3. If possible earth might not even be involved at all other than in some backstory stuff.
4. I am looking for some thing between Alien movies and Moon(not twilight) movie or even Dead Space (it's a PS3 game).
5. Avoid long series (except if it is a strong contender) because again i don't want to experiment (just this time). 1-3 books will do.
6. It can be a mix of following genres (in left to right order)- sci-fi, adventure, horror, action
If you are wondering why i am being so specific, its because i have had ample share of bad books and plus i always like such setting in stories.
The Gold at the Starbow's End by Frederik Pohl meets your every criteria, I think.

Boat of a Million Years by Poul Anderson gets to spaceships eventually!
