Therefore you will have a galaxy where ever you find a star, and hence billions upon billions of stars in the night sky. This is independent of the galaxy's "distance from us".

Whatever inhabitants of this far away planet ... could just as easily say, "I've heard that there are planets (Earth) so far away from us that they don't see stars in their night sky." ..... Obviously a fallacy!
