Re Anne's last instalment (After the Fall);

Since something like 2500 years have also passed on Earth and its colonies (and probably a whole lot more colonies added since Pern was settled), it won't be the same baggage at all.

I'd guess that the FSP has simply been spreading in the general direction of Pern over the centuries. Somebody may have dug up the report of the Amherst (Rescue Run) and come up with a method of destroying Thread at the source; then someone turns up with a load of terra-forming equipment to make the "dead planet" inhabitable again. Too late, the Pernese already fixed the problem --- unless it didn't stay fixed.
