What was that? (Destiny)

That was... Humanity knowing that something was coming? Not detecting something was coming... that we had sensors and detectors and such is obvious here, but having code names and plans for an extinction event might mean that Humanity wasn't just living it up in its Golden age, but was rather trying to prepare for the arrival of the Darkness.

If we were beat during our Golden Age when we knew something was coming...

My guess is there were some hints we gleaned from the Traveller that it works against the Darkness. We knew to prepare for something. Whether there were records provided by the Traveller of previous uplift events (currently my favorite idea), or simply evidence of a conflict, the Collapse was not entirely unforseen, it seems.
