Author Steve White was born in 1948. He is an American science fiction author, renowned for Starfire-series, along with David Weber. He is married and has three daughters, and currently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia. He also sells his works to a legal publishing company. Before writing, he served United States as a Navy Officer. He has served during the Vietnam War and worked through the Mediterranean regions.

Early Books:

His early published books were Prince of Sunset and Emperor of Dawn. Both the books were the beginning of his fiction writing era, which was later famous with the Starfire series. Prince of Sunset was about three college students Basil Castellan, Sonja and Torval, who had graduated from Imperial Deep Space Fleet Academy, and none of them knew about their crucial characters in the rising war storm in the galaxies. There are several fictional characters like dragons, which had to play major roles as they story unfolded. His second book, Emperor of Dawn, was another series of the previous book. It showed that an empire was in danger, due to a weak sybarite sitting on the throne, while a rebellion was rising just outside and around the earth. The main Emperor was assassinated, while General Ivar Brady-Schiovana became a forced ruler since the emperor’s son was coward and incompetent. The main characters include the same trio from the previous book, and the circumstances which they’d have to tackle are the real mystery to read through.

Starfire Series:

After these two books, Steve White wrote short stories, which were set in Starfire universe for the Task Force Games, Nexus magazine. He also wrote Starfire novel Insurrection (1990) along with David Weber after Nexus got cancelled. This book turned out to be the first in their tetralogy which continued till their last collaboration of The Shiva Option (2002). This book happened to be listed as the bestseller in New York Times. Steve White had also written Exodus (2007) along with Shirley Meier.

The Stars at War series is closely related to military science fiction. Going through this series gives us the imaginations amalgamated by Steve White and David Weber. The first one was Crusade, which talks about the time, a century after First Interstellar War. Neither sides of Human-Orion war had strength to defeat each other, so the settled into an uneasy peace, which was filled with hatred and mistrust on both ends. At this time, a ship appeared from and fired the Orion sentry ship. This ignited the interstellar war anew. This step was to liberate the Holy mother, who was captured in the world of apostates of Terran Federation, allied by satanic Khanate of Orion.

Before the second popular book, they had worked on Insurrection. It told about the Terran Republic fights towards independence, against the corporate control and overbearing power of the Terran Federation. The next part ‘In Death Ground’ was more popular. This marked the Fourth Interstellar war, when Grand Alliance engaged in mutual self defense, instead of the horrific onslaught of Arachnid Omnivoracity, while they were in their search for more protein sources. The human race, with two other races in the galaxy had made peace, until they discovered the fourth race – Bugs. These newcomers were mind-numbingly aliens, who had overwhelming numbers in their brains, and all other species were food to them. No one makes peace with their invaders, and the battles explode the galaxy. The end marks the conclusion on who is eaten or killed!

The legacy continued with The Stars at War II, which was printed in July 2005. This was an omnibus comprising of two novels – The Shiva Option, followed by a revised and extended version of Insurrection. The Shiva Option showed the character of Survey Flotilla who was a friendly diplomat. He was trapped behind the enemy lines and also managed his traumatized yet powerful empire. The Star Union joined hands with the Grand Alliance to fight the menace of Arachnid.

After this, Exodus was released. This was collaborated by Steve White and Shirley Meier. It showed how the characters evacuated their civilization from the sun going nova to look for a new world. The xenophobic Arduans had a cultural clash with Grand Alliance, and they fought for survival. Steve White also worked with Charles E. Gannon in Extremis. It was a continuation of the fights between Arduans and Grand Alliance. The story unfolds as they face challenging communications gaps, which obstruct and complicate everything. Finally, this series ends with book Imperative, which was also in collaboration with Charles E. Gannon.

Starfire Games:

The series has been based into game, which revolves around the incidents of the story. It was designed to be a fast-paced game of which had easy-to-use starship design system, along with the progression of technology. The initial edition was followed by a couple supplements – the first was added fighters, and then a campaign system. Over the years, the game had expanded but still remained tactical and quick witted.

The series had begun a fleet-level table-top game, and the system was incredible for building and handling starships. The unique concept of the game was the Warp Points for interstellar travel and that gained more demand. Rather than tackling ‘Faster Then Light’, it was important to travel the interstellar travel. Starfire space had natural ‘wormholes’ all over the galaxy for allowing the sub-light ships to travel by the star systems. Thus, there was no strict ‘Faster Then Light’ technology used.

The games didn’t just need tactical and strategic levels to play through, but they were to combat the system uses with the help of the operational scale. The battles were resolved with tactical knowledge on a hex-grid map. However, right above the tactical level there was a system scale. This scale was used to maneuver the starships and to detect the enemy ships and bases. It was added by ‘Fog of War’ which made the operational level more difficult and tactical to play the battles. The best way to place the games were to first have sound knowledge of the books. Every edition had some clues which could make the battles easier to play.
