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!

Current Mission: Natural Instinct

Stardate 64731.5 - Veriathan's attack on the Jericho has left the crew desperate in finding some polysilicate verterium and monocrystal cortenum to repair the inner layer of the port nacelle. With the help of Commodore Zembosi, a Class P planet has been located approximately 4.7 light-years away which could yield the minerals that the Ambassador-class starship requires in order to continue its mission in the Dax Protouniverse.

» A New Map!

Posted on Mon Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:49am by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Hey guys!

So since we're now doing a new mission I needed to update the map. Originally the plan was to update that big map of the whole Dax Protouniverse but when I started trying to do so I wasn't really getting what I wanted out of it. So I've made a new blown up map that will be much easier for me to update. As always you can find it in the set of images for the Protouniverse in our Tour section. Here is the link:

And the image made smaller.

» A New Month!

Posted on Mon Dec 1, 2014 @ 10:25am by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Hey everyone!

It's December. Already! This month can be a little hectic for people because of the holidays. That's completely O.K. Real life always comes first. With all of that being said, I do want to thank everyone again for the effort you put in so we could finally wrap up our mission last month.

I'd like to see us keep things going in December. I know that Christmas is coming but there's still alot of time between now and then. Let's try to get about 5-8 posts out this month. There's no pressure to get this done. You won't get like... attacked by Tribbles if we don't meet this. It's just something that I'd like to see. I want to see people interacting more with others. Some of you have already started to do that which is great! The mission notes at the top of the screen when you reply to posts has some information in regards to what we'll be tackling in this mission. Work on some subplots if you must as well. Things are best when people are writing!

I don't think I have much else to say. I'm still planning on getting those forums up. The plan is to try and do that this month. Hopefully it works this time as I was having problems integrating the chat feature into it. I will probably be updating the map to include Choss soon as well.

Anyhow, that's all from me. Let me know if you want to do a joint post. I am always open for anything as long as it makes sense! Take care everyone!

» End of Episode Number 3!

Posted on Sat Nov 15, 2014 @ 9:47pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Hello everyone! So as planned, we have brought Episode #3 - The Trial of Garridan Rismore to a close. Hooray! A big thank you to everyone who took part in it. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Regarding the mission itself, I don't think it really went according to how I had hoped. We ended up with only 36 posts which for the length of time this mission took isn't really good enough. With that being said it's nobody else's fault but my own. I know the mission really restrained alot of people. I didn't really expect it to when I conceived it but it did. I am still learning. I'm not perfect and I can only take all of this and keep pressing forward and try to do better. Hopefully with our next mission people will feel like they have more freedom to play around with. One thing that I would like to see improved is for more character interaction between people. As of right now we have eleven players. Let's see some more joint posts between people!

Just a reminder that all those who wrote a post or took part in one in the last mission will have received a mission commendation. It has been attached to your character bios!

Our next mission, Episode #4 is titled 'Natural Instinct' and will take us to the snowy and glacial planet of Choss where we need to get some minerals to repair a couple of our warp coils. While we may end up talking about Veriathan a little bit, this mission is intended to give us a little break from him. As always, if anyone has any ideas for future missions, please send me a PM! I'd love to hear it and who knows, maybe we can somehow make it fit. The Protouniverse is pretty much a blank canvas where almost anything can happen.

In closing there is a challenge that I would like to set upon us from here-on in. For the last half of November I would like to see us try to get out a total of 5 posts whether they are solo or joint posts. From that point I'd like to see 10 posts per month. I'm not going to 'enforce' it. I want to encourage it. Real life does sometimes happen which prevents people from doing stuff but let's try. It'll only benefit us in the end.

I will be starting posts with a couple of people for the start of the new mission so stay tuned for that. And, if you're ever interested in doing a joint post with me or with any of my NPCs (I think I have a few) then let me know! You guys can always create NPCs as well.. if they're in another department make sure to ask the dept. head first though!

I think that's all I want to say. Good job everyone. Let's make the next mission better than the last. I look forward to writing with you!

» A Map!

Posted on Sun Jul 6, 2014 @ 3:24pm by Commander Garridan Rismore in General News

Hi guys!

I just wanted to bring to your attention a new goodie in our 'Tour' section. I've made us a little map that will be updated as we go along from mission to mission. Right now it's pretty bare but it'll become more populated as we continue. I may work on another map very soon which is less of the whole protouniverse and more focused on that one specific section that we're in right now. Maybe this week. We'll see.

So I completely forgot to tell you guys about this. Meant to do so a few hours ago but it slipped my mind. XD. Anyways. I have news! As some of you might know already, and from the post that was just sent out today, Shannon who plays Lieutenant Stross is now the Jericho's XO! Hooray! While I was originally planning to put Karen in that spot following the loss of both Drew and Bobby *grumble grumble*, Shannon really stepped up and proved to me that he was deserving of that position so I gave it to him! His character will be doubling up as XO and Chief Engineer. It'll give him lots to do. So for any XO-related stuff, please go and see him! Also, Karen who plays Lieutenant JG Oldan was given the Second Officer position. This is mostly my fall-back in case something ever happens to Shannon. While I hope that won't be the case.. it needs to be there nonetheless. I hate going through XOs and hope that this one will finally work out for us. We have many fun things planned and we're actually getting to missions now. As always, if you have any ideas for missions please let me or Shannon know and we can talk about it! :D Anyhow, that's all for now. Keep going with our awesome posts guys!
