Petey has mind-ripped a Gatekeeper. Everything he knew, Petey knows.
In the language of the F'Sherl-Ganni, or Gatekeepers, these Dark Matter Entities are called the Paan'uri.
The Fleetmind knows it all, too, and now must brief the mere mortals.
Fleetmind A.I. I:
Roughly six million years ago the Paan'uri and the progenitors of the F'Sherl-Ganni fought a war over the teraport.
Fleetmind A.I. II:
Teraports were already the cause of wars in the universe of "normal" matter. Destructive as those wars were, they paled in comparison to the fight with the Paan'uri.
Teraport activity was "polluting" Paan'uri "space," and they put a stop to it very simply, attacking any gravitic source capable of generating a wormhole, and then forcing the nearest star to explode.
Losses were great on both sides, and the Paan'uri agreed to a treaty
Fleetmind A.I. III:
They retreated to the Andromeda Galaxy, and the F'Sherl-Ganni agreed to develop a system of wormgates instead of using teraports.
Then, 100,000 years ago, the Paan'uri provided the F'Sherl-Ganni with instructions for creating a zero-point-energy drive at the core of the Milky-Way galaxy.
Wait. . . The core generator is a drive?
Yes and no. Yes, its stated purpose was to prevent the two giant galaxies from their inevitable merge.
Fleetmind A.I. IV:
But no, the Paan'uri did not intend it as a drive. It has become clear that their intent was to use it to destroy their enemies forever.
And they tricked the F'sherl-Ganni into building it!
So. . . next up on the to-do list: Declare war on the Andromeda Galaxy.
