Anyone have any good "space opera" sci-fi recommendations? Especially stuff kind of like Star Trek where it involves space exploration, planetary adventures and dealing with alien cultures? Or the kind of stuff that might have inspired the game Starflight? My sci-fi reading experience has been pretty limited as I've largely stuck to fantasy over the years. But I'm really in the mood for some good space opera sci-fi lately.

As for what I've been reading - mostly I've been listening to audio books as that is all I've had time for - I can listen while I work. Been listening to "The Dying Earth" by Jack Vance which is brilliant imaginative stuff. I can really see how Vance influenced D&D / Gary Gygax. Also listened to "Swords and Ice Magic" by Fritz Leiber. I'm a long time fan of Leiber's Fafrd / Gray Mouser stuff - always fun to read.
