I'm gonna guess it was a fairly recent planetary collision. Likely two large, possibly planet sized moons of a gas giant. Possibly planets captured by the Gas Giant...The dust cloud is being protected from solar wind by the Gas Giant's magnetic field. We don't see the Gas Giant because it's orbital plane is skewed just enough we don't see it transit, but we do see the big ball of dust orbiting it transit Tabby's Star. The variation in the periodicity and intensity of the observed dimming is because the dust cloud is orbiting the planet and the planet is orbiting the star. So the shape of the dust cloud (likely kind of a crescent or ring) and where it is in it's obit around the planet effects the timing and intensity of the transit we observe.

We don't see heat from the collision because although recent on an evolution of star systems time scale none the less enough time has past that it has cooled below our ability to detect it.
