 Honorverse
The Honorverse is the semi-official name for the setting of a military science fiction series of stories by David Weber featuring Honor Harrington, the Nelsonesque heroine in the Horatio Hornblower type of contemporary and popular book series (New releases regularly reach the New York Times best sellers list).
Technological advances in the Honorverse have come slow and far between for most of the 500 years of the Star Kingdom of Manticore's existence, and as the series opens, the stagnation in technology leads to a similar stagnation in both strategy and military tactics.
The grav-wave propulsion systems require "gun ports" and captains strive to position their ships to maximize their fire power by using a broadside akin to the unturreted days dominated by the warships and battleships of the Age of Sail, and like Horatio Hornblower, Honor Stephanie Harrington is a superb ship handler bordering on genius.

With the most recent group of short stories and novels in the \"Honorverse\" Weber and his collaborators seem to be establishing three groups of characters and storylines, which they are all linked in a reasonably consistent manner into one history.
The first main difference between \"Crown of Slaves\" and most of the other books in the Honorverse is that the main enemy is the genetic slavers, the companies who traffic in slaves (particularly Manpower) and the government officials they have bought.
Crown of Slaves is a great spinoff story in Weber's Honorverse, and I look forward to more Honorverse novels, both in the HH series as well as with spinoff novels/siereis such as Crown of Slaves and The Shadow of Saganami.

 The Quern   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In this new series, Weber proves that the Honorverse is greater than Honor Harrington, and that he can write a novel that is fully as compelling as his earlier work without relying on Honor at all.
Weber’s writing skills are on display, his characters are heroic without being superhuman, the action is at the individual ship or squadron level where the excitement is highest, and all the baggage of Honor is missing.
Recently, however, he has written a standalone Honorverse novel with Eric Flint, and several characters and plot elements from that work were major factors in The Shadow of Saganami.

I recently announced that my Honorverse web site had been chosen as the basis for the canonical images of the rank insignia for the Honor Harrington book series.
Subsequently, I was told that David Weber, the Author of the Honorverse book series, felt that I had misrepresented my work as being somehow part of the official canon of the Honorverse.
Weber asked me to post a prominent disclaimer at the Honorverse web site, making it clear that the imagery there was not, in way, canonical, or approved by Mr.

The first main difference between "Crown of Slaves" and most of the other books in the Honorverse is that the main enemy is the genetic slavers, the companies who traffic in slaves (particularly Manpower) and the governments they have bought.
Agents from Manticore and Grayson are practically allied with agents from Haven against the slavers, despite the fact that their countries are involved in a very bitter war.
The truly convincing characterisation and witty bantering humour that marks Weber as an exceptional writer of the Sci-Fi genre are present as always, and lighten the otherwise grim but spectacular space-warfare and devious intrigue flavoured by Eric Flint.

The system reproduces the feel of Honorverse battles from the books extremely well, even to the point where it models the attrition of missile salvos by several layers of defenses from countermissiles down to sidewall.
I was also impressed by the fact that the designer, Ken Burnside, modeled physics so carefully in his ruleset that there are explanatory sections describing the heat-dissipation equations he used.

Also, since technology in wartime developes swiftly, we're going to need to pick one era to start with -- OBS is probably best, minus a little set of weapons a certain Admiral deems necessary to mount on the ship -- and incorporate the others later on.
I simply cannot stress this enough as otherwise the tone of the universe and the fundamentals of the technology won't be nearly as clear.

Major Honorverse ships use what is called an Impeller Wedge for normal-space propulsion.
This wedge is a band of artificially generated gravity fields of unbelievable intensity both above and below the ship.
For example, the HMS Tramontane, an Edward Saganami class heavy cruiser has an official maximum acceleration of 604g in normal space.
