Honestly, all I wanted was an unusual idea for this challenge, lol. Since writing it though, I have come to agree with you. That character has far too much potential to be just wasted.
My basic idea for what happens next is that he is taken to Earth, or maybe Trill, and fostered out for a few years. After that, he is entered into Starfleet Academy. Haven't thought much beyond that. I currently have a lot of writing on my plate (Jinx's background is turning into a novel it seems, lol - if anyone wants to read it, let me know), but I'll have to come back to this character later on.
I think complicated relationships are just going to be a fact of life in Starfleet, especially for ships (like the Athena) that spend very little time in dock. Bryan runs his crew very tightly when they're on duty, so he generally lets more slide when they're off. This has more than once caused issues on board, but the issue is generally dealt with quickly.
