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.

» Closure Of The Jericho

Posted on Thu Nov 2, 2017 @ 5:05pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in Sim Announcement

Hello everyone!

We're into November now. I've been doing alot of thinking in the last few months about what I want to do with the sim. The birth of my daughter at the end of September really put my priorities into perspective. After speaking to Karen and Shannon at length about the Jericho recently, I've come to the decision that I will be closing the sim effective immediately.

There are three main reasons why I've decided to do this. The main factor is time. Since Karen gave birth at the end of September, she hasn't even touched her computer and we have no idea when she's going to be able to. Hopefully soon, but this leads me to my main point of time. Come February I'll be taking care of the baby full time when Karen goes back to work. I am anticipating that I pretty much will not want to be writing at all during that period of time. The second factor is my university course. From January to April next year I have three assignments due. With taking care of the baby, alot of my time is going to need to be devoted to homework and assignments and not simming. And again, I anticipate that by the end of me doing all of that work, I don't think I'll want to be sat a my computer writing. Lastly, and this is directed at the sim itself, I've really lost interest in our storyline (and have for many months), and the whole TNG/DS9/VGR era as a whole. To be fair, I'm just not sure if I want to do this anymore. Those are my reasons. Take from them what you will.

I would like to thank everyone, both past and present, for being a part of this sim. It has been fun. I am certain that we will cross paths at some point in the future somewhere else.

This website will remain available for you to access until February so I would suggest for you to get whatever you need from here before that time. As I will not be renewing the domain name, the website will be gone after that month.

I wish you all the very best. Good luck. And I'll see you out there!

Posted on Wed Sep 6, 2017 @ 5:16pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Guys! September is going to be crazy.

Hi everyone! So, August was a good month for us. We completed five posts. Good job! We are making good progress on the mission and I anticipate we'll be continuing to move forward this month. On to the crazy bit... at some point over the next three weeks, Karen (Tehja) and I will be welcoming our first child into the world. As such, I don't really know how things are going to go once her labour kicks in. All I ask out of everyone for this month is for you to be patient with us. Chances are I will be able to inform Steve (as I have him as a friend on facebook) and so he'll be able to let you guys know once stuff is happening. Aside from all of that, please continue to get to your tags.

Monthly Mission Recap
With Mauna a ‘guest’ aboard the Jericho, Captain Rismore and members of his senior staff were able to speak with her about the situation that she and her Jem’Hadar now found themselves in. Whilst not much headway was made in finding out the truth behind their arrival into the protouniverse, the Captain did managed to convince Mauna that it would be in her best interests not to go up against the Lumenites. Following their talk, she was returned to her ship. On the Mavis, repair and medical teams are continuing their efforts to help the Lumenites recover from the Dominion attack.

Crew Changes
There was one change to our roster in August. As you know, Scott who played Lieutenant Brendan Dernah, stepped away from the Jericho. We wish him all the best in his future writing endeavors.

That's about it. Keep up the good work everyone. Have a good month.

Posted on Thu Aug 3, 2017 @ 5:49pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Good day everyone! Here's your regularly scheduled sim monthly update.

July wasn't a very good month for us. We only managed to get one post out and were hit by delays in our posts from various sources. Things should be different in August. We have a couple of posts that are nearly ready to be sent out and Karen is one day away from being on maternity leave so she'll have a little bit more time to reply to posts. I'm hoping that we can turn things around and start making progress in this mission. The posts coming up will certainly help us in doing just that. As always, please get to your TAGs as quickly as possible.

Monthly Mission Recap
An away team comprised of Lieutenant Commander Stross, Lieutenant Dernah, Lieutenant Junior Grade Ren, and Doctor Myers beamed over to the P.V.L. Mavis to render aid to the Lumenites. They spoke to Captain Padma who gave them a run-down of all the damages they sustained thanks to the Dominion battle cruiser. A plan was then formulated. The medical teams would stay on the bridge and tend to those who were wounded, while Stross would take a team down to deck six to begin repairs on the environmental system located on that deck.

Crew Changes

Just one minor change on this front. Jason, who played Ensign Eric Compton has opted to leave the Jericho due to lack of time. I would like to wish him all the best.

August is the last month of summer. Enjoy it while it lasts but remember to get to your posts too. Have a good one fellow Trekkies. Star Trek: Discovery is coming soon too. Yays!

» Mission Update (June 2017)

Posted on Mon Jul 10, 2017 @ 6:43pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Hello everyone!

My apologies that this is ten days late. Life has been really busy for both me and Karen lately. Our days are filled with appointments and work to get our house and one of our rooms ready for the baby. I am still more or less able to answer posts and whatnot at the usual rate that I do. Karen is, understandably, a little slower right now. She only has four weeks of work left before she hops onto maternity leave though so things should normalize for her when that happens. As for when the baby arrives... well I have no idea what to expect but we'll see what happens.

In the month of June we completed a total of three posts. That's okay-ish. I would have liked to see us finish up a few of the ones that are currently being worked on. No matter, they'll come out in July. We should have about four or five I think for the month so it will all work out. Please remember to get to your tags as promptly as possible (at the very least every two to three days) otherwise the posts will be slowed right up and it will be difficult for everyone. If you need to be away please let me or Shannon (Stross) know. I know this is just a game but it's good to be aware of what's going on in case we need to adapt the mission accordingly.

Monthly Mission Recap
The Jericho’s new Chief Operations Officer, Lieutenant Brendan Dernah, telepathically contacted the Jem’Hadar First of the Dominion battle cruiser in an attempt to get them to cease their attack on the Lumenites. Being duty prone to the Vorta and the Dominion, the First refused to engage with the Betazoid. With little choice left, Captain Rismore ordered the Vorta be beamed directly to the bridge so that she would have no alternative but to talk to them. Rismore was able to reason with Mauna and hostilities between the two ended for now. She was escorted to the observations lounge so that she and the Captain could further discuss matters relating to both parties.

That's about it. I don't really have much more to say. Have a good July, folks!
