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!

Hello everyone!

I hope that everyone has had some nice Christmas holidays. Unfortunately all things must come to an end though. With the holidays coming to a close, that means that we need to get writing again! If everything goes well I'd like to try and finish this mission in the next 2-4 months. I know that we can do it, but this means that everyone is going to have to work hard on getting to those TAGs. We should be answering them every 2-3 days (especially now that the holidays are over).

2016 marks Star Trek's 50th anniversary. Let's make this a really good year for the Jericho!

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone! Happy holidays!

So, things have really slowed up in the last few weeks. I think that it's pretty normal at this time of year as people are busy with real life. That's completely okay. I myself have been busy with a number of things. I have a university astronomy assignment due tomorrow (that I'm not very confident about), and I'll also be doing some shopping and cooking this week. Oh, and it's Karen's (Tehja) birthday on Wednesday too. Lots to do. So with all of that in mind, for the next two weeks, don't worry too much about posting. Do it if you can. If you have time. That would be great. Don't feel obliged to do it though if you have other stuff going on although I do expect people to resume posting after Christmas has passed.

I hope that everyone has some super holidays with lots of Trekkie gifts. If you did get some Trek-themed gifts let us know in the OOC post. :D Be safe everyone!

» Task Force 9 Player of the Month!

Posted on Thu Nov 19, 2015 @ 4:45pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in Sim Announcement

Not only did we get a new crewmember to the Jericho today, but I also have more good news to share with you all. Shannon, who we all know plays Lieutenant David Stross Jr., was awarded the Task Force 9 Player of the month award! This goes in tandem with the player of the month award that I give every month. Basically, in our monthly reports to our superiors, we have to nominate someone for player of the month. Of all the ships in the task force, someone is usually chosen. In October, Shannon was finally recognized! So congrats and keep up the good work!

» A Few Things!

Posted on Tue Nov 3, 2015 @ 12:10pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Hello everyone! Just a few small bits and pieces to share with you today.

Firstly, I've awarded our player of the month award for October to Lieutenant Stross (Shannon) again! He's heavily involved in a couple of posts right now and has been working hard as always to keep the ship going strong. Depending on how things go this month it's possible I may suspend the whole player of the month thing. While the award to Shannon is well deserved, this is like the third month in a row that he's won it I think. I believe that everyone else isn't really getting a fair opportunity to win it based on what is going on. We'll have to wait and see. I would like to see us put in a good month for posts in November though. So keep getting to those tags!

On a completely separate note, if you haven't heard the news yet, it appears as if Star Trek will be returning to TV in January 2017! There are no details as of yet as to what it's going to be about but we can only hope that it'll take place in the Prime Timeline. The new series shouldn't affect us in any way.

» A New Skin!

Posted on Fri Oct 23, 2015 @ 11:21pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in Website Update

Hello everyone!

If you haven't seen it yet, the site has a new look! After working on a new look for Shannon's ship site (the Hope), and considering our recent troubles with recruitment, I decided to try and freshen up this place a little bit by giving it an actual Trek-look. I have to say that I really like the colour scheme that I've chosen. The colours that I've chosen come from the LCARS used during the Original Series movies. The Ambassador-class was a ship that came about a little bit after that time but it's always been a set that I thought looked good for us.

I've set this new skin (named LCARS) as the new default skin. The old one is still there however the buttons may not look right. It's up to you what you want to have it set to. If you'd like to change it to our new one, you'll need to go to the site options in your control panel and set it under 'My Skins' to the correct on.

I think I've handled all of the edits to the colours and stuff, however if anyone does notice something out of the ordinary please let me know and I'll take a look at it.

I hope you like the new look!
