If I might say, Ben, retconning Zeta Cygni into something that was found (perhaps stolen?) from something that the WDF slapped together in a couple decades was one of the best editorial decisions you ever made.

Even in a ridiculous universe (I love UF, but it's inherently a little ridiculous and that's part of the charm) "Gryphon and Co. strip-mine most of the galaxy to scrape up the mass needed to build that thing" was a little bit too ridiculous.

Having it be a mysterious object of unknown provenance that we just happen to be living in provides a shit-ton more cool-ass story seeds and potentialities than it just being a this thing they built on time and on budget.

I personally like to imagine that there's a thriving collection of archaeologists and civilization hunters, some well-intentioned, some not, perpetually crawling all over the interior. As well as an equally thriving collection of people trying to get them to stop crawling all over that thing, or at least be a little but more careful before laying in excavation charges and/or pulling things that look like levers.

I bet the Jones boys and Liara T'Soni have had some adventures inside that thing.
