You are in the same position as the Ur-quan just before the first doctrinal war. What are you calling for?

Put the sentients on a ringworld, because ringworlds are cool.

Yeah. To elaborate on that option, the reason they'll never get off is becuse you can't mine on a Ringworld, you just get down to the scrith and either can't dig or get sucked into space. There are no spare material resources to speak of.

*Bzzzt* Wrong, but thank you for playing. A ringworld is a huge ring (roughly 1 au in radius) built around a star. Ringworlds are generally assumed to be designed for habitation.

Yes, because Halo ripped off Larry Niven. Grin
(so did Sc2 Tongue)

Acutally, I think the concept of a ringworld was around before the novel was written, but he sure as hell popularized it.

I'll admit I didn't know what was meant by "ring world" until it was explained.

If you want to go further into sci-fi vernacular, the Star Trek series (old, new, whatever) refers to them as Dyson's Spheres when they've appeared in the shows.
