Excession, from Iain M. Banks' Culture universe. This is Space Opera at its finest.

I'm only a few chapters in and am loving every minute of it. Excession is about the Minds encountering a so-called Outside Context Problem, which made me want to play a 4X or Civilization game again. I love all the terminology Mr. Banks is using — the Culture ships have such cool names (like "Clear Air Turbulence" from Consider Phlebas). Awesome stuff.
