A work/franchise only has to have military components to it to count, it doesn't need to be nothing but military. Also trimmed some other stuff, and adjusted WC to multimedia.
* The ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series is a mixed bag: part one is pretty clear cut, with military regulations and chain of command playing a major role in the story. In part two, however, Shepard cuts all ties to the Alliance military and goes rogue with the Cerberus, who give their agents full autonomy and only care that the job gets done--the whole "military" aspect of sci-fi quietly leaves the room. In part three, Shepard is back with the Alliance but with the Reapers attacking the galaxy, s/he is left to run around unsupervised, only occasionally reporting back to [[BigGood Admiral Hackett]], like s/he did to the Illusive Man in the previous game. ** However, even in part one, Shepard obtains Spectre status quite quickly, at which point s/he is not tied to the Alliance military anymore. S/he technically answers to the Council, but seeing as the latter does not want to have much to do with him/her, Shepard basically acts alone, much like the conventional RPG hero/party. Considering the fact that most members of said party who are later recruited are a) aliens and b) most do not belong to any military organization (anymore) and answer only to Shepard, the "chain of command" and "military regulations part" goes out the window pretty quickly. Strictly speaking, only the prologue missions of 1 and 3 and the ending of 3 can be considered "military SF" in that sense.

* Creator/DavidDrake does quite a bit of [=MilSF=]. Like with Ringo, below, he's also written in the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series (Drake's Honorverse short story "A Grand Tour" influenced what became the Literature/{{RCN}} series, with [[TheCaptain the dashing Captain]] and his [[BadassBookworm librarian from Hell]] friend/sidekick as the primary focus).

* Creator/TimothyZahn has played heavily in this field. In addition to his StarWarsExpandedUniverse work (his biggest claim to fame in that field probably being TheThrawnTrilogy), he's done, among others, ''Literature/TheCobraTrilogy'' and ''Literature/TheConquerorsTrilogy''.
