved into terrorism on more than one occasion with the Maquis and also the Circle.

Here's a basic run-down of what I have planned for the mission:
- We will be going to Logidu Prime.
- An away team comprised of Rismore, Stross, Oldan, and Keistler will go to the planet.
- The first part of the mission will be a fact finding mission, where we need to find any evidence of these people who revere Veriathan on this planet.
- Once we do, we'll try to go and see them to see if we can find Veriathan, or at the very least, where he is.
- The Veriathan fanatics start getting on to us so we leave, and return to the ship, but not before someone asks for protection from us.
- This is where things get a bit dark. This person will start killing people on the ship in the name of Veriathan because he knows who we are.
- We have to stop him!

That's more or less what I have planned. I think it should make good use of everyone's talents. At least for those who are still active. I'll be starting a briefing post shortly, and will also be working on an opening post from the fanatics' point of view over the coming days. If anyone has any questions, please let me know. Here's hoping that this information will help you guys figure out what we need to do.

Oh, on a side note... if anyone wants to volunteer with science, operations or engineering npcs, please let me know. I want to get cracking on the communications thing in this mission so that I can finally have my Captain rank. :P

» 'Natural Instinct' Now Closed

Posted on Tue Aug 4, 2015 @ 3:46pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in Sim Announcement

Hello everyone!

Just a quick notice that with the latest post having just gone out, 'Natural Instinct' is now completed. Good job!

My agenda for today is to start a briefing post for the senior staff and to give you guys a rundown of what to expect in our new mission named 'Death By Devotion'.

» End of Month & Mission!

Posted on Sat Aug 1, 2015 @ 1:03pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today marks the end of our fourth mission - Natural Instinct. There is one last post that needs to be finished and sent out. It's one that Shannon (Stross) and I are working on. I think it's nearly done. Just need a few replies to finish it off. So hopefully in the next couple of days.

A bit of bad news on a few fronts. The details of our next mission haven't been finalized yet. I think we're nearly there, so again expect something in the next couple of days. I'm going to try to be more clear on my expectations for the mission once we know what we're doing.

I've had to remove Lt. JG Finn Simmons and Lt. JG Andru Tinman from the Jericho's roster. Unfortunately both hadn't logged into the site for a while, nor did they answer the role call. Sad to see them go, but I wish them the best.

As it stands right now, we only have four active players, with three others currently on LOA (although Wilkins did tell me he'd be off of LOA soon). I know that it's going to be difficult to get posts out with only four of us writing, but I'm going to try to push things along. I've asked Karen to chip in by playing some NPCs in other departments. If anyone else would like to do so as well, then let me know. The NPCs that are currently there are mine, but it doesn't hurt to have more! There are alot of people on our ship after all.

On to some better news. Everyone who contributed in a post last mission will have a new shiny commendation in their bios. Yay. I hope you like it. For the past two months, as part of our monthly report in Bravo Fleet, we've had to select a player of the month. Now, as of right now I still have no idea what being selected as player of the month is supposed to do in the Fleet which is why I never mentioned anything about it last month. With that being said, I'll let you guys know who I chose for the past two months. So without further ado:

June PotM: Lt. David Stross (played by Shannon)
July PotM: Lt. Arnulf Keistler (played by Kaylee)

Congrats to you both. Keep up the good work. And that goes for everyone.

Just an advance notice that Karen and I will be away for two weeks starting on August 29th. During that time, the mission will be postponed but if anyone does have any ongoing posts they can continue writing them.

That's all from me. If anyone has any questions let me know. Have a good weekend!

» End Of Mission Role Call

Posted on Mon Jul 27, 2015 @ 3:19pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Hey everyone!

For some reason I'm not getting an e-mail today when I'm re-saving the role call. This has been happening as well on another one of my ships. I really have no idea why. Anyhow, please be advised that the role call ends on Friday. Anyone who has not answered it will be removed on August 1st!

Thank you and have a great week!
