While approaching a Dyson Sphere in the direct center of the Seven Dwarves - seven white dwarf stars in an unexplored sector - the Bonaventure communicated with an AI on the surface, called the Watchman. It allowed entry into the sphere where they found a black hole in the center of the sphere sucking everything into it. Small communities were holding this at bay with the use of old and failing technology of gravitic repulsors. The ‘home’ that sent out the distress call had not meant to find them but others inside the sphere. After encounters with a raiding party seeking to steal the repulsors from the ‘Dal’ clan it became clearer that this community was dying without help. After some deliberation the Bonnie crew brought delegates from the three principle known regions - Sphere City, Second City and the Free Spheres to determine the extent of the problem and, if possible, offer a solution.
This is complicated with the emergence of the Arrhya once again - a reputedly powerful telepathic race who had been imprisoned in a neutronium satellite and placed in a low orbit of one of the Dwarf stars. The race known as the Bane who were in the region to ensure the Arryha did not become free has joined with the Bonnie crew as an unknown guide to the region, but cautioning that the Arryha do not gain access to the Dyson Sphere lest they try to use one of the ‘gateways’ inside. Sensors suggest they may still be there but dangerously close to the event horizon of the black hole. The risk being that using a gateway may cause the region to specially warp and cause the destruction of the Dyson Sphere and anything else in the area including the people living within.
