Captain Kathryn Janeway walked on the bridge of the star ship Voyager. It had been over two decades since they'd gotten back to the alpha quadrant and after a rough first year back to Earth including much turmoil within the crew everyone had come back to the ship to continue being a crew minus some few changes here and there, including some children and some marriages. Commander Chakotay turned around and smiled at his wife of the last twenty years as she sat in the chair right beside him, "Good morning love, where are the kids?"
"Machk is in class, I just left him there. As for our daughter, Shana is on the ship that much I do know," she sighed as she sat down. Kathryn's husband looked at her sternly. "Chakotay, don't look at me like that. She was getting ready for class and then when she came out, you should have seen what she was wearing. I told her to go change and then she yelled at me for not letting her be herself and ran off; I tried to track her down but she left her commbadge in her room. Probably on purpose, I would have."
"Kathryn, love, relax she is probably with her friends, okay"
"That's just it I just left all of the kids she hangs out with, all except Brook Paris, in class with Machk. I'm worried about her, and after what I said to her this morning after she yelled at me. I…I just don't want her to be so mad at me and do something stupid," she said putting her head in her hands.
***Commander Tuvoc to the bridge***
"Captain Janeway here"
***We've found Miss Janeway***
"What? Where? Is she okay? How? You found her."
*** I think you should ask her. Meet us in sick bay Captain and please bring the Commander and Lieutenants Paris and Torres-Paris with you***
The four parents looked at each other, each wondering why all of them were needed. As the mothers started walking towards the turbo lift talking to each other, the two men fallowed them intent on what their own child had done.
"Our parents are going to ground us; then kill us, you know."
"I know Brook just shut up will you. Mom is already going to kill me for skipping class, and when she finds out what I, we were doing while skipping class she is going to send me to fluidic space or the Borg somehow even if we aren't in the Delta Quadrant anymore," The pair was sitting on bio-beds in sick bay talking to each other when the four parents walked in.
"Shit here they come we are screwed Shana screwed. Dad's never goanna let me pilot the Delta Flyer now."
"Would you stop over reacting Brook. You can just say you're sorry it always works with my dad."
"Yeah but that's your dad not mine, and besides Uncle Chakotay always takes your side you're his little girl remember."
"I suppose you're right but also Uncle Tom says you're his favorite non-binary child doesn't he?"
"I'm his only non-binary child Shana, which is beside the point."
"Fair enough. Spirits here they come."
"Captain, Commander, Lieutenants over here if you would," said Lt. Commander Tuvoc.
"Yes Tuvoc. Where did you find the two of them?" Something inside of Kathryn Janeway told her she was not going to like what the Vulcan told her.
"Yeah, Tuvoc why did you need me and B'Elanna for anyway. We had left Brook in class this morning."
"That is not how I found them Lieutenant Paris."
"Well how do you find them Tuvoc?" B'Elanna asked her voice dripping with its usual brand of sarcasm.
"I can answer that Captain," the EMH looked from one parent to another. "The commander found Miss Janeway and Ensign Paris in an extremely compromising position."
"What kind of compromising position Doctor?"
"Well they were ah…"
"Doc just spit it out" barked Lt. Paris
"Fine, we found them in Lt. Mirral Paris-Janeway's courters. Lying on the couch asleep together."
"What is so bad about that? It's not as if they had their clothes off… Right?" Tom Paris stated.
"Actually that is exactly how we found them Mister Paris."
"Pardon? That's impossible." Kathryn Janeway was speechless as B'elanna Torres-Paris yelled at the stunned EMH.
"Captain I also need to tell you and the commander something."
"Yes Doctor we're listening."
"The two seem to have done this before because Miss Shana Janeway is eight weeks pregnant."
"My daughter is pregnant?" Kathryn Janeway screamed at her husband and the EMH, then in a blur of red and black she ran to the young couple on the bio-beds. The two right behind her "Shana Kanti Janeway you are grounded for life young lady and I forbid you to see Ensign Paris Ever again!"
"Mom you have no say in the matter I'm 18 now and legally an adult now so I will do what I want to do thank you very much," The Commander was now behind his wife and he put his hand on her shoulder.
"Kathryn calm down. Good, now Shana has the doctor told you and Brook about your…um… condition."
"Yes Daddy he has, and I'm pregnant not dying okay," she responded rolling her eyes slightly
"Shana do not speak to your father that way," Kathryn Janeway had almost all she could take from her daughter.
"Kathryn its fine. Well Shana what are you going to do about this child you're having. Am I correct in assuming you're keeping it?"
"Yes, you are Daddy. Brook and I are planning on getting married and raising this baby together. Any problems with that?"
"No but how do you plan on doing that young lady?" Chakotay was trying to keep a cool head. His wife had just gone off at their daughter, their pregnant daughter, and he was trying not to think about strangling Brook, who was standing beside her trying not to look scared, but who wouldn't be scared in a situation like this. The commander laughed inwardly at the site of his small boned, stubborn wife and his daughter who was bigger than her mother in both height and weight, death glare each other; and Brook was right in the middle of it looking like they might just pass out from sheer fear of the two Janeway women.
"We plan on getting jobs in Starfleet like our parents while taking care of this baby Father." Shana knew her dad was deeply hurt when she called him father instead of the loving daddy. Just then the doctor, who had been trying to get the whole group's attention for the past few minutes, loudly asked if the grandparents and parents-to-be would polity shut up for a moment he had some information to give to them.
"Thank you now miss you will have to come see me for check-ups regularly, Ensign Paris you will see to it that she is here on time."
"Aye, sir," Brook said he looked up at the EMH then back down on to the floor fearful to look at anyone.
"Good here is a list of vitamins and other information you need to know. Now would anyone like to know what the sex is?"
"No we just what to know if the baby is healthy," The younger woman said first as she looked at the older two with a smug, proud smile on her face.
"Fine with me. Let's just get the scanners. This will only take a minute."
"Okay the five of us have to get back to the bridge; we will talk about this later young lady," Kathryn Janeway stated as she began to walk out the door
"That goes double for you Brook," Barked the chief engineer as she staked towards the door. The two men just shrugged and pointing toward their respective wives and mouthed 'what she said' and followed them. Right before they all exited the door the doctor yelled,
"Congrats to you both you have perfectly healthy twins."
"Twins. Brook we're having twins." Shana exclaimed. She looked at her partner and started to cry.
"I know, I heard," Brook hugged their girlfriend and started to cry as well. They looked at Shana and nodded their head as if saying something only the two could understand. "So Doc can you tell us what the sex of the twins are?"
"Better yet I can show you." The Doctor walked over to the console while the four parents slowly walked over to the young couple who were both crying and hugging each other.
