The Virus sourcebook
From the back of the book:
Throughout the bleak night if The Collapse, the long dark shapes of warships, scoured clean of organic life, still prowled the now-lonely space lanes and cast their deadly shadows over half a thousand worlds. Imbued with malignant intelligence, and a taste for apocalyptic violence, the vampire fleets methodically finished the work that the first wave of Virus infection had so haphazardly begun. After seventy-five years, humankind finally stood back against the edge of the abyss, only one more short step seperating them from oblivion.
Passive defense is no longer enough. If humankind is to reclaim the stars, it wil have to be past the ruptured hulls and shattered computer brains of the vampires. Defeating the vampire fleets is a task of nearly impossible scope and difficulty, but the journey of a thousand miles by an entire species begins with a single step by a small band of people.
