Back to the to-read pile ...
Finished Hellburner last night, with my brain feeling a tad like I'd been going through the high-v training with the characters. So very VERY intense and GOOD! For all my how-did-I-miss-reading-this-years-ago?, I'm glad I got to have the joy of reading it for the first time now ... even though I know it came out twenty-one years ago it still felt like the exhiliration of getting a brand-new sequel to an old favourite. dustdaughter, if you've not read these then you've a new female character to add to your list: Sal Aboujib. Someone you want on your side in a spaceship or a bar fight. ;-)

From my cataloguing software's' Pick of the Day feature:
Reading: Asterix and Caesar's Gift by Goscinny and Uderzo.
Listening: Bloodwood, by Alan Dargin and Michael Atherton.
Viewing: Barney Miller (season three, episode six: "Werewolf")

I enjoyed the Hellburner series very much, I confess I remember little of it since it's been so long but since I read it, it was a rollicking good adventure!

Must be time for you to re-read 'em! All I could remember of Heavy Time was that the accident wasn't an accident and Dekker being in many ways an "ancestor" of River Tam) ... the rest was joyful rediscovery of, as you say, a rollicking good adventure + business/political corruption + military espionage + the obvious cultural/linguistic drift between the different human cultures!

Thanks to Kobo acquiring a bunch of Cherryh ebooks (they've more than doubled the title list recently), I finally have a copy of Chanur's Legacy. So that's what I'm reading now. :-)
