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 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.

» September Slowness!

Posted on Thu Oct 1, 2015 @ 3:56pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Good afternoon everyone!

So September wasn't really a great month for us however I think that the majority of us had something going on at one point or another thanks to real life so it's understandable. I'm certain we'll have a better month in October.

September's player of the month, nominated by me, again goes to Shannon who plays our one and only Mr. Stross. I know that I've given him this award a few times already but I can't begin to tell you guys how much his presence here helps me. Congrats again Shannon and let's continue to do great things here.

Last but not least, for those people who have won player of the month, I've added a little star award thing to your bios under OOC Awards. When you put your cursor over it, it'll tell you for what month it's for. Just wanted you guys to be able to keep track of that.

My only challenge to everyone for October is to try and get to your tags promptly so that we can hopefully get a few more posts out. We have three being worked on currently. Are we able to maybe get five posts out this month? Let's do it!

» I Have Returned!

Posted on Mon Sep 14, 2015 @ 8:14pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in Out of Character

Hey everyone! I'm back from my two week LOA. Karen (Tehja) should be back on Wednesday. She works crazy hours so won't be able to tackle posts until then. I'd originally written that I'd start posts tomorrow, but while waiting for supper I managed to put them up... so we're able to start plotting and get started now! :D

» 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
