Combat Salvage 2165
Tig Meester tried not to think about the war in space, but now he has nowhere else to go. He enlists with the Staas Privateers and tests out as an AMTS Redsuit, an astronautics maintenance technician and damage control specialist. He's assigned to the carrier Hardway. When a ship vital to the war effort is crippled in enemy-occupied space, Tig goes on the repair mission thinking he's finally gotten a chance to prove himself.The Lancers of the 133rd Squadron are along for the ride, but even if the war's most experienced aces can keep the redsuits alive, Tig still has to face the fact that if he isn't as good as he says he is, then they're all going to die.
