Sawyer, Robert J. -- Starplex

Silly, unless I pretend I'm 16 and reading Analog, and then it's all too familiar. Only it came out when I was 26 and not reading Analog any more. Whoops. Giant multispecies starship (a la Brin), incursions from the Eschaton (a la Bear), long arguments about shadow matter (a la Baen Books and it's 1985 forever), you get the idea.
