The Salvage of Core 925

Page
The crew of a salvage trawler comes upon a hundred-year-old satellite and must determine if it is a piece of space junk or a valuable artifact.

On this page, you’ll find the podcast episode trailer and the full episode.
And of course, a link to the source, the short story.


[Video description: 33 seconds. Digital drawing. View through the window of a spaceship. Support beams between the three main window panels angle away from center to edges of frame. At left a seated figure seen from behind and from shoulders up, right hand perched over a console with index finger out, as if prepared to press a button. At right, a standing figure seen in left profile from waist up, arms crossed and looking out at the object beyond the window.  The object is a satellite with two dishes connected to a boxy central structure and two receiver antennae.  Extending toward the satellite from somewhere out of right frame is a robotic arm. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lays over the image. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Science Fiction” and story title are displayed over the image. The title and title card fade. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “‘We can’t do anything to help these people,’ he said. ‘They’re all dead. We’re just…stirring stuff up. What if their troubled spirits are still around?’ ‘I’d like to trouble a spirit,’ Robbie said. ‘How about that huge bottle of whiskey that Duorsky is trying to hide in his cubby?’ ‘We’ll be back home in about a week,’ Thurston said. ‘We can keep reading until then to see if we find anything mind-boggling, then turn it over.’” Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades as text box appears over image displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.” Title reappears at top.]

EXCERPT:
“From this far out, it looks to be about…a hundred or so years,” Jiang said. “Largely intact.”

Thurston turned to her. “And no one else has claimed it yet? That’s unlikely.”

“What should I do, boss?” the pilot asked.
