Actually I would like to have the author's name.  The main character was a woman captain named, I believe, Cdr. Amanda Blake.  The story line was about a state of the art destroyer and some of its missions. TIA

Sounds like the trilogy written by James H. Cobb.  The captain is Amanda Garrett.

A truly excellent series of four books - I wish he'd write more of them. I like them and my father also liked them, although our taste in books was usually completely different. Chosers of the Slain is the first one, followed by Sea Strike and Seafighter, and ending with Target Lock.
