Whatever Happened to Charlie Biggs?: A Salvage Title Universe Story Kindle Edition
They say adventure is months of boredom punctuated by hours of sheer terror. It's a saying Charlie Biggs - a career Officer on the Benthi Federation's orbital ring security force - can absolutely tell you is true. When a routine check into some noisy alien visitors coincides with an attack on the station, It's up to Charlie to sort things out - even when the authorities on the station seem to want them dead.
Whatever Happened to Charlie Biggs? Is a short story of 10200 words in the Salvage Title Universe.

Where it all began...
They couldn’t afford a ship, much less the cost of registering one. But there is always a loophole....
Harmon Tomeral wanted nothing more than to go to space. Sent to an orphanage when his parents were killed in a sandstorm, the odds were stacked against him. Despite that, he made it to the academy and graduated in the top 10 percent of his class...only to find out the fleet did what it wanted, regardless of regulations, and he came from the wrong planet.
He didn’t give up his dream, though, because where there’s a will, there’s a loophole, and Harmon and his friends found their loophole in the Top Fleet Marine competition - the winner would get 100,000 credits, which would just be enough to start their own salvage company. If they could build a mech and win the competition, they would be set.
But the fleet had already shown they didn’t want him in space, so it would be an uphill fight. Good thing his friends and crew were very much against fleet regulations.
From the Author
Charlie was the kind of character that didn't need his own story in the context of the novel, but the more I thought about him, the more I wondered what had happened. I wanted to do an intersecting short with an exploration of how the events in NOS turned Charlie's life upside down and what that means for the future.
