Characters: Jeff Tracy, the Tracy brothers
Summary: Based on TOS. “Nothing stays the same forever.” It’s 2069 and lots of changes are happening on Tracy Island. The family is growing and so too is the IR crew. However, for one brother, a life-altering incident will mean that things will never be the same again. Rated T for some bad language and difficult themes. **Not an OC-centric fic.** WIP.
****Nothing explicit, but definite squick warning from here on in.****

Sleep came but when he awoke, Jeff Tracy felt far from
rested. He sat up in the plush hotel bed and sat for a moment, trying to get
his plan of action straight in his head. Later, he would have to do something
he never thought he would have to. Later, he was going to have to make a public
appeal for the return of his son.
Jeff planted his feet on the floor and curled his toes
into the carpet. This was going to be news. Big news. The disappearance of the son
of an ex-astronaut-turned-billionaire industrialist was going to draw news
teams from all over the world.
He pushed himself to his feet and started to get ready,
pulling on his clothing and grabbing his wallet. It was more photo album than
wallet, really. In truth, that still wasn’t accurate. It was more of a
communication device, since it held the portraits of his sons that doubled as
portable comm. links. Jeff opened it and flicked to the third photograph. His
eyes lingered for some time on the face of his son.
