      A human team sent to scout a few hundred lightyears in front of the death wave encounters a civilization far more advanced, a civilization of machine intelligences.

      These sentient, intelligent machines have existed for eons, and have survived earlier “death waves,” gamma ray bursts from the core of the galaxy. Self-sufficient and completely certain that the death wave cannot harm them, they have no interest saving other civilizations, organic or machine.
