I remember thinking, when Iain M. Banks died, what a shame it was that there was no real way to insert the Culture into the UF universe.
Then it occured to me that Special Circumstances might well think that the best way to help a somewhat troubled corner of the galaxy might be to give one of its more enlightened factions a free Dyson sphere, and see what happened.
(Or insert your favorite mysterious benevolent aliens here. There's certainly no shortage of them in UF's various source materials.)
