Charlotte was beginning to wonder if John actually cared about what was telling him or was it simply because he was too preoccupied at the moment. Still it hurt that he hadn't even acknowledged the fact that she had said their daughter's name. However decided for now to not say anything and perhaps he might realise.

She was about to answer him when Josh and Knowdi arrived. Acknowledging the pair before the inevitable conversation started. Thinking she would be better off leaving them all to talk, in the hope they would knock some proverbially sense into John.

Charlotte left them too it in order to go prepare dinner for them all. She did consider telling them but doubted she would be heard and it would be obvious were she had gone

So she walked over to the kitchen area and started pulling out ingredients.

The comm officer on duty got a message beep on her console.

"Sir, message from the Klingon homeworld for Captain Shepard, priority one.", she said.

Lt. Wood's  eye popped open real wide.

"Contact the Captain now, ensign.", he ordered.

"So John have you thought more about your distinguished career?  You've done a lot of good within Starfleet.  To hell with what Patrick says.  He's been hiding behind the desk for so long he's forgotten what it's like to even travel at warp speeds.  There's a Commander at his office that said he hasn't left that sector even before the war started.  You've been out there,  fought alongside us, you know the names of those who served under you, it actually hurt you when we lost people.  Patrick doesn't even know nearly 70% of the people under his command and he sees them everyday day. I'm sorry to bring this all up now when we just got here but I had to say it."

John took a sip of his Wiskey then sighed

“I honestly Don’t know I just don’t want to be riding a desk as I know I get stuck with the Political problems of Earth. Patty not all bad he just under alot of pressure. In 2373 just before the War was in full swing one of early Battles his Ship the Essex was lost with all hands but him so he hides behind the Desk” Finished John

KnodwI shook his head.

"The comm was for you and the Admiral,  sir.  It would not be advisable right now.", he said.

Josh tapped his communicator.  =^=Shepard to Horizon. Two to beam to Starfleet Headquarters.=^= They vanished due to the transporter beam and seconds later they arrived at Starfleet Headquarters main yard. While walking they hardly said a word until they reached Admiral Brown's office door.  Josh turned to his former captain,  friend and brother.  "No matter what happens we're all still family.  Everyone will back you what ever happens in here."

Halfway through marinating the steaks and chicken pieces ready for grilling, Charlotte looked up as she heard the distinct noise of the transporter. Quickly realising that John and Josh had left without so much as a word too her. Taking a moment to lean against the workbench, wondering if she was actually cutout to continue. Her husband was cold, distant and at the moment didn't care one bit about  her or the baby.

Yes she knew that he was suffering what with the mission and subsequent fallout from it, but still did that give him the right to ignore her existence and push her away. It was frustrating yet she meant every word of her vows and wanting to stay with him. However hoped that things would improve, otherwise that might change.

Not knowing where they had gone or how long they would be, Charlotte continued for now and moved onto the salad and potatoes, thinking that she would at least feed her and Knowdi.

Better to tempt fate Josh eased on the side of caution.  "Has there been any communication from Voyager? "

Patrick nodded and sighed  before looking at him

“Yes Two Weeks ago there was a small message since the the Pathfinder Project is looking into resources to bring them home even using out Allies as there are in the Delta Quadrent and 75,000 Light years from home” Patrick stated

Josh looked at John and again at Patrick. "We'll do what we can to bring them home faster sir."
