I doubt any of the usual cast would be interested, but how feasible would it be to mount a follow-up scientific expedition? I suppose all it would take is one fold-capable science vessel, if the Zentraedis are willing to share the location of the star. It might be interesting to backtrace where it was in the galaxy at the estimated time of the sphere's construction and see if there's anything interesting in its old neighborhood, too (nasty astrography problem though).
