"Why do we put up with this? Giving away our eggs?"

"It's very simple. If you're worth something to the humans, they protect you. If you are worthless, but harmless, they ignore you. If you are dangerous, they destroy you. It is better to have protected species status, than be like the Dongranii."

"When the humans spread to our arm of the Galaxy, the Dongranii were dominant. They terrorised everyone! They thought they could do the same to the humans. The humans took great pains to point out that they couldn't, and now they are very, very, extinct."
