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.

» 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

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


» Mission Update (December 2016)

Posted on Tue Jan 3, 2017 @ 4:24pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Hello everyone!

How is it January 2017 already!?!? Another year has flown by. I'm hoping that the new year will bring about some good things for the Jericho. We are about a week or so away from starting a new mission, one which will scale things back a little bit as we deal with a threat that is all too familiar to us from our own universe. I think it should be fun. With the comms to our own universe working now too (as we've written in the one post that hasn't gone out yet), we'll be pushing things further and having the transporters work between universes which will facilitate our ability to bring aboard new players. I'm really hoping we can get some this year. We need some fresh redshirts!

With the Christmas holidays over, I expect people to get back into the swing of things. When the new mission comes around, reach out to your fellow players for joint posts so that we can some character interaction going. It's something that we've been lacking for a long time so I'd like to see all of us, including me, put some effort in that direction.

Monthly Mission Recap
Upon discovering residual verteron particles in a cave on Logidu Prime, Lieutenant Stross assembled an away team comprised of himself, Lieutenant JGs Kannu and Oldan and a pair of security officers. Jodan also joined them at the request of Commander Rismore. After beaming down to the planet, the away team found that the cave actually led to a temple, similar to what had already been found on the previous day, as well as on Choss. Jodan explained that the place that they were in was the same location where he’d originally seen Veriathan. It was then that Veriathan appeared before them, although just as an image. He expressed disappointment that Jodan would help the people from the other universe (Starfleet crew). Before disappearing, Veriathan warned the Jericho away team that if they crossed paths again that he would no longer show them any mercy. Jodan, meanwhile, grabbed a phaser from one of the security officers and killed himself, unable to live with himself for disappointing his god.

I still have no time table as to when I want to get working on the LCARS, however if anyone wants to volunteer to help me out I'd more than appreciate it. What I'd be asking isn't hard, but it would take up a bit of time... however it's something that when it's done, it'll be done. Send me a PM if you might be interested!


That's all for this month. Let's try to wrap up this mission by this weekend / next week so that we can get started on something new. I'd like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!

» Mission Update (October & November 2016)

Posted on Thu Dec 1, 2016 @ 5:36pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Hello everyone!

So it looks like that I forgot to do the mission update post for October, so it'll be included with this one. In October we completed two posts, while in November we did not complete any. I'm not really concerned about that right now because there are four posts currently being worked on and I expect them to be completed over the next couple of weeks. All I will say is to keep getting to your TAGS as quickly as possible. I expect that we should be able to bring this mission to a conclusion in December.

The Mission: Recap
Once the hostage situation with Jodan in Main Engineering was dealt with, the senior officers returned to the bridge and resumed their original plan to scan for verteron particles on Logidu Prime, starting with the city where they found the Lumenite. When initial scans showed negative signs of the particle, the search radius was expanded and trace amounts of verterons were found underground several kilometers away from the city. Commander Rismore ordered his First Officer to assemble an away team, and to take Jodan, to look for any sign of Veriathan, the Destroyer of All-Things.

As I mentioned above, I think that we should be able to bring this mission to a close this month. We are in the process of working on the final post so if everything seems to be going according to plan. My aim is to start the next mission in January. I'll also be hoping to recruit some new players as we'll finally have a means of bringing them aboard the ship from the Gamma Quadrant.

I'd like to encourage people to start posting with each other more. The friendships that our characters can forge can go a long way to making missions interesting. I know that there's going to be a period of time of a couple of days where nothing is really going on (MD3 and MD4). The away team will be back to the ship by that time minus one person (that's a secret!). I expect that the Jericho will be traveling to a remote area of space during that time to test out the Space Bridge. So do posts with each other but we only have this month to do that before the mission is closed off.

Site Things
As of right now, I am having to put the LCARS database on hold. It's still something that I want to get done but I'm really feeling overwhelmed by the workload from both real life school and my three ships. The truth is that I'm having to come up with a deck listing for one of my other sims and it has 95 decks.. so it's taking me a really long time to get through it. Once that's done however, the LCARS database is the next thing I'll be working on. If anyone did want to lend a hand though, just let me know via PM and we can discuss it further.


There's not much else for me to report even though I missed the update from October. I hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years!

J.P. / Commander Garridan Rismore


» Mission Update (September 2016)

Posted on Sat Oct 1, 2016 @ 7:41pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Hello everyone!

So, after winning sim of the month for August, this past month was a little disappointing activity-wise. The post that we worked on took a really long time to complete. I'm not blaming anyone. With the amount of active players that we have right now, replying to posts takes time and things go a little slower. I would like to encourage people to try and get to their tags as quickly as they can so that we can keep pushing this mission forward and to a completion. We're almost there. I will go into a bit more detail in a bit about what is still coming. I'd like to see us try to get two or three posts out this month. Let's try to make it so!

The Mission
Following the news that Jodan had taken some people hostage and had sequestered himself in Main Engineering, Commander Rismore and Counselor Keistler made their way down to deck twenty-two to confront him. When they arrived, they found that Lieutenant Oldan was already there coordinating with her security teams. Garridan spoke with Jodan from outside of Engineering and after revealing to him that Veriathan murdered the Paragons, he was able to get the Lumenite to surrender himself to them. This information, as we know, has never been revealed to anyone outside of the Jericho crew, or the current Paragons, and thus came as a shock to Jodan when he heard of it. Jodan was confined to his quarters and put under guard.


As mentioned, there are a few things we have left to do before we bring this mission to a close. With Jodan taken care of, we need to scan Logidu Prime for verteron particles to see if there's any trace of Veriathan. I can tell you that we will find some residual particles and an away team will be sent down to take a look. Whether or not they find anything, remains to be seen. After the away team is done, the science and engineering departments are going to finish working on the 'ring' (we need a better name for it) and we're going to make an attempt at contacting Starfleet! That's more or less where we're headed for the rest of this mission. There are a few other minor things but they're not really worth mentioning until they happen.

Site Things
This was mentioned to you guys in the OOC but I thought I'd put it on here anyways so that everyone is kept in the loop. Some of you might have noticed that there is now an LCARS link at the top (along with all the other links). This is going to lead to a Jericho wiki! The reason I am going to be putting a wiki together is mainly because in our short time that the Jericho has been in the Dax Protouniverse, we've had a ton of lore thrown at us about the Lumenites. It's getting a bit difficult to remember it all! The amount of lore that is currently not really accessible to new players might make them also feel a bit overwhelmed. So the plan is to try and put as much information about the Lumenites and the Dax Protouniverse in this wiki to not only help us, but to also help any players who might be interested in joining us in our adventures. I have no timetable for when it'll be done. If anyone did want to help I'd be more than grateful for it. I think I might have to go through each post (again) to pick out any details that we may have created for the lore.. and although it's a mighty task, I think that when it's done it'll be a very good thing for us to have.


That's it for this month. Please get to your tags as quickly as possible. Keep writing!

J.P. / Commander Garridan Rismore
