Drake Midnight and the Missing Subtitle (2014)

Sci-fi novella

After a data retrieval mission goes badly wrong, Captain Drake Midnight of the Star Corps is assigned to a distant backwater of the galaxy in disgrace. Now he and his crew must try to earn back their reputation with the admiralty, but it won't be easy when they manage to turn a simple scouting mission into all-out rebellion.

"The intra-ship lift doors opened with a satisfying 'swoosh', and Breaker, reclining in the command chair, looked up from his portable game. Drake entered the bridge, his face a picture of determination as he scanned the bridge. Breaker stood up uncomfortably, smoothing out the creases in his uniform, then saluted in Drake's general direction.
'The, um... ah...,' he began, 'Drake is... er...'
Drake frowned slightly, folding his arms as Breaker struggled through his announcement.
'Captain! That's the one. The Captain is here. On the bridge... That is to say, the Captain is on the bridge.'
He looked around, smiling awkwardly. Drake shook his head and moved to the command chair, sitting down in a kind of relaxed-yet-confident manner which he thought made him look quite cool. In reality, it made him look a little distressed, as if he was trying to avoid sitting on a damp spot.
'What's our status?' he said to no-one in particular. The bridge crew shifted uneasily."
