Hi All, new here...

I'm trying to recall the Title and Author of a series I read some time ago. Can't remember much but some details on the story, just hoping someone might have an idea what I'm talking about.

The story was set in current/shortly distant future times, mostly in the US, where a new method for FTL travel has been found by using a certain rare element. The US, Russia, and Brazil are in a space race to colonize some known planets. The story centers mostly around the US colony, and their encounters with an existing race of humanoid masters and insectoid sentients on the planet. I don't have much more detail than that. Any one have any thoughts?
