Sudden Rescue

Sudden Rescue by Jon Mollison

Ah, the trials and adventures of E.Z. Sudden, master and sole crewmember of a tramp starship, Jade Rose. In a galaxy with a human civilization held together by nobles and royals, threatened by an AI civilization of genocidal intent -- he has problems of his own.

He barely escapes a pirate, has to do some tedious tugging to get the full price for his cargo (he had sacrificed part to save the rest), and manages, in a lucky stroke, to salvage some items from wreckage. Boxes that need specialized skills to open.
When he gets them open, he discovers that his adventures have, really, just begun. 'cause if he doesn't care about politics, well, politics care about what he found. Involves a fractal space station, a man who can't decide whether he hates or loves his life as a miner, killing artificial gravity, a bar brawl, and more.
