Perhaps the stars weren't just teleported|moved|warped|gated to somewhere else, but somewhen else. Presumably back in time and some distance away. Unless the Silver Empire is meant to be dropped (basically) whole into the middle of the aftermath of the war against the Suul'Ka.

Also, I suspect that Immaculate Pearl and her ships met a different fate than the Silver Empire. Perhaps they were flung into the past?

I wonder where the queen jewels have been found and under what circumstances.

I wonder.... butr apparently the answer was "an hiver of unknown lineage brought them back".

Considering the jewels were lost when a (hypothesis, since I doubt the queen would have gone in tarka space alone) the queen was in Tarka space.... one might wonder if said hiver's "unknown lineage" was -not- because they couldn't be recognized amongst the current clans.... because it wasn't from any "current" clans being a descendant of "past" clans

You can find additional details on how the jewels were returned if you search these forums.

However I'm not asking how the were returned. I'm asking where they've been found. :)

That Hiver was from a Solforce colony and he did not have all the jewels, IIRC. (Ziggy the Hiver. Note his uniquely non Hiver name. :D He is in the Encyclopedia Look him up ;) )
Where the rest came from or who brought them back I dunno.

As for "stranded Hivers and Silver Imperium" hanging around in secret...
Considering a the Jewels are internal organs, and the Queen usualy must die before giving them up/passing them on, it is highly unlikely.
Even if the "stranded Hivers and Silver Imperium" were just transported elsewhere, the Hivers would have entered their own little Interregnum, upon attempting to return the Jewels. (Remember only some were returned by Ziggy from Solforce)

More likely the event killed/destroyed the "stranded Hivers and Silver Imperium" and scattered the bits across the Universe? Local Sector of the Galaxy? Whole Galaxy?
Im gunna go with local sector of the Galaxy since the Jewels were actualy recovered..
EDIT:
Just had a thought.
What if the event was like a Black Mirror, and sent them to the other side of the Meniscus, but the Jewels were somehow unable to remain there?

Erdrik, Ziggy didn't return the Crown Jewels.

I think Ziggy had been involved in a treaty between humans and hivers, but beyond that I can't recall.

But that's getting away from the subject of the Silver Imperium.

There is a much more detailed biography of him in the SotSpedia. Hiver Race, "Famous Hivers".

I just realized that my gut tells me the fate of the silver empire won't be explored in depth until SOTS3. I don't know why I feel that way, just the vibe I'm getting.

SOTS3 era tech seems to be more on that level of mysteries I suppose?

Erinys did confirm (don't remember which thread) that the Silver Empire was at a higher tech level than the maxed out tech tree in SotS ][. Thus my previous pondering about dropping it into the aftermath of the Suul'Ka war.
