Two Scifi examples that come to mind are a book, GreenFlies (http://www.amazon.com/Greenflies-Andrew-Darling-ebook/dp/B00...) that has a fun example of a super-predator type-3-ish civilization, and the motivations that would create the galaxy we see today. David Brin also has a great book, Existence (http://www.amazon.com/Existence-David-Brin-ebook/dp/B0079XPM... ), that is an example of a super-predator meme that may also be a natural great filter for any intelligent civilizations that pop up.

Full disclosure, my brother is the author of the first book.

David Brin (you may remember him as the author of "The Postman", but not the screenwriter of the movie) has a fantastic novel on this.[0]
