The technological background is less constrained. Inspections and boarding actions are far more common than battles. I picked this one up as a bargain book and was impressed with its quality.
Even with need for electricity rather than mechanical power alone, the many thousands of tons involved in a space warship would allow it to have nuclear power generation at least in the gigawatt range or higher, likely terawatts for large ships.
These books are simply excellent. Each book of this series includes 20 detailed accounts of battles of pages, complete with context, pictures, information boxes, and colourful maps.

For example, even with fission devices, if the orbiting warships are firing quarter-kiloton-yield nuclear shells or missiles against targets like enemy aircraft, it would take on the order ofwarheads even just to exceed the limited radiological contamination from the MT fission component of the preceding nuclear tests.
