Fool's War by Sarah Zettel is a dissimilar novel that hits most of the points, even number four (if you define things very loosely).

Ooh: Blindsight by Peter Watts. It's got that "people in a ship with dangerous and scary stuff going on" vibe down pat. The Tartarus Incident by William Greenleaf is similar, though they get off the ship for most of it, IIRC.
