Happy Birthday to the Jericho!

Posted on Tue Feb 25, 2014 @ 8:40am by Captain Garridan Rismore

I can't believe I forgot about this! I'm a few days late but I wanted to post this anyways.

It was a year ago yesterday that the Jericho became active and started recruiting. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that we'd be where we are today. I'm very proud of everyone who has made this journey possible. We've had our ups and downs, mostly in regards to our flaky first officers, but overall it's been a pretty smooth ride. Thank you.

Some will already know about how the theme of our story was first conceived. But for those who don't I'll try to keep it short! Naturally, it was over a year ago that I started putting the pieces together. I'd been re-watching DS9 at the time and watched the episode 'Playing God'. When I'd finished watching that episode I was like... 'I wonder what happened to that protouniverse after Dax put it back?'. That was pretty much the spawning point of the idea. The main thing that I want to do on the Jericho.. both in the past and in the future is to have that sense of adventure and exploration where no person has gone before. I wanted to do something that would be considered 'new' to our characters. In my opinion, there's only so much that a person can do in regards to dealing with the Klingons, the Cardassians or even the Borg. I wanted to deal with something that was untouched.

Long story short, YES we are going to be in the protouniverse for the long run. This is our story much like getting home was Voyager's story. The over-arcing theme of our story, based on what happened in the last mission is going to be Us VS. Veriathan. I wonder who's going to come out on top of that one? :P Nevertheless, it's how we get from the now to then that is the most important. I look forward to the character development that is to come on all fronts. I'm already seeing some really great things from people.

In closing, I want to say thank you but I also want to put an idea forth to you guys. As of right now there isn't a specific mission that is set in stone following our current one. I'd like to put it to any one of you guys to come up with a mission for us to do. Be imaginative! Be creative! Come up with something that has never been done before in Star Trek! We're in a realm where anything is possible. I'm also a huge fan of plots that involve specific characters. So come up with some ideas and let me know! I'm open to anything. This is our show. Let's continue to make it awesome.

I look forward to what's to come!

Happy birthday U.S.S. Jericho!
