Fermi Paradox and Percolation Theory
It's also not clear how much longer Terragen Civ will continue to expand in its current fashion. If a large part of the civ moves into the virtuality or goes solipsist or mysteriously vanishes as past civs apparently have, then there could be a period when the remaining exploration and colonization (or pre-colonization) systems keep operating at a ever reducing level of effectiveness that results in a 'patchy colonization wave' that gets ever patchier for a time and then eventually peters out. Stellar drift and time would then create even more gaps until some new civ started filling things in for another cosmic eyeblink of time.

Just a thought or two.
