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: The Trial Of Garridan Rismore



Stardate Unknown. The Paragons are no more. In the wake of their apparent deaths at the hands of Commander Garridan Rismore and his Away Team, the Lumenite justice system is spurned to life for the first time in centuries. Without the guidance of the Paragons, current events have risked throwing the entire Lumenite Concord into chaos. Even though general knowledge of the Paragons' demise cannot be avoided, Rismore and his crew must do all that they can to maintain the peace and tranquillity that has lasted for millennia.

Hi guys!

I just wanted to bring to your attention a new goodie in our 'Tour' section. I've made us a little map that will be updated as we go along from mission to mission. Right now it's pretty bare but it'll become more populated as we continue. I may work on another map very soon which is less of the whole protouniverse and more focused on that one specific section that we're in right now. Maybe this week. We'll see. Click on the link to go see the larger version!

Enjoy!

So I completely forgot to tell you guys about this. Meant to do so a few hours ago but it slipped my mind. XD. Anyways. I have news! As some of you might know already, and from the post that was just sent out today, Shannon who plays Lieutenant Stross is now the Jericho's XO! Hooray! While I was originally planning to put Karen in that spot following the loss of both Drew and Bobby *grumble grumble*, Shannon really stepped up and proved to me that he was deserving of that position so I gave it to him! His character will be doubling up as XO and Chief Engineer. It'll give him lots to do. So for any XO-related stuff, please go and see him! Also, Karen who plays Lieutenant JG Oldan was given the Second Officer position. This is mostly my fall-back in case something ever happens to Shannon. While I hope that won't be the case.. it needs to be there nonetheless. I hate going through XOs and hope that this one will finally work out for us. We have many fun things planned and we're actually getting to missions now. As always, if you have any ideas for missions please let me or Shannon know and we can talk about it! :D Anyhow, that's all for now. Keep going with our awesome posts guys!

I've been asked to pass along a little message from our TFCO. Here it is!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Kia ora all,

I have sorted out some dead links that were in the TFMS, meaning the TF9 chat will now work.

The link is

https://kiwiirc.com/client?settings=eaf5e63a6dc37f416f3f5968dd9b86e5

Please encourage your crews to visit. Its nice to let them meet other people in the Task Force, and I certainly enjoy meeting new people. You can even set up your own room on the server. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.

Cheers,
Andrew
RAdm Vadosia Adislo

Please note that while some people might be there in the chat room, they might be away. With that being said, this might be a good way to try and find more people to join the Jericho as we need to fill in a few spaces going forward. :D As always if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Posted on Tue Feb 25, 2014 @ 8:40am by Commander Garridan Rismore in Sim Announcement

I can't believe I forgot about this! I'm a few days late but I wanted to post this anyways.

It was a year ago yesterday that the Jericho became active and started recruiting. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that we'd be where we are today. I'm very proud of everyone who has made this journey possible. We've had our ups and downs, mostly in regards to our flaky first officers, but overall it's been a pretty smooth ride. Thank you.

Some will already know about how the theme of our story was first conceived. But for those who don't I'll try to keep it short! Naturally, it was over a year ago that I started putting the pieces together. I'd been re-watching DS9 at the time and watched the episode 'Playing God'. When I'd finished watching that episode I was like... 'I wonder what happened to that protouniverse after Dax put it back?'. That was pretty much the spawning point of the idea. The main thing that I want to do on the Jericho.. both in the past and in the future is to have that sense of adventure and exploration where no person has gone before. I wanted to do something that would be considered 'new' to our characters. In my opinion, there's only so much that a person can do in regards to dealing with the Klingons, the Cardassians or even the Borg. I wanted to deal with something that was untouched.

Long story short, YES we are going to be in the protouniverse for the long run. This is our story much like getting home was Voyager's story. The over-arcing theme of our story, based on what happened in the last mission is going to be Us VS. Veriathan. I wonder who's going to come out on top of that one? :P Nevertheless, it's how we get from the now to then that is the most important. I look forward to the character development that is to come on all fronts. I'm already seeing some really great things from people.

In closing, I want to say thank you but I also want to put an idea forth to you guys. As of right now there isn't a specific mission that is set in stone following our current one. I'd like to put it to any one of you guys to come up with a mission for us to do. Be imaginative! Be creative! Come up with something that has never been done before in Star Trek! We're in a realm where anything is possible. I'm also a huge fan of plots that involve specific characters. So come up with some ideas and let me know! I'm open to anything. This is our show. Let's continue to make it awesome.

I look forward to what's to come!

Happy birthday U.S.S. Jericho!

Without further ado... our winners.

Cochrane Medal Of Excellence - Lieutenant James Myers / Kaylee!

Starfleet Medal Of Valor - Lieutenant JG Alexander Varrenbek / Andreas!
