Now my personal favorites of Cherryh's are The Pride of Chanur and the Heavy Time/Hellburner duology.

oops, just checked Fictionwise and apparently only Downbelow Station and The Pride of Chanur are available.
The Pride of Chanur is the first in a series of five. All are very good;
  1. The Pride of Chanur
  2. Chanur's Venture
  3. The Kif strike back
  4. Chanur's homecoming
  5. Chanur's Legacy

All but the fifth are available at Fictionwise.

Another great Cherryh book (stand alone but ripe for a sequel) is Cuckoo's Egg (also at Fictionwise).
