What happens if an advanced civilization develops on a rogue star are they just doomed to never ever go to another star system.

    Assuming FTL travel isn't a thing, yes.

    Assuming anti-gravity isn't a thing, same if they develop on a world with much more than 2x Earth's gravity.

    Hell, we're developing on a world with reasonable gravity with other solar systems reasonably close by, and there's a good chance we may never visit another solar system.

      Earth's gravity-well is deep enough to keep humans down, and Mars got giga-nuked to eradicate life making it unusable as affordable starting point for space colonization.

    It would probably be hard for them to realize that galaxies are made up of stars like theirs.

      so no telescopes?

        No reason they couldn't make telescopes

    No, there's about as many stars in intergalactic space as there are inside galaxies and if its possible to travel to other stars within a galaxy its possible to get to the stars inbetween galaxies.

    would their sky be really dark?
    galaxies are really dim to the naked eye in our sky

      No, even the brightest stars in the night sky are pretty dim.

    They might be in a better spot actually. The risk of being invaded by some Black person homosexual aliens is lower, they can build Dyson sphere without giving much shit about muh dark forest. By the time they are able to get to the galaxy, they are fricking prepared.

    I suppose that largely depends on what amount of material/energy you need to develop so that you can go these distances. If its more than one solar system they are kinda fricked.

      The dark forest isn't really good analogy for space, a dyson swarm is not going to be mistaken for a natural object.

    You could reach Andromeda in 30 years, if you could go at nearly the speed of light. The reason is time dilation and length contraction. Obviously the time would go by a lot faster on the home world. But theoretically, yes they'd totally be able to reach a galaxy as a species. There's no inherent physical barrier.

      Traveling close to the speed of light would need a ship that could survice colliding with all the motes of gas and dust, because you're not going to be to have a point defense system that can remove them beforehand at that speed.

    Not going anywhere without near light speed travel.

    Which would require incredible technological advances over what we have presently.
    Therefore we need to increase the numbers of the people capable of sustained innovation, concentrate all our natural and human resources on STEM education and technological development, while greatly reducing the number of unproductive and less intelligent members of our society, while also eliminating wasteful consumerism.

    >Proceed to do exactly the opposite of that.

    We aren't going anywhere outside this gravity well.

    You build a planet-size spaceship or turn your whole system into a spaceship so it can endure a voyage lasting millions of years. Alternatively, you build a Dyson sphere to send ships 99% of the speed of light so it barely experiences the voyage. If you want to travel to other galaxies, you need to think BIG.

      Exactly, stellar engines. as long as the star system has more than one terrestrial planet, it's not (too) far-fetched for them to eventually be capable of building a caplan thruster and a small dyson swarm.

        You may not even need to disassemble a planet, you can build a small dyson swarm out of asteroids and other debris and then use it to starlift all the material that you need
