Jack goes to the Training Facility to witness Tracer and Genji practicing their combat skills. Mercy and Winston give Jack an update on Tracer's condition, saying that she's mostly stable. Jack requests to see Tracer in his office. Jack begins to discuss Tracer's request to be promoted to active duty.

For the first couple of years, the ship was a rare one in Overwatch fandom. The most people would do would joke about 76 being the dad of Overwatch, which Tracer was a part of.

With the release of Bastet, there was resurgence in exploring their relationship. The comic revealed that Soldier: 76 was gay, and Tracer had revealed to be a lesbian three years prior. Fans started to depict the two as friends, creating art of the two in pride outfits, and instantly having a connection due to their shared queer status. There were also art and memes depicting the two as a "Gay Dad and his Lesbian Daughter.
