Now I really liked 3 of them and this galactic spanning stuff is not really my favorite. They are:
Hard Duty by Mark E. Cooper, A meaty, multi view-pointed and multi-layered story, I am a sucker for some first contact too.
Bypass Gemini by Joseph Lallo, A fun space opera romp is a bit more in the category of rogues & pirates, that is also very funny.
First Conquest by David Vandyke, Ship to ship space battles better than I have ever seen done, something that usually bores me.
I have not read or reviewed First Conquest (the last in this anthology): it is essentially one long battle in an interesting universe with desperate back-against-the wall humanity up against a much more powerful foe. Fortunately, the commander is very lucky. If you like space battles, this one is for you.
The first story (Ambassador 1) is a great universe, with good characters and fun action, though suspending disbelief about both the human and the alien cultures may prove difficult at times. (It is also odd for the hero to introduce a powerful technology, then spend half the book not using it, just so the plot can go forward without it.) Still a fun read though.
It's science fiction. The science ought to make some kind of sense. the military SF ought to make sense in some military sense, but it didn't.

1. The backworlds. M Pax. 1st of 7 in backworlds series. Poor, difficult to follow, uninteresting.
2. Ambassedor. Patty Jensen. 1st of 10 in ambassedor series. Excellent - more like a spy thriler. Rest of the series rather pricey.
3. Alien Hunters. Daniel Arensen. 1st of 3 in Alien Hunters series. Excellent. Funny, OTT, far fetched, not to be taken seroiusly. In short FUN to read.
4. Hard Duty. Mark E Cooper. 1st of 5 in Merkiaari wars. Very good but left hanging which is frustrating. Rest of the series pricey.
5. Bypass Gemini. Joseph Lallo. 1st of 5 in the Big Sigma series. Very good.
6. Sky hunter. Chris Reher. 1st of 5 in series Taragon Tales. Very good.
7. 1st Conquest. David Van dyke. 1st of 5 in Plague wars-Stellar conquest series. Good though the battle scenes of which there are many are a bit repetative, but riviting nonetheless.
Overall a worthwhile compendulum.
