If intelligent life were to arise there billions of years from now, long after the stellar fireworks, the beings would behold a brilliant icy white dwarf and red dwarf in the daytime sky.
What makes this stellar grouping the stuff of science fiction is that at some point in the far future it is conceivable there could be at as many as three inhabitable planets or moons scattered in the system. The one binary that has two widely separated stars might posses two independent planetary systems.
If so, it is conceivable that space faring civilizations could each arise around the sun-like star, and red dwarf. Once space travel is achieved, they could physically come in contact with each other, assuming the biologies aren't so different that planet visitation isn't practical.
A civilization at the wide binary pair would eventually make the very long journey to the other binary system where the newly discovered planet dwells. the planets in this companion system would have greatly cooled off following the demise of their white-hot star.
