You could also look at SJG's GURPS: Terradyne source book
(although its quite old, and has been out of print for quite
a while).

If you don't mind non-gaming sources, you could have a look
Alistair Reynolds novels (Revelation Space, Chasm City, Redemption
Ark). Most of the space combat is in the third book, but
you should at least read Revelation Space first.

Also, The Forever War is a mostly sub-light background and you
could probably remove the "collapsar" jump-gates without ruining
the feel of it.
