The thought that an alien civilization is out there building something around two suns is terrifying.

More than entire planets. Just to manufacture a Dyson array with 75% coverage at 1 AU would take the rest of the Solar System's resources, from Mercury to the Oort Cloud.
Would that not mean massive destruction everywhere they go and along the path? Because of the gravitional pull? And would it not take up most of the energy to just move the star?
