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.

» Mission Update (January 2017)

Posted on Thu Feb 2, 2017 @ 8:47am by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Good morning!

As promised, here's the mission update report for the month of January 2017. It has been quite an eventful month for us. We completed our last mission and then started our new one. I'm hoping that we'll be able to progress through this mission quickly and I'm also really hoping that you all enjoy it. 'The Fruit of Tantalus' is going to take us away from the Veriathan storyline again, but don't fret, we'll be seeing him again very soon.

Post wise, we did well for January. We completed a total of six posts. I'd like to see us hit that mark again in February, if not more. Ten posts would be nice. I know that we can do it. There are already several posts being worked on so it's not out of the realm of possibility. So far the posting is turning out really good on all fronts so keep it up and I look forward to reading more from you guys in the month ahead.

Monthly Mission Recap
The away team consisting of Lieutenant Stross, Lieutenants JG Oldan and Ren, and a few security officers returned to the Jericho where they informed Commander Rismore of Jodan’s fate. In the days that followed, the science and engineering departments completed the ‘Space Bridge’. It was brought online in the remote Qosnone System, and the Jericho was able to make contact with the U.S.S. Black Hawk in the Gamma Quadrant. This was the first time in months that the Jericho had made contact with anyone from Starfleet.

In the three months that followed, several key personnel on the Jericho were promoted, including Garridan Rismore from Commander to Captain. The capabilities of the Space Bridge were also improved to include transporter technology. Plans are currently underway to beam over some new crewmembers from the Gamma Quadrant to the Jericho.


So! This month we should be beaming aboard our new people.. and from there we'll be getting right into the thick of things. So things will start to happen rather quickly. Be on the lookout!

Site Things
I've started putting together the information for the site's LCARS/wiki. I've already gone over Mission #1 and put everything that I need into a google docs document. So I need to get on to Mission #2. For this, I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it. February is going to be incredibly busy for me as I have two university assignments to complete. Again, if anyone would like to help me out with this task, it would be greatly appreciated.

Bravo Fleet Management System
This is just a reminder that the new Bravo Fleet Management System is now up and I need everyone to create their characters on it so that I can put you on the roster. Signing up is easy. Just go to bravofleet.com and click on Membership, then Join the Fleet to create your account. From there, you can find 'Create Character' in the dashboard on the top left side.

Awards
I'd just like to take this time to again congratulate Shannon for winning the Bravo Fleet Player of the Quarter (for October - December 2016), and Player of the Year (2016). Keep up the good work! I really appreciate having you here on the Jericho.

Well, I think that's about it for this month. Let's put in a good effort in February! Get to those TAGs and let's push the mission forward.

» Two Major Awards!

Posted on Fri Jan 27, 2017 @ 6:26pm by Captain Garridan Rismore in General News

Thanks to Michael who brought it up in our OOC discussion, it looks like one of our own has won two major awards in Bravo Fleet for 2016.

I would like to congratulate Shannon (who as we all know plays Lieutenant Commander David Stross Jr.), for winning both the Bravo Fleet Player of the Quarter for October to December, as well as the Bravo Fleet Player of the Year!

Wow! How incredible is that!?! Very well deserved and the Jericho wouldn't be where it is today without your help. Thanks for everything Shannon and keep up the good work. I've attached two new shiny OOC awards to your character bio. How are you going to top that one in 2017 I wonder?

» 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

» Changes In Bravo Fleet

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.

Site Things
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!

J.P. / Commander Garridan Rismore
