You might take a peek at Simon Green's Deathstalker series. I don't particularly care for sci-fi, but I do enjoy Simon Green so I gave the series a try. 3 books in so far (out of 8, IIRC), and it's fairly good stuff. Definitely qualifies in the "space opera" category including lots of the specific aspects you want.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
