Space Opera

I just got done reading Elizabeth Moon's Engaging the Enemy. This is the third book in her Vatta's War series and I kept getting the story confused with Mike Shepherd's (Mike Moscoe in disguise) Kris Longknife series. I kept expecting characters to appear and then realized it's from the other series which got me thinking about several of my science fiction series and how much resemblance there is between some of them.
This is just a short list I picked out of several sci fi authors in My Library! Most of them have more than just the series I've mentioned published.

David Weber
Ongoing series about Honor Harrington. Young woman joins Space Fleet. Military characters. Longevity issues. Two star Empires at war.

Elizabeth Moon
Heris Serrano/Esmay Suiza series. Young woman joins Space Fleet. Military characters. Longevity issues.
I hope that there's more in this series!
Ongoing series about Kylara Vatta (Vatta's War). Young woman from wealthy family joins Space Fleet. Military characters.

Mike Shepherd
Ongoing series about Kris Longknife. Young woman from wealthy family joins Space Fleet. Military characters.

And I wonder why I got confused!
Here's a few more I read thrown in for good measure!

Catherine Asaro
Ongoing series about the Skolian Empire. Two star Empires at war.

Debra Doyle/James D. MacDonald
Ongoing series about the Mageworlds. Two star Empires at war.

Kristine Smith
Ongoing series about Jani Kilian. Young woman in Space Fleet. Military characters. Aliens.

Lois McMaster Bujold - I'm not even halfway through this series yet!
Ongoing series about Miles Vorkosigan. Young man from wealthy family wants to join Space Fleet. Military characters.
