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.

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!

Good afternoon!

June is upon us! Overall I like the pace that we're moving at. With that being said I wouldn't be opposed to us moving through it all a bit quicker. We completed a total of three posts in May. We currently have four posts being worked on so I anticipate that we should get more posts done in June. I'd like to hit five if we can so let's try to get to our TAGs as promptly as possible. For our current mission, I have a general idea of where I'd like it to go but I am trying to leave the 'how we get there' up to you guys. As always if you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me and Shannon to discuss. As was the case with Scott's telepathy suggestion, we can always find a way to work it in if it makes sense.

Monthly Mission Recap
The Jericho arrived at the scene of the distress call and after getting a read on the situation, Captain Rismore ordered the ship to be positioned between the Lumenites and the Dominion battle cruiser to prevent any further damage to the Lumenite starship. The Jericho then contacted the Dominion ship in an attempt to put an end to the hostilities. Furious with Starfleet’s unwarranted intervention, the Vorta Commander ended their conversation despite Rismore’s offer to provide them with assistance to repair their vessel. With few options remaining, the Captain was about to suggest a course of action when Lieutenant Brendan Dernah, the Jericho’s Operations Officer, offered to try and contact the Dominion telepathically to try and broker some kind of cease fire.

Bravo Fleet Management System
There are still a couple of people who have yet to sign up to the new Bravo Fleet Management System. While it is not mandatory to do so, I would highly recommend it if only so that I can put you guys on the roster for the ship. You just need to go to this link: http://www.bravofleet.com/join/ and click on 'Create a Fleet Account' to get started. If anyone has any questions or problems when trying to figure it out, let me know or even visit the discord chat room to ask about it.

Discord
Join us on Discord! There are only a couple of us signed up in the room there. It's a great place to kick back and talk about Star Trek in general, or about the mission, or even come up with some ideas for joint posts. Give it a whirl! Here's how you can get it - LINK! CLICKY HERE!. You can also get it for your mobile phones by searching for 'Discord' in your app store.


That's all for now. Have a great month everyone!

» Mission Update (April 2017)

Posted on Tue May 2, 2017 @ 8:28am by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Good morning everyone!

We are into the month of May! We only completed two posts in April but I am okay with that. We do have a handful of posts being worked on at the moment so we should have a better month ahead of us. I don't really have much more to add for an intro this time around. Keep getting to your tags promptly!

Monthly Mission Recap
The Jericho set a course and headed for the Lumenite distress call. Whilst on their way, the crew discovered that the ship that was attacking the Lumenites was a Jem’Hadar battle cruiser. They tried to hail the Dominion vessel to no avail. Lieutenant Commander Stross reported energy fluctuations on the Dominion vessel, similar to what the Jericho experienced when it first entered the protouniverse. Likewise, Lieutenant Oldan reported that even though the Lumenites were being attacked, the Jem’Hadar’s phased polaron beams were erratic and not always finding their mark. After less than fifteen minutes of travel, Lieutenant Junior Grade Ren reported that they’d arrived at the location of the altercation, and Captain Rismore ordered the ship out of warp.

We made some good progress on the mission in April and I'd like to see us continue working hard in May to push the story froward.

LCARS Wiki
I'm hoping to put in some significant time this month to get some more pages of the wiki completed.

Removals and Additions
This month, I was forced to remove Bob (Ensign O'Reilly) from the sim again for inactivity. We did get a new player though. Jason joined us as Medical Officer Eric Compton. He and I are currently working on a post that will bring his character up to speed, and eventually onto the ship the same way we brought Dernah, Dralex and Yusei recently. So welcome aboard Jason and I hope that you enjoy your time with us.

There are still a number of people who have yet to sign up to the new Bravo Fleet Management System.

Join Discord and have a chat with us. There are a few of us in there from time to time. The more the merrier, as they say.

Have a great month!
