Humans are a Wolfling species without a patron race to protect them. This puts them at a severe disadvantage in galactic society. The efforts of humans to uplift Chimpanzee and Dolphin before making contact is the only reason they command any respect. Contact was extremely messy, the galactics had no experience with learning unknown languages, something the humans proved to be much better at. Only able to afford poor and sick planets, humans are also proving to be resourceful at healing ecologies, one the more noble professions in the eyes of the galactics.
