Especially if ancients have been going there since the beginning. Even if there originally was just empty space there, billions of years worth of ancients from a thousand galaxies could have made virtually anything there.
Don't let them fool you. It's just a very large old folks retirement villiage, where they play scrabble mostly. :wink:

There's always the futurama version

"The Near Death Star"

Where they are all plugged into a matrix imagining they are in a retirement home in Florida with other old races and complain about the younger generation for all eternity"

if it is the dark void between galaxies (the view i favour) then perhaps the first ones could be travelling towards the edge of the universe, where the younger, more recently formed galaxies lie, so that they can explore a fresh, new galaxy, and help any younger races they find there ... to start the cycle all over again

You mean, except for the two Magellanic Clouds - detailed in D&L as having several space-faring races (and in the Greater Cloud's case, a middleborn race quite willing and able to keep the Galactics out of what it claims as its own turf!) - though news from there has been short on the ground these past few million years, since the expeditionaries flew back to the Milky Way galaxy...
