I'm wondering how they're going to 'patrol' the galaxy for 'incomings'. I suppose incoming-light imagery wouldn't be enough, and it would take a periodic certain-frequency multidirectional 'wave blast', to pick up its return reflecting from anything hiding out there... great way to announce our presence, too.

Or am I thinking too much again?
