Delta-Team – by M. D. Cooper
In 8913, a crack military unit was court-martialed and sent to a maximum security prison for stealing the general’s cookie recipes. Colonel Ramsey and his team promptly escaped and fled the core systems.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find, then maybe, you can hire the Delta Team.
The Methane Lake of Excruciating Tedium – by Felix R. Savage
Climatologist Beddard Godwin is elated when he gets a chance to work on Titan, a moon of Saturn so cold that liquid methane forms lakes on the surface.

But when a mysterious passenger appears in his boat, he discovers that there are much, much worse things than other human beings on Titan…
The Last Bounty – by Barry J. Hutchison
Once the baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy, all Konto Oon wants these days is a quiet family life with the woman he loves, and the respect of Deenia, the step-daughter who hates his guts. But when Deenia is taken hostage, Konto must employ all his skills to mount a death-defying rescue mission.
With a terrorist-filled station between him and the hostages, and an infuriatingly upbeat boy from Deenia’s class for company, Konto’s talents will be stretched to their limit as he goes after the most important bounty of his life—his daughter.

The crew of the Barnburner are misfits and trouble makers with a food replicator that doesn’t work, a clinically depressed AI; and when duty calls they’re late. Unfortunately for the fate of the planet, it’ll be up to them to stop a horde of space bees from invading Earth—or at least get stung trying.
Brewing Trouble – by Amy Duboff

Redshirts don’t get a happily-ever-after.
