** In a later season this happens to Captain Picard of all people. He only learns he ''had'' a son because a Ferengi with a grudge against him makes threats against his life, and their reunion gets off to a bad start. That the son in question is a bit of a SatisfiedStreetRat with a lengthy rap sheet for petty theft and disorderly conduct doesn't help... [[spoiler: And then it turns out that Picard, who is less upset by the boy's troubled past than one might expect, isn't actually his father after all.]]

To qualify for this trope, a male (who need not necessarily be related to the child, [[PromotionToParent simply acting in a fatherly role]]) must suddenly be given sole responsibility over this child AND not have enough prior experience in this capacity to know what the heck he is doing. Maybe there was a divorce, and the kid lived with Mom but she died or ran off. Maybe he just took in an unrelated child off the streets, or his KidFromTheFuture ended up on his doorstep. Either way, he has to shape up ''fast.''
