Here's the opening to my own tale, J is for Junker Joe:
Joe caught the faint echo of the hulk on his ship’s sensors. Excitement buzzed through him, a thrill that never got old. Goddamn sweet. No way was this a lump of space rock. No mistaking those clean lines even through the fuzz of the cracked display. A ship. The shattered remains of a ruined spacecraft. A huge spacecraft.
A thing of goddamn beauty. To a junker like him, the most beautiful sight in the whole wide universe.
