A/N: Takes place in an AU where Archer and Trip are father and son. Includes Archer/Hernandez.
As they prepared to board Enterprise, Archer, Trip and Erika paused to say their goodbyes.
"We're going to miss you," Jon said, squeezing his wife's hand.
"Sure will," said Trip, slightly emotional.
Erika smiled wistfully. "Wish I were going with you."
They took turns hugging, and then Jon said, "I guess we'd better get aboard."
As Jon and Trip turned to go, they heard Erika call out, "one more thing..."
When they turned back, she said, with a deadpan expression, "I expect you to keep him in line."
Jon and Trip looked at one another, and then Trip replied, "I'll do my best."
