It's not the only star who's been showing erratic dimming. A bunch of other stars are also showing similar behaviour.
Unless it's the same species of aliens who decided to go constructing dyson spheres all over the galaxy at the same exact moment relative to Earth time, timing themselves to get busy right about the time Earth scientists starts looking for them, I believe the simplest cause for the dimming is a natural (and long-lived) one.
