There is a sci-fi book whose premise is that a FTL drive is very primitive technology discovered by most alien races some time between their equivalents of the Bronze Age and Middle Ages. The galaxy is rife with what amounts to ancient Romans flying through space conquering each other. Occasionally, a race reaches the Victorian era before developing FTL travel.

With other technology far in advance of other species, humanity quickly expanded to other stars conquering the native populations and forming an empire called the Terran Confederacy. However, this expansion was too quick and too extensive. It became impossible to administer and so collapsed.

Some years after the first contact with an alien species, a few human colonies, including Loki , had regained most of the technological knowledge of the Terran Confederacy, both by rediscovery and by scavenging ruins.

But after enough time, memory dumps or no. Chang did not trust his machine very far.

Herbig—Haro objects HH are small patches of nebulosity associated with newly born stars, and are formed when gas ejected by young stars collides with clouds of gas and dust nearby at speeds of several hundred km per second. Herbig—Haro objects are ubiquitous in star-forming regions, and several are often seen around a single star, aligned along its rotational axis. HH objects are transient phenomena, lasting not more than a few thousand years. The objects were first observed in the late 19th century by Sherburne Wesley Burnham, but were not recognised as being a distinct type of emission nebula until the s.
