Re: "the chase" Reprucussions

The alternative of course is that the Preservers themselves, or remaining Preservers were in a state of degradation themselves...and they died out instead of passing on. Providing an asteroid deflector was the most they could manage.

Edit: Also any Preservers who chose to stay "past their prime" to help or influence younger races with asteroid deflectors also has a precedent in lit, two examples that come to mind are The Culture series and with the Greg Bear Halo novels.
