Ok, I'm an old fart so I remember reading this trilogy in the 80s when it first came out. Sundiver is the first, Startide Rising is the second and the Uplift War is the third in the series. A very very entertaining read about what happens when humans have fiddled with dolphin and ape DNA to the point where they are sentient and can communicate with humans. And then the humans take them into space with them to explore how humans became sentient. And then they find the oldest alien civilization, now defunct. And of course, all the other alien races want to extract this information from the human/dolphin/ape starship and crew. A delightful read and well written by David Brin, a scientist, so no glaring plot holes. Tight plotting, action packed and humorous.
