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.

» Mission Update (February 2017)

Posted on Fri Mar 3, 2017 @ 6:25pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Good day everyone!

We are now in the month of March! February went by quickly and I'm kind of glad it's behind us. It was a little hectic for me in real life. March should be better and I expect that it should be a good month for us. We got out a total of five posts in February. I'm really happy with that considering how many people we have. I would like to see us try to push for a little bit more.. maybe seven or eight posts, but if we can at least get five again in March that will be awesome. I know that there are quite a few posts being worked on right now so keep at 'em. Reply to your tags as promptly as you can!

Monthly Mission Recap
The Jericho arrived at the Lumenite homeworld, Celestia, to pick up Doctor James Myers and his family. They’d been residing there for several months as the Doctor tried to work with the Lumenites to find a solution to Commander Scott’s condition. As they were going to be transporting some new crewmembers aboard in several days, it was decided that Scott would be returned to the Gamma Quadrant so that she could get better care from Federation specialists. Once the Doctor was back aboard the ship, the Jericho headed for the Qosnone System where they’d be conducting their transporter operations with the U.S.S. Abeona.

We should be able to push the mission forward in the next week or two. One of the big plot posts is more or less ready to be posted. The other one is being worked on by our new players and once they are aboard the Jericho things will start to happen. THINGS!

LCARS Wiki
I started working on the LCARS wiki this month but quickly found out that the built-in thresher system that Nova uses is inadequate for the task. So, I'm going to have to make up a wiki from scratch using the standard wiki software. I'm hoping I'll be able to start working on that either this weekend or next week. There are a few things I want to get done before I get started on it.

Bravo Fleet Management System
There are still a number 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
Funny that I mentioned Discord! So this is a new thing that's really taken off in the gaming community. Essentially what we have is a chat room where you can talk with your fellow players! I've made a specific server for us and you can find it at #ussjericho. You can access our new chat room either via the Discord link in the top menu, or you can even get to it via the Discord app that you can get for your desktop or phone located here. I think another way is if you've already created your Discord account, you can then just let me know what it is and I can send you an invite. Anyhow, I'd like to see some people in there. Right now, nobody has visited but it would be nice to chat with some of you from time to time.

Anyhow, that's about everything for this month. I hope that you all have a good one and keep on writing!

» Mission Update (January 2017)

Posted on Thu Feb 2, 2017 @ 8:47am by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Good morning!

As promised, here's the mission update report for the month of January 2017. It has been quite an eventful month for us. We completed our last mission and then started our new one. I'm hoping that we'll be able to progress through this mission quickly and I'm also really hoping that you all enjoy it. 'The Fruit of Tantalus' is going to take us away from the Veriathan storyline again, but don't fret, we'll be seeing him again very soon.

Post wise, we did well for January. We completed a total of six posts. I'd like to see us hit that mark again in February, if not more. Ten posts would be nice. I know that we can do it. There are already several posts being worked on so it's not out of the realm of possibility. So far the posting is turning out really good on all fronts so keep it up and I look forward to reading more from you guys in the month ahead.

Monthly Mission Recap
The away team consisting of Lieutenant Stross, Lieutenants JG Oldan and Ren, and a few security officers returned to the Jericho where they informed Commander Rismore of Jodan’s fate. In the days that followed, the science and engineering departments completed the ‘Space Bridge’. It was brought online in the remote Qosnone System, and the Jericho was able to make contact with the U.S.S. Black Hawk in the Gamma Quadrant. This was the first time in months that the Jericho had made contact with anyone from Starfleet.

In the three months that followed, several key personnel on the Jericho were promoted, including Garridan Rismore from Commander to Captain. The capabilities of the Space Bridge were also improved to include transporter technology. Plans are currently underway to beam over some new crewmembers from the Gamma Quadrant to the Jericho.


So! This month we should be beaming aboard our new people.. and from there we'll be getting right into the thick of things. So things will start to happen rather quickly. Be on the lookout!

Site Things
I've started putting together the information for the site's LCARS/wiki. I've already gone over Mission #1 and put everything that I need into a google docs document. So I need to get on to Mission #2. For this, I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it. February is going to be incredibly busy for me as I have two university assignments to complete. Again, if anyone would like to help me out with this task, it would be greatly appreciated.

