It would totally suck to evolve on a planet around a star that was going to die. Or next to a gamma ray burster. Or in the path of a drifting rogue planet or orbiting asteroid or around a flare star.

Planets have been spotted around neutron stars. Formed from the left over exploded stuff. I imagine it's all highly radio active. That would suck.

Or too close to a supernova. Or in a system with a black hole or giant planet on a very eccentric orbit.

And when the stars were right, They could plunge from world to world through the sky, but when the stars were wrong, They could not live.

Or passing through a giant star forming nebula.

Or in the same system as one.

No, it's intelligent life on the surface of a neutron star. You're probably thinking of Frederik Pohl's "Gateway" series.
