Suppose an advanced civilisation (or more than one) made itself a Dyson Sphere among some stars at the edge of the Galaxy, where the gravity isn't as intense as being near the core... so that the Sphere was more structurally stable.
You'd need to add a theory as to why star formation at the edge of galaxies is more common seeing as dark matter seems to be more common than normal matter.

Besides, dark matter seems to be important in the actual formation of galaxies (and galaxy clusters) as far as I know.

But astrophysics not exactly my specialty ...