Bravo Fleet Management System
This is just a reminder that the new Bravo Fleet Management System is now up and I need everyone to create their characters on it so that I can put you on the roster. Signing up is easy. Just go to bravofleet.com and click on Membership, then Join the Fleet to create your account. From there, you can find 'Create Character' in the dashboard on the top left side.

Awards
I'd just like to take this time to again congratulate Shannon for winning the Bravo Fleet Player of the Quarter (for October - December 2016), and Player of the Year (2016). Keep up the good work! I really appreciate having you here on the Jericho.

Well, I think that's about it for this month. Let's put in a good effort in February! Get to those TAGs and let's push the mission forward.

» Two Major Awards!

Posted on Fri Jan 27, 2017 @ 6:26pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Thanks to Michael who brought it up in our OOC discussion, it looks like one of our own has won two major awards in Bravo Fleet for 2016.

I would like to congratulate Shannon (who as we all know plays Lieutenant Commander David Stross Jr.), for winning both the Bravo Fleet Player of the Quarter for October to December, as well as the Bravo Fleet Player of the Year!

Wow! How incredible is that!?! Very well deserved and the Jericho wouldn't be where it is today without your help. Thanks for everything Shannon and keep up the good work. I've attached two new shiny OOC awards to your character bio. How are you going to top that one in 2017 I wonder?

» The Bravo Fleet Website Has Been Upgraded [Edited]

Posted on Mon Jan 23, 2017 @ 5:48pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Hello everyone! I've been asked to pass this along to you guys.

* * * * *


To all Commanding Officers/Game Managers in Bravo Fleet,

Yesterday, the Bravo Fleet Admiralty unveiled the new Bravo Fleet Management System (BFMS) which has been many years in the making. This is our response to increased demand for centralized services. For the first time ever, we have a site that:

1. Replaces the existing TFMS per Task Force, the Bravo Fleet homepage, the Fleet News Service (FNS), the Hall of Honour (HOH) and the fleet graphics site.
2. Adds new features for every player, not just Commanding Officers and Admiralty, such as a player dossier with all of your awards and characters, and service requests for the BFMS.
3. Lays the groundwork for a single point of access to all of Bravo Fleet's core internet services.

I could go on and on, but I'll let JonM's forum announcement tell the rest of the story.

Signing up is easy. Just go to bravofleet.com and Click on Membership, then Join the Fleet to create your account.

Please also let your crews know about this new system. If it was built for anyone in mind, it was for your players, not those in Admiralty or COs.

-Andrew

» Changes In Bravo Fleet

Posted on Wed Jan 11, 2017 @ 12:25pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Hey everyone!

I've been asked to send this your way from our Task Force CO.

* * * * *


To all members of Task Force 9,

Bravo Fleet is undergoing massive changes, while many have experienced the Fleet has been in decline the Bravo Fleet Admiralty is seeking to address these problems head on by taking the measures needed to resolve the problems. To do this however it requests your help. As members of Task Force 9 and Bravo Fleet at large you are what makes the Fleet. Without players there would be no CO’s and without CO’s there would be no Admiralty. To involve you the Bravo Fleet Command Council, following a vote by the Bravo Fleet Admiralty, has decided to form Community Work Groups. Each of these groups is chaired by a member of the Admiralty but is open for anyone to participate in with each voice being offered a platform. Four Work Groups have been created to address rules(constitutional and by-law reform), canon(smoothing out the different canons), player experience(improve the enjoyment of players) and community outreach(what steps need to be taken to make the Fleet more accessible to outsiders and attract new members). I would like to ask you to sign up for one or more of these groups so that your voices will be reflected in the future of Bravo Fleet.

For a more in depth overview of the groups you can read the topic here: http://forum.bravofleet.com/forum/announcements/bfa-announcements/22456-community-work-groups

To sign up you can fill in the form here: http://www.bravofleet.com/?page_id=375

Thank you very much for reading and I look forward to interact with you all in the work groups.

Sincerely,

Alexander,
a.k.a. Vice Admiral Lauren A. Archer,
Task Force 9 Commanding Officer
