Fermi Paradox and Percolation Theory

Is it possible, that given enough time, one might find the remnants of a Terrangen analog on opposite sides of the galaxy?

Yes, that could happen. In the OA setting the Halogenics are an example of a civilization (or meta-civilization) that could probably detected by its traces almost anywhere. That there aren't the remains of one or several Terragen-type HEECs within the Terragen Sphere is a deep mystery in the 'reality' we've created for the setting. The Fermi Paradox as we experience it now in the real world is much milder than the version we've written into the OA setting.
