Lots of terrific character moments in this tale, chief among those a look into Kincaid's strained relationship with his biological father.
I love the sudden and unexpected reveal that the boy is actually his younger half-brother. Jesse's reaction to the situation really solidifies his moral character.
Sending the boy to live with his mom is the child's best chance for a normal life. It's either that or being hauled from post to post in Starfleet.
Wonderful backstory here, and the possibility of Kincaid's departure from Farragut
certainly sent some of the crew into a tizzy.
