the human race meets the Lowan, and become enslaved. One human hooks up with a resistance group and they find the Starhammer. An ancient weapon meant to fight the Vang, it destroys stars at a time. Ends rather abruptly with the humans dictating terms to the Lowan.

A book in the Vang series. However, has almost nothing to do with the Vang. A story about how the humans were enslaved and then freed from the Lowan. To much Lowan, not NEARLY enough Vang.

2000 years after The Military Form. Another Vang is found, this time a battlemaster.

Sadly, this book was not nearly as engaging or exciting to read. The battlemaster was obsessed with getting back to its homeworld instead of taking over human space. Once there, and it realized the Axon-Neurone time was over, it just gave up.

Not much fun reading about an alien that just makes diversions so it can go home to die. Pooh.

an ancient alien lifeform is recovered from space and ends up taking over a world, which is then nuked to prevent it taking over other planets.

This was how “Alien” should have been. Alien lifeform takes over humans and changes them to ultimate warriors and spreads like wildfire. Very violent, lots of fighting, lots of people writhing in agony while being taken over. Just as good as I remember from back in junior/highschool.
