I just found it so hilarious I had to share it.

Playing a 'casual' game for afternoon relaxation with the Starfall mod v. 1.10
Having a nice lil' rivalry with the Gizurean.
Got a protectorate.
Protectorate allied to 5 empires.
Those empires allied to 5 empires each.
My enemy has a protectorate.
That protectorate has 5 allies.
Those allies has 5 allies each.
2 random 1 colony minors declear war on the other side of the galaxy.
Giant alliance network triggers that would make ww1 look like a kindergarden fight.
War begins.
I spend the next 5 mins just clicking away my protectorate call to arms to all other 40 empires i the galaxy.
Game starts running again after being lagged out by the galactic news broke trying to display all war triggers at the same time.
My stations and fleets (which was ready for this war belive it or not) begins annihilating all vessels in mine and the surrounding systems.
Game doesnt even update fps anymore. Just have to let game run to process then pause in order to update the frames and see the progress of the battles.
Games tries to save.
Can't save.
Save gets corrupt and crashes.
10/10 would start a galactic war making the war with the shakturi feel like a walk in the park again.

Too bad you couldn't save. I've had the same situations as you did, and that's why I avoid protectorates and MDP's mostly.
